Wiley E. Waters

Are you looking to join the river guide lifestyle? Our guides are what separate us from the rest of the rubber pushers out there. We are a hardworking crew that tries to embrace the river family environment. If running the river and being outdoors is a strong passion or even a habit at this point, you may fit in well with us!

The guides spend most of the summer rafting the Spokane and Clark Fork Rivers. Our whitewater trips start in late April on the Spokane River in Eastern Washington and transition to the Clark Fork River in Western Montana in July. From July to early September, full-time guides typically live at our “Guide Camp” in Superior, Montana. A perfect summer job for anyone living in the Spokane, Coeur d’ Alene, or Missoula area.

The guide lifestyle isn’t for the faint of heart. Our whitewater guide training will give you the tools and experience necessary to guide guests down class III & IV rapids safely. Unlike most whitewater guide courses, we don’t charge for the training unless the guide doesn’t fulfill 15 commercial trips.

To apply: Please submit an updated resume along with a summary about yourself stating why you feel you’d be a good river guide. Also, please note river experience, if any.
