Boise River Float

The Boise River is open for floating from June to September. You can rent a raft and the life jackets at Barber Park in Southeast Boise. The float is typically very similar to a lazy river with a few more exciting moments! Check out the link for more information: http://boiseriverraftandtube.com/

Offering a variety of whitewater rafting trips from mellow half-day river floats to a full day of whitewater thrills, Cascade Raft offers the best Idaho rafting experience on the Payette River.
