Our experience from arrival, lunch at the cafe, safety talk, rafting, our guide, snacks, bus pickup, etc. was A+. I would certainly give the highest recommendation to White Otter. Rafting was exciting, thrilling and a great experience.Pam S.

One of our children is mobility impaired, and the staff made a consistent effort to include and yet not single her out; allowing her to participate at a level where she was comfortable. I really appreciate how naturally her limitations were incorporated and yet not focused upon.Trey M.

My family had an incredible day with White Otter. Their guide was a remarkable individual. She gave them a powerful memory of running the Salmon as a team and one they shall never forget! Sons and Grandsons in a raft, paddling in unison through dynamic wilderness in whitewater, is a grandparents dream! We commend White Otter for their whitewater savvy skills, leadership, and for just plain FUN.Laura B.

It was my first time ever whitewater rafting, and I had the time of my life. Our guide was amazing. Everyone who works here is very kind and has such a great sense of humor. It was amazing. If I ever get the chance to come back to Idaho, I will definitely raft with White Otter again!!!Cheyane R.

White Otter went above and beyond my expectations. I ended up going by myself, and am so glad I did, as they made sure I had a great time and treated me like family. Top notch staff, equipment, photography and food. The trip had the perfect amount of excitement, and the views cannot be beat. Our guide was phenomenal. Very knowledgeable, skilled and had a great sense of humor. Definitely the highlight of my summer!Alicia M.

Our guide was awesome. He made the trip for our family so enjoyable, entertaining and educational. The location of White Otter is such an advantage to be right on the river which eliminates the need for a long bus ride to the beginning of the trip. Every single person that we interacted with was so personable, thoughtful and fun. What an amazing group! And the snacks were top notch!Brad H.

White Otter provided first class care from greeting upon our arrival, through outfitting for our raft trip, safety briefing, quality of guiding, camaraderie in the boat and just plain fun on the river. We stopped for a swim and a break with delicious homemade snacks. Returned to base in a nice clean van. Checkout was simple and photos were sent even before we said goodbye. Recommend highly.Lawr001

White Otter is a self-contained rafting/kayaking outfit and cozy restaurant with great food for pre- or post-river enjoyment. One of the things that makes White Otter stand out is that they put in right below their location, so no bus ride to the put-in spot. Their pick up is also below that of the other Stanley-based rafting companies, so you get more time on the river. Pick up is an incredibly efficient process to watch, and from landing to getting into the return bus only took about 10 minutes.SVJeffS

The trip was just rough enough to get your heart rate up, but not scary at all for beginners. Our guide was cheerful, funny and made things easy.Laysh

We do a White Otter trip EVERY summer if we can. Took my family from Kentucky on the trip this year, and we all had a blast. The guides are fun, love what they are doing, get the kids involved, and share their knowledge of the place generously. HIGHLY recommend going with White Otter!Ryan W.

Our group of 7 adults totally enjoyed our rafting experience. The scenery was beautiful, had enough thrills to satisfy all aboard and enough calm areas to relax and take in nature. But what made our trip extra special was our guide, Sami. She made us feel safe, shared information about the area and was a pleasure to be with. Thank you White Otter!Cynthia B.
