Wet Planet

Wet Planet offers exciting rafting and kayaking trips on the White Salmon River, Wind River, Klickitat River, and Tieton River. Each river has spectacular scenery, wildlife, and things you couldn’t see if you weren’t traveling by way of the river.

The White Salmon River, which is located right next to Wet Planet Headquarters is one of the few rivers in Washington that is designated for protection under the Wild and Scenic Rivers Act. The White Salmon is a breathtaking combination of whitewater and scenery. Fed by natural springs flowing from the glaciers of Mt. Adams, the White Salmon cascades through narrow, cliff lined basalt canyons before heading out into the warm sunshine of a forested valley.

Throughout the trip, rafters are treated to continuous class III – IV rapids that challenge even the most adventurous guests. In between the rapids, there is a chance to view lava formed rock walls, float alongside the rafts in crystal clear pools, and watch for wildlife in forests that are only accessible from the river. This incredible trip is highlighted by a vertical plunge over the legendary 10′ high Husum Falls and keeps people coming back every year for another great rafting or kayaking experience.

The Wind River is one of the most challenging commercial rafting runs in the Pacific Northwest, the Wind River cascades through tightly spaced boulder gardens and steep ledge drops in a series of class IV to class V rapids. Set in a deep canyon, spectacular waterfalls, towering cliffs, and strange clay walls create an unforgettable atmosphere for a spectacular trip.

The Klickitat River descends from the snow fields of Mt. Adams and the Goat Rocks Wilderness, passing through some of the most remote wilderness canyons in the Pacific Northwest. With virtually no access to the steep canyons, basalt cliffs, twisted lava formations, and scrub oak forests other than the put-in and take-out, this is the ideal trip for rafters who want to experience the magic of a pristine wilderness river trip.
