Founded 1978

...AS AN INTERNSHIP THROUGH WWU'S RECREATION PROGRAM. 

WE'VE BEEN BUILDING COMMUNITY ONE RIVER TRIP AT A TIME EVER SINCE.

 

Orion River Rafting wasn't created to make money.  It wasn't designed to take advantage of a niche.  People, Purpose, Pleasure and, then Profits.  That has always been our mantra.  Our hallowed mission statement.  After four decades, it is still a work in progress, but that remains our goal.

 

Trainers

Passionate about teaching river rafting from A to Z, and back again.
