Different Rafts Used on the Rogue River

The Rogue River offers the opportunity to paddle your own inflatable kayak, enjoy the excitement of a paddle raft, or ride aboard a comfortable oar rig piloted by your skilled guides.

Generally, there is a variety of river craft on all trips and most people enjoy trying all available craft. However, there are logistical constraints that also determine how many and which type of craft is offered. It is always important to come with a flexible attitude about sharing the various craft opportunities.

Oar Boat

Oar-Rigs are 16', self-bailing rafts piloted by your guide, and therefore less "participatory" than other boats. All you have to do is hang on!

Paddle Raft

Paddle Rafts get you in the action of the rapids as a participant. A skilled guide steers from the back of the raft, but propulsion depends on you. Your guide will give clear orders on how to paddle, so it's easy to learn quickly. Paddle rafts are 14' in length and will hold 4 to 6 guests.

Inflatable Kayak

Inflatable Kayaks are exciting, every time! Follow the other boats through each rapid. Steering and propulsion all depend on you with an inflatable kayak! These rafts are 11 - 13' long and carry one or two people.
