Select your vessel — paddle rafts, kayaks or oarboats are included in the rate — and launch into one of the most popular stretches of the river. You’ll ride rapids at Onion Creek, Cloudburst, Ida Gulch and the famous Whites Rapid on class I or II whitewater, which are both generally mild.
After a day of rafting, celebrate with a barbecue lunch buffet. Experience this adventure starting at 275 Vacation Club Points for adults and 225 Vacation Club Points for children.
