Wiley E. Waters specializes in creating lasting memories for all group sizes, ranging from 5 to 100+ in Spokane, Coeur d’ Alene, or Missoula. Whether your business needs a constructive team-building day or a much-needed relaxing float, we can make sure your adventure’s perfectly planned from start to finish. You may choose to do the whitewater option, working together to successfully get through the rapids as a team (definitely a bonding experience), or select the mellow section that allows us to play trust/team-building games. Either option is an excellent opportunity to enrich and strengthen your group’s morale and cohesion after just a few hours of paddling on the river. Team building rafting trips are perfect for businesses/organizations, church groups, and youth camps. Our engaging river tours can be one of the most effective team or group building exercises, reminding all the basics of having fun while working together.
The Spokane River is a 3-hour tour that begins just a few minutes from downtown Spokane. Our whitewater and scenic tours are convenient to large groups traveling in Spokane. Morning and afternoon start times to compliment convention center/ business meetings. We frequently host many businesses/organizations visiting Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, looking for outdoor things to do for the day.
The Clark Fork River is a 3hr half-day or 5hr full-day rafting trip with lunch included on full-day. Either option is the perfect activity for large groups visiting the area of Missoula, Montana. Build lifelong memories with your group that will enrich everyone’s bond!
This route is the most adventurous on the Spokane River! We meet in Peaceful Valley and suit you up with all necessary equipment, including wetsuits when needed. We will instruct you with essential equipment and safety techniques prior to getting you on the river. Before you hit your first set of rapids, the Spokane River provides an abundance of wildlife and plenty of opportunities for swimming and or relaxing. Your guide will navigate you through two Class III rapids.

Next up is “Devil’s Toenail,” another exciting class III rapid with plenty of splashes and heart-pumping fun! Drinks are provided after the trip. Leave the noise and responsibility behind and allow us to create these live-in-the-moment memories that can be so rare and last a lifetime!

All the gorgeous scenery and wildlife that comes with Montana. Great swimming opportunities and the option for games on the raft. This trip ends with a cold post-trip cooler full of drinks for all ages.

This river has great swimming holes, rock jumping, and even a “hot spring” towards the end of the trip- not to be confused with Quinn’s hot springs or any hot spring for that matter. Your trip includes an all-you-can-eat buffet-style lunch because, yes, rafting is a workout. Water is provided at lunch, while water & adult beverages are provided at the end of the trip.
