They say it's a Splash!

Don't just take our word for it. Take a look at what people have to say after rafting with Bear Valley Rafting.
Bear Valley River Co gave us an incredible experience for our first whitewater rafting trip! We rafted the all day Cabarton excursion. We were a party of 5 (myself, two kids ages 10 & 12, and my parents). Just days before the trip, my mother injured herself and would not be able to assist in paddling. She called them to discuss it, and they had no reservations about her participation in the trip. We arrived, checked in and everyone we encountered was friendly, upbeat and excited, just like we were. They clearly posted their COVID-19 strategy online and adhered to it throughout. Our guide, Tommy, was great fun and knowledgeable. He was not over the top "cheesy" like some guides can be, and we had a great time. We felt we were in safe hands with him as our guide. Although the lunch was an individual sack lunch instead of their normal buffet style spread of salads, etc., it was incredible. They even took our sandwich order ahead. The sandwiches were high quality, with chips, crisp apple, and homemade cookies. It was a beautiful day, and no doubt they will receive our future business.

Had such a fun day rafting main fork of the payette. Our guide Savvy was awesome to our son with special needs and our two young daughters. Bear River made the experience very memorable and we hope to make this a yearly tradition.

We had an amazing time rafting with Bear valley! Ryan and TJ were the best guides, they made the trip down the Payette so much fun. Both made sure everyone was safe but having fun as well. Highly recommend this company, will definitely be back!

As part of our family reunion this week, we rafted the Payette on Tuesday and loved our experience with Bear Valley. ...We had a mix of children and adults and some with previous Payette experience and others with none. ... We could not have asked for a better experience. This was just our first time with Bear Valley; it won't be our last!

Bear Valley is a great outfit. Great guides and a fun time. We brought the family visiting from California and they are hooked on rafting now. Stephanie was a great guide with a boat with different skill levels. She was informative and fun! Bonus that it is just outside Boise! We look forward to coming back again and bringing out of town visitors also!

If you're thinking summer fun, a trip with Bear Valley Rafting Company is a MUST this year. We'll have fantastic water & the guides are the most knowledgeable & professional in our area. I wouldn't float with anyone else but BVRC!
