Great time on the river with our Scout troop and families. Emma was our boats guide and did a great job. The river was warm the air cool. We went about 16 miles on the river in about 2 1/2 hours. All equipment was furnished. My only advice is to bring something to stand on that you don't mind getting dirty when you change in and out of your wetsuit and booties. On a side note the steak after the trip was excellent.

I recently rafted the Wenatchee with Marcos Colella at Blue Sky... What a trip! Besides being extremely knowledgeable, Marcos made the trip fun, and exciting while considering the safety of all in our raft and in the other four rafts with us. In an industry that is seasonal with river guides that are youthful and looking for temporary seasonal employment, Marcos quickly excels in his experience on the water. Blue Sky should be honored to have such an experienced river raft guide. Thank you Marcos for a GREAT experience! ALWAYS ASK FOR MARCOS! He is definitely the best of the best...

Visited on Aug. 5. Was looking for a mid-day activity for myself and the Ms. before driving up to Chelan, so we chose to float with them on the Wenatchee. Overall super relaxing, plenty of time to stop and swim, cool & clear water, and nice gear (NRS tubes with bungee cords and carabiners). Easy check in, quick shuttle up and kind staff at the shore. Did not get the cooler but was able to bring a few pocket-drinks and a ziploc bag for keys/wallet. Water is calm and slow moving, perfect for a lazy saturday :)

We made a last minute decision to river raft (booked the same day). We made the 2 hour trip from Seattle and this rafting experience did not disappoint. They provided wet suits for those in our party that needed them (wear your bathing suit if you can). They also provided water shoes. After a quick van ride we made it to our river entrance. Before we entered, we had a rafting lesson and went over river rafting safety. Our guide ( I never caught his name but the day we went was his birthday and the other guide was Amber) was easy to understand and very thorough on explaining safety and making sure everyone's lifejacket was put on correctly. This was a first time rafting experience for two in our party and they were also 64 and 69 years old. Neither of these were an issue. Our birthday boy guide made us all feel very comfortable and was very clear on instructions while on the river. He was funny, friendly and very knowledgeable about rafting and the area. He made the entire experience super fun! Thanks for a fun time. We hope to visit again!

We are so glad that you had such a great time out on the water! Sweeney is one of our best guides and it's awesome to hear that he made your trip both safe and enjoyable. Hopefully we can get you out on the river next season!

2nd trip with Blue Sky. Impressed both times.

Just did the Tieton River outside of Yakima, WA. A solid river with class 3/4 rapids almost the entire route. About a 2hr rafting trip.

Ariel, our guide, challenged us to ride the puma, a smaller, lighter, more maneuverable raft among there fleet. He recognized our group's fitness level and pushed the envelope making the trip non-stop adrenaline without ever fearing for our safety. I will ask for him again when we go back.

He prepared us well, captained the boat like a master and had everyone laughing all ride long. We conquered high-noon head on, did some pillows and the even tried the splat. Our only regret was that we became the first swim team for Ariel all season.

We had perfect Eastern WA weather (low 80s and sunny) and happened to be there when the river was running at 100%.

Can't wait to do it again.
