Whitewater rafting is one of Minnesota's hottest outdoor adventures. Our exciting 2½ hour trip is on the St. Louis River, just 15 miles south of Duluth. Jay Cooke State Park, the crown jewel of Minnesota's State Parks, is nearby. We provide high quality equipment, the bus ride back to our meeting place after your trip, and the friendliest, most experienced guides you'll ever meet. The cost of our rafting trip is only $40/person. Call (218) 384-4637 for our special adult group rates (15+ persons) and youth group rates.

Whitewater rafting is an absolute blast! Don't miss this fun opportunity to enjoy a thrilling adventure on this remote, scenic, whitewater stretch of the St. Louis River. We're proud of our exceptional safety record. After 29 years and thousands of happy paddlers annually, our worst accident has been a broken ankle. We excel at providing you with the safest and most fun river trip possible. We invite you to join us this season for a superb, exciting whitewater challenge you will long remember. You're in for a treat that can't be beat!

We operate daily, May through September. Our trips fill up quickly, particularly on Saturdays. So don't delay when making reservations, especially if your group size is large or your date is important. Call us soon to guarantee your date. Reservation payments are not due until 2 weeks prior to your trip date.

More challenging high water conditions, usually, but not always, occur early in the season (wet suits, if necessary, are available). A delightful combination of fun-filled rapids, with milder weather and river conditions, generally occurs later in the season. Due to variable weather, river flows in any season are always unpredictable. Feel free to call us if river flows are important to you. Regardless of high or low water conditions, it’s always a great time on the river with us.

Any combination of four, five or six people can share a raft. If yours is a group of less than four people, we'll pair you up with others. Normally, we can accommodate up to 52 guests per trip. Arrangements can be made for groups larger than 52 persons.

Regardless of previous experience (or lack of it), you belong on the river with us. This trip is ideal for first-timers, whitewater veterans, individuals, families and groups of all sizes. Our minimum age is 12 years old, no exceptions. You must have good hearing and understand English very well. You must be in good health, emotionally mature and intellectually sharp. You cannot be pregnant, and you must be sober and drug free before and during your trip. Anyone diagnosed with, or prescribed medication for, ADHD, ADD, ASPERGER'S SYNDROME, AUTISM or any similar DEVELOPMENTAL or COGNITIVE DISORDERS will be denied participation in our river rafting trips. For a list of our conditions, please read our "WHO CAN GO RAFTING WITH US".

FUN FOR EVERYONE!
No one is left behind...with Superior Whitewater’s
SIMULTANEOUS ADVENTURE OPPORTUNITY.

Whitewater Rafting is suitable for almost everybody. But, of course there are exceptions. Those in your group not rafting with us, either by personal choice or by not meeting our minimum requirements, have an alternate adventure opportunity available - Flatwater Lake Kayaking on pristine Lake Carlton. Lake Carlton is right in our back yard and unspoiled - “like the boundary waters - only closer”. Our Lake Kayak Rentals (with or without a guide) are suitable for anyone and can be enjoyed at the same time others in your group are whitewater rafting with us. Your lake kayaking group can get casual, relax and explore magnificent, island studded, Lake Carlton. And, here comes the best part - since the whitewater section of the St. Louis River flows into Lake Carlton, both the rafting and the lake kayaking groups meet on Lake Carlton and cross the lake together to end their paddling adventure. Our 1 or 2 person lake kayaks are the ideal alternative or an excellent addition to our exciting Whitewater Raft Tours. So, whether you and your friends choose either rafting or lake kayaking, or if your group chooses to split up (some rafting & others lake kayaking at the same time), or if you choose to enjoy both adventures at different times you’re going to love the opportunity for fun, adventure and excitement that we provide. Our 2 person lake kayaks rent for $10 per person per hour; our 1 person lake kayaks rent for $15 per hour. Click this LAKE KAYAK LINK or call us (218-384-4637) with any questions.

PLANNING TO RAFT THE NORMALLY HIGH,
AND USUALLY MORE CHALLENGING,
MAY RIVER FLOWS?
CHECK OUT OUR EARLY SEASON SPECIAL:
FREE WET SUITS IN MAY,
IF CONDITIONS WARRANT
(CALL FOR DETAILS)

IF YOU'RE RAFTING IN MAY, PLEASE READ THIS

Due to possible cold weather and water conditions throughout the month of May, we reserve the right to insist that you wear a wet suit during your river trip. Count on needing a full wet suit in early May, with that possibility diminishing toward the end of May. We have never insisted on wet suits the last week of May, but they are always available for rent. We rent wet suits for $12.00 a full suit and $6.00 a half suit. During the month of May, wet suits will be provided FREE OF CHARGE (ONLY if we insist on them for your safety, not your comfort or convenience - call for details).

WEAR NON-COTTON, SYNTHETIC CLOTHING. With or without a wet suit you should wear FLEECE, LYCRA, RAYON, SYNTHETIC OR WOOL shirts, sweaters, tights or long underwear. Synthetic clothing (top and bottom), especially windbreakers or rain suits, will keep you warm. The more dead air space insulating you, the better. Be sure to bring a FLEECE, LYCRA, RAYON, SYNTHETIC OR WOOL CAP, SOCKS and GLOVES (basically clothing you'd wear for skiing). Remember, minimize your cotton. COTTON DOES NOT INSULATE YOU WHEN WET, IN FACT IT WILL MAKE YOU COLDER. We run rain or shine (you’ll get wet anyway; keeping you warm is easy if you follow our advice). So, come prepared for the worst conditions. Bring as much of the recommended clothing as you can, and we’ll advise you what to wear upon your arrival for the trip.
