When you hire industry professionals, typically they come with experience from other outfitting companies, and there are some great ones out there. Triad River Tours is a progressive and "new school" rafting company, but our experience, systems, and protocols all stand on the shoulders of great companies and leaders that came before us to pave the way for safe rafting. Below are links to some companies that guides at our company have experience with and can highly recommend in good conscience. So if what you want is beyond the scope of our little company, please seek out one of these great commercial outfitters on the rivers mentioned, and please let them know that we sent you!

With big gaping waves, holes, and continuous whitewater, the guides at Bearpaw are rescue professionals to the highest degree. If you've seen it all and want to take it to the next level, give Bearpaw a call and brave the mighty Lochsa.
Idaho River Adventures | Middle Forks Salmon, ID
If you have been around the whitewater industry long, you've heard of the "middle fork", which is so well known that we don't even usually mention that it's a part of the Salmon River. It's a premier section of whitewater and this is the premier company to go with. Sometimes you find a company that specializes in one thing and just does that thing better than anyone else. The middle fork is the forte of these guys.
Adventure Cascades | Darrington, WA
While AC is our chief competitor on the Sauk River we respect and appreciate the way they run the river. Top quality rafts and guides ensure a great trip down what we feel is one of the best rivers in Washington. While we always recommend our trip, give these guys a call if we're booked up or if you're looking for a trip we don't offer on the Sauk.
