Osprey Rafting, Leavenworth's hometown rafting company, offers a number of trips on the nearby Wenatchee River. Guides are team-building, "Whitewater Technicians" who know the right lines, cool play spots, and the sweet hits for river-jammin', foam-eating fun. Trips include complimentary local transportation, lunch, and all the gear needed for your safety and enjoyment including wetsuits, booties, paddles, lifejackets and splash jackets. The Wenatchee is the state's biggest Class III river, but also a low-hazard river. Big roller-coaster waves and plentiful wildlife - ospreys, great blue herons, belted kingfishers, black bear and deer - make the Wenatchee the most popular whitewater river in the state.
