The Skykomish River was selected in 1977 as the first river in Washington’s Scenic Rivers Program.

At Chinook Expeditions, we offer a variety of whitewater rafting trips and natural history float tours on the Skykomish River.

There are 67 contiguous channels and riparian corridors that comprise this exceptionally beautiful river. Its crystal green waters flow through a steep forested valley beneath spectacular 6,000 foot snowcapped mountains and jagged peaks.

Along the moss covered banks there are ancient fir and hemlock rising between stands of alder and cottonwood.

The name “Skykomish” means “the inland people”, the first inhabitants of the region.

The “Sky Valley” is also home to thundering waterfalls, awesome granite gorges and some of the Pacific Northwest’s wildest and most scenic river rafting experiences.

We design and guide custom river journeys that challenge 20 miles of Washington’s most exciting whitewater rapids on the legendary Skykomish.

We also conduct relaxing scenic float tours where we drift down calm sections of the river looking for wildlife and just enjoying the spectacular view of the surrounding mountains.

Our specialty is in combining two or three days of rafting different sections of the river with camping, fishing, hiking and horseback riding. Join us for a day or a weekend and experience one of the most rewarding and inspiring outdoor adventures offered anywhere in Washington.


Our highly experienced trip leaders run regularly scheduled voyages on the Skykomish River year-round. The skill and professionalism of our veteran guides allow people from all walks of life to participate in our trips. All of our adventures emphasize small groups, safety and ecological responsibility. We are local guides well educated in the geological and natural history of the “Sky” valley. Our guiding philosophy is based on having fun and providing experiences beyond your expectations. As your personal guides, we offer opportunities to discover and explore places that other people may not even know about. We know the Skykomish at all levels, so when you want to challenge the biggest whitewater or have a great time in the lowest of water levels, we’ll give you the gusto. Our two decades of professional rafting experience inspires confidence and an organized atmosphere.

As you reserve a trip everything is provided for you. All of our trips include one of Washington’s most experienced guides in each 14’ self-bailing paddle or oar raft. We provide all your river safety equipment, wetsuits and transportation from our meeting site. Midway during your trip you’ll be treated to our world famous riverside feast at a beautiful beach near our half way point. On overnighters we provide all kitchen and camp gear, plentiful meals, cooking, campfire entertainment and comfortable accommodations. We take pride in offering our guests the highest quality river journeys with maximum river time. We guarantee whichever trip you choose will be a convenient and cost effective vacation, as well as an adventure worth repeating
