Washington Whitewater Rafting
Nisqually River


Within 45 minutes of Olympia, the Nisqually River provides a leisurely class 1 to 2 float. Thick forest and abundant wildlife serve as the backdrop to this trip. Most of the scenery on this trip is untouched by modern man providing a window into the past. The Nisqually River is raftable for most of the year but spring through early fall is the preferable time as the weather is warmer.
