The Bureau Of Land Management (BLM) administers more of your public lands–over 245 million surface acres mostly in the west–than any other federal agency in the United States. The BLM is the primary caretaker of your tax sponsored public lands which includes the the Lower Deschutes Wild and Scenic River in Central Oregon, a river that we know very well with decades of experience honing our craft on and perfecting what we believe is the standard in quality and safety for whitewater rafting on the Lower Deschutes River..Your river.

Whitewater rafting has evolved over the years and it’s no longer just extreme sports enthusiasts, adrenaline junkies, or weekend warriors looking for the thrill and rush that whitewater rafting offers.
