WHAT PEOPLE SAY ABOUT FORWARD PADDLE
We had an excellent day on the Deschutes with the Forward Paddle Rafting folks. A few previous reviews had me a bit worried, but it appears that they have cleaned up their act. Everything was handled very professionally – from the reminder email with detailed instructions the day before, the greeters when we pulled up, the head guide who was very thorough about the instructions, and our guide, Trevor. The guides are a bunch of really nice guys from the Sellwood area that really just want to be sure everyone is comfortable and having a great time. I highly recommend them – and the Groupon was nice, too!
I took my mom rafting with NHR for her birthday. She was nervous, but everyone there made her feel comfortable and made sure that everybody rafting that day had an awesome time. They sent out a map with detailed instructions on how to get to the meet up location in Maupin. We left from Portland and had no trouble finding it. It was about a two hour drive. They prepare you well for the trip and you can tell these guys are experts. Our guide’s name was Teddy and he let us know exactly what to do when we went through a rapid. I don’t think anyone on our raft had a negative thing to say about the trip. I highly recommend!
You couldn’t ask for a better group of people to take you down the river. From beginning to end, the guides and other staff were extremely welcoming, professional, and a lot of fun! I’ve been on several rafting trips and they’ve all been fun, but this one “takes the cake” because of the extra care and friendliness by the guides. And the river was awesome! highly recommend this company and will definitely be back again. Thank you!
I went with my family yesterday to go white water rafting with Forward Paddle Rafting. We had an absolute blast! The river was amazing and the rapids rocked our world! Jim was our guide, and he was extremely personable and made us feel very safe. Thanks Jim! We will definitely recommend them to anyone who asks and will use them anytime we want to go rafting. Thanks to all the guys at Forward Paddle!
It was an awesome time! It was my first time rafting and I went with my 9 year old son who was absolutely terrified. Our guide, Jim, was super patient, kind, and very comforting. A very big thank you for making our rafting trip so great.
Had a great day yesterday with our guides Teddy and Jeremiah! What great memories for us and our son home on leave from the Navy. We will be coming back for more. Highly recommended! Thank you, thank you, thank you.
Had an amazing, epic, awesome rafting trip on the Deschutes River. Excellent instruction provided. Our guide was friendly and personable, and great maps/instructions provided for where to meet. We can’t wait to go back again!
This is by far the best rafting floating trip I have ever done. Great staff and company.Staff did well with the younger bunch and great with adults. Clear insructions and great tips for the beginners. I would highly recommend them and will be going back.
These guys were fantastic. Brought a group of 6 rafting and had such a good time. They are very professional and take the time to prep you before every situation so you feel safe. We would not hesitate to raft with this company again!
