How Many Places in America Can You Go Whitewater Rafting?

Who really knows? There seem to be hundreds of companies up and down the rivers that will take you on trips and show you an enjoyable time. Some of the tours are scenic and others have challenging rapids. So, depending on what you’re looking for, there are places that match your style. Here is a list of 25 of the best whitewater rafting destinations in the US.

How to Choose Which Whitewater Rapids to Visit

Whitewater rafting_Class 1-2Each river has its own personality. Some rivers are calm and slow moving while others are feisty. They break the rapids into classes, so you know what type of river personality you’re signing up for.

CLASS #1 RAPIDS: These are slow-moving rivers with small waves. Class 1 rivers are easy to navigate and are often known for their scenic views. These are perfect choices for romantic occasions. You will see beautiful sunrises and sunsets and enjoy the tranquility of nature.

CLASS #2 RAPIDS: These moderate rivers, are also scenic. They are great for conversation, photos, a bit of adventure and you might get sprayed with a hint of water.

Class 1 & 2 Rapids Are Okay Without a Guide

CLASS #3 RAPIDS:  Rivers with Class 3 waves are medium in difficulty. They are also the first real step in whitewater rafting. The rapids have obstacles like rocks, bridges, debris and there is a good chance you will get wet.

whitewater rafting_2CLASS #4 RAPIDS: Rapids in the Class 4 family we call turbulent. You’ll have a blast. Your ride will be challenging. And you will get wet.

CLASS #5 RAPIDS: Expert level rapids in the Class 5 family have obstructions. The rapids are violent and complex. They are risky with drops and dips. You will get wet on Class 5 rapids and probably a bruise or two. LOL.

CLASS #6 RAPIDS: WOWSER. These dynamic rapids are unpredictable, dangerous and you better know how to swim.

Guide Recommended for Class 3 Rapids and Above

Guides are professional rafters. They know how to handle the rafts. And they know how to rescue you if you topple out into the current.

Why Offer Whitewater Rafting Discounts?

whitewater rafting expeditionWhitewater Rafting companies and tours realize that you have a choice when it comes to your outdoor adventures. And they want to entice you to bring your family, friends, and employees to the river on your next outing.

Whitewater Rafting companies are businesses and to stay afloat they need customers. Offering insane discounts to you through Savvy Perks is a way for them to bring new business in the door.

How Much Does Whitewater Rafting Cost?

whitewater rafting_1According to Fitness Cost Helper, the average cost of whitewater rafting in the USA ranges. Self-guided trips start at $50 and go upwards of $200 a day per person depending on the river and launch fees.

Guided single-day trips cost $25-$115 per person, depending on location and season. For example, a four-hour trip with lunch (either a food truck or a barbecue) costs about $40 per adult or $35 per child.

Some trips include transportation to and from the base camp and the river and an optional meal.

Multi-Day Guided Whitewater Rafting Excursions

Multi Day whitewater rafting eventMulti-day guided whitewater rafting excursions cost $400-$1,400 for 3-4-day event. This depends on location, season and amenities.

For lower priced river trips, expect to bring your own camping gear and help prepare meals and set up camp.

Higher-priced camping trips often include amenities like bedding (sleeping bags, pillows, tarps, tents, camping chairs) and catered meals.

Why Does Whitewater Rafting Cost So Much?

whitewater rafting_6The river rental companies are businesses and they have expenses just like you.

They pay for the real estate of their station, river permits, insurance and launch fees. They’ve invested in rafts, paddles, life jackets, helmets, cameras and another river gear. They pay for advertising, website, web hosting, and internet access. They have the expenses of electricity, water, sewage, bathrooms, and often buses to get you to and from their location to the rapids.

This also means vehicle insurance, drivers, fuel, vehicle maintenance and property tax. If they offer camping, it also includes campsite real estate and camping permits. All this to help you create unforgettable memories of a lifetime.

Self-Guided Whitewater River Trip vs. Guided Tour

whitewater rafting_3The difference between a self-guided whitewater river trip and a guided tour is just as it sounds. Self-guided tours are where you rent the rafts, life jackets, helmets, and explore the river on your own.

The guided tour comes with a trained guide who knows where the best rapids are, what plants to stay away from so you don’t get poison ivy.

And if you get in a bind they know where to find help fast. If you ask just about anybody whether to do the guided tour – they all say, go with the guide.

Trained Guides Can Take the Hassle Out of Your Excursion

whitewater rafting_3Trained guides load the rafts and equipment and make sure the rafts are inflated to safety standards.

The guide will meet and greet their guests, brief them on what to expect and explain safety procedures.

They can also help you make sure that your life jacket fits and that the equipment you’ve rented is the right stuff.

The guide can also point you in the right direction for lodging, campgrounds or other nearby attractions.

Why Hire a Tour Guide for Your Whitewater Rafting Excursion?

Whitewater rafting guideTour guides choose to spend their summers on the river making sure that you are safe, and you have a spectacular time. They love the water and they know where the best rapids are. And if part of the river is shallow they know where and will steer you away from them.

A top-notch river guide is an entertainer. They are historians, and they know plants and wildlife. And while they navigate the rapids with you, they surprise and delight you with just the right amount of thrill. They are flexible, and they know how to read their guests, tailoring each experience to all ages, abilities, and backgrounds.

How Much Money to Whitewater Rafting Guides Make?

Not a lot. LOL. According to Salary.com, an average rafting guide makes about $30 per tour (for a 4-hour tour) plus tips.

Are You Supposed to Tip Your Tour Guide?

FAQ Young Woman Saves Money Hand in Pocketbook pulling out money

Yes. We all work for money – even if we are having fun. The whitewater rafting tour is the tour guides job. That’s how they make a living. Your clients don’t expect you to work for free – and it’s the same with a tour guide. They pay their bills with the money they earn from tips.

For them to earn tips, they are informational, fun, and entertaining. They are helpful and go out of their way to make sure your time together is spectacular.

How Much Should You Tip Your Tour Guide?

15% – to 20% of the price of your tour is a safe bet.

If you are a business owner paying for an employee day, 15% to 20% off the top of your excursion is a fair price to pay.

If you have a short ½ day trip and there are just a few of you, you can pay the tip on a per person basis which is usually around $10 per person.

And if you have exceptional service and your tour guide has created unforgettable memories – give them more.

How Do You Get Discounts from Savvy Perks for Whitewater Rafting?

Apps, Savvy PerksIt’s so easy to get your Savvy Perks whitewater rafting discounts from your GPS perks app.

 

From your smartphone click on the blue magnifying glass in the bottom right corner. This allows you to search for whitewater rafting centers, rapids, and river excursions. Click on the one you want to visit and then either choose to print the discount or use your mobile device to redeem your coupons. Coupons and discounts, you pull up today are usually good for 30 days out.

SUGGESTION: If you choose to use your phone which is always easier than printing a coupon, pull up the coupon while you are in wi-fi range. Snap a picture of the coupon just in case when you arrive at the river there is no cell service where you are.

Some rivers don’t have the best satellite range for cell phones. And you’ll be bummed if you don’t have access your Savvy Perks discount because you can’t pull it up on your phone.

Are Whitewater Rafting Deals and Savings Limited to One Person?

Whitewater Rafting - The Fine PrintWhitewater Rafting adventures are different. Every river adventure company chooses their perks, deals, and discounts. Some will give you percentage off the entire excursion while others give you a per person discount.

The key is to read the coupon details at each place before using. This way there are no surprises, and you’re not asking a new hire that is unfamiliar with how Savvy Perks works.

What Happens If an Adventure Center or Tour Guide Won’t Honor My Whitewater Rafting?

Leave a Review-Savvy PerksThe outdoor adventure company is paying to be part of the deals and perks discount network. This is an advertising cost for them. So, it is in their best interest to honor the coupons they pay for.

Just like eBay and Amazon, every coupon links to an online rating and review. In this case, it’s Yelp.

So, if you visit a whitewater rafting company and you have a terrible experience, (and I hope you don’t.) Or if they don’t honor your Savvy Perks deal, you can leave a rating and review right there on Yelp from the convenience of your smartphone. You don’t even have to look up the place on Yelp.

Whitewater Rafting as an Employee Day – Builds Teamwork

Whitewater rafting - builds teamworkIt’s proven time and again that employees work for and appreciate money as a bonus and incentive. But when asked, it’s the memories of adventure days or group outings they talk about. The employee days that include their family or co-workers ranked hirer on the value list than just money that pays the bills.

You can plan an adventure day on the river and include all your staff. Whitewater rafting is an excellent choice because it gets you away from your comfort zone and technology.

Employees end up chatting with each other, discussing issues, building comradery and that’s all before you hit the river.

Employee Days on the River – a Great PR Move

whitewater rafting selfiesOnce your team get their life jackets and helmets on that’s when they start snapping photos. They’re dying to share their adventure with friends and family on social media.

As they hit the rapids they’ll experience fear, courage, and teamwork. And before your ride down the river is over, your staff will have bonded, laughed their heads off, taken videos, and photos. Then they will brag all over social media what a great company they work for.

It’s also a good chance for you to get some great PR photos for your website.

“Ways we celebrate our employees.”

SUGGESTION: Create a Hashtag for your adventure day that includes your company name. Ask everybody to tag you in using the hashtag so they can share the photos. This keeps all photos and videos connected to the same searchable thread.

Outside the Box Whitewater Rafting – Gift Certificates

Bus Transportation, Savvy Perks, Benefits for Small BenefitsTransportation from the Airport to the Adventure Site

Depending on how you travel, you can also use your Savvy Perks discounts for rental cars, chartered buses, Uber and Lyft.

What Are the Restrictions of Hair Care Discounts?

Because salons are a service business the hairstylists only get paid when they work. Regardless of the insane discounts you get from Savvy Perks, please remember to always tip your stylist an appropriate amount. Twenty percent of the price of service is standard, but if the stylist does a superb job, more is always appreciated.

These restrictions aren’t posted anywhere and a stylist will never ask you for a tip. But if your looks have just been reinvented by a color technician with talent and imagination, don’t be an extreme cheapskate. It will make you look bad even if you’re beautiful.

Some gift cards are partner cards. This means that the parent company that owns five different restaurants will honor your gift card at any of the restaurants.

A Gift Certificate Is Often Issued by a Sole Location

Recently we had friends celebrating an anniversary. And since we were not there to celebrate we contacted their favorite restaurant. The restaurant doesn’t have gift cards. Oddly enough, they didn’t have gift certificates either. But they agreed to sell us one.

They let us pay via credit card and they gave us a confirmation number. This number they wrote on a post-it-note with the couple’s name and stuck at the cash register. LOL (I know, really old school, but hey.)

We made up a gift certificate for them in Canva and added their names and the confirmation number.

We received a thank you from them a few weeks later saying they loved the dinner and had no problems redeeming the gift certificate.

Tomato with question mark in center questioning restaurant dealsCan You Use Your Savvy Perks Discounts to Buy Restaurant Gift Cards?

This is a great question. Every eating establishment is different. Many chain restaurants have rules and regulations. They say you cannot use coupons or dining discounts from employee discount programs to buy gift cards.

Independently owned café and treats shops have their own rules as do groceries and markets and bakeries.

The Savvy Perks smartphone app has all company policies listed on every online coupon. This makes knowing what is and is not allowed easy. If there are any cheap food hacks restrictions it will be listed on the coupon for that restaurant.

How Can You Find Restaurant Deals?

Handman finds restaurant deals on Savvy PerksThe easiest, most convenient way I know is to have the deal you need when you’re ready to buy. The Savvy Perks (employee benefits for small business) app is on your smartphone. And it’s nationwide. And it represents 250,000 participating restaurants and retailers.

Because your smartphone has GPS, the Savvy Perks app can show you all the deals at all the places wherever you are.

The super cool thing about this is you can find tempting discounts on food. But you can also find rock-bottom prices on a bunch of nearby stores as well. So, if you’re out shopping, you can use your Savvy Perks for shoes, clothes, electronics, household and gardening goods. And then when you’re ready to kick back and take a break, you can get dinner and dessert with your perks too.

What if I Can’t Find My Favorite Restaurant on Savvy Perks?

Add a Listing for Restaurant DealsAs a registered user of Savvy Perks, you can recommend any restaurant, coffee shop, store, retailer or service you like. If they take your money in exchange for a product or service you can request them.

How Do You Redeem Restaurant Deals through Savvy Perks?

Restaurant Deals - Savvy Perks AppSo, you’re driving in your car and you’re hungry. And you open your Savvy Perks smartphone app.

  • You choose among your favorite cuisines.

American, Asian, Italian, or Cajun food. Who knows, maybe it’s BBQ, French, Middle Eastern, or Pizza. Or it might be Latin America, Japanese, Mexican, Sandwiches, or Steakhouses.

Maybe you love Sushi, Thai, Vegetarian, Seafood Burgers, and Chinese. Spaghetti, takeout, Tex-Mex, fast food, bakery, and Hibachi grill, are also options but you get the idea.

  • Savvy Perks will return a selection of choices for you with the restaurant deals.

Choose Your Flavor – Choose Your Deals

  • Young African American woman smiling looking at restaurant deals on phoneYou pick the restaurant and you go inside and order your meal.
  • When it’s time for you to pay, you will have a coupon code, promo code or scannable coupon.

The restaurant uses that when they ring up your check. The total amount you pay has your Savvy Perks discount magically removed from your bill.

It’s exhilarating and addicting to save on everything like this.

Are Restaurant Deals Limited to One Person?

Table of Friends sharing Restaurant DealsRestaurant deals are different. Some are “buy one get one free” offers. Some are 15% off the total amount. So, if you have four people eating, you can ask, “Can we do the buy one get one free twice?” Some restaurants say no, some say yes.

And if you’re paying for the meal 15% off the entire check would include the drinks, food, and deserts for the entire table. Unless otherwise noted.

The key is to read the coupon details at each place before using. This way there are no surprises, and you’re not asking a new hire that is unfamiliar with how Savvy Perks works.

What Happens If a Restaurant Won’t Honor Restaurant Deals?

Yelp Review from Savvy Perks about Restaurant DealsThe restaurant is paying to be part of the employee discount network. This is an advertising cost for them. So, it is in their best interest to honor the coupons they pay for.

Just like eBay and Amazon, every coupon links to an online rating and review. In this case, it’s Yelp.

So, if you go to a restaurant and you have a bad experience, (and I hope you don’t.) Or if they don’t honor your Savvy Perks deal, you can leave a rating and review right there on Yelp from the convenience of your smartphone. You don’t even have to look up the place on Yelp. Savvy Perks does it for you.

We’re a strong believer in ratings and reviews. And we WANT you to have a sensational experience, and we want to read all about it on Yelp. Just don’t forget to include the hashtag #SavvyPerks.

Outside the Box Restaurant Deals

Kids Eat Free Restaurant DealsKids eat free restaurant deals are popular with parents. Sometimes nights of the week will be a “kids night” which encourage families to visit places they don’t normally go.

Breakfast specials, lunch specials, and dinner specials – Woohoo! These are all ways restaurants can increase revenue by offering discounts during slow times of the day.

Managers specials are a good way to sell food that is not selling – and it’s got to go before it goes bad, or the next shipment arrives. These are usually “flash sales” and sometimes offered along with your regular Savvy Perks discounts.

So, if a dish is $5 off, and your Savvy Perks discount is “buy one get one free”, you may still get the free item plus $5 off your meal.

We call this “twice delight.” Savvy Perks delights us with a deal, and the restaurant delights us with theirs and the restaurant honors both – hence “twice delight.”

What Are the Restrictions on Restaurant Deals?

restaurant deals on bar foodA tavern may offer a restaurant deal or bonus that does not include alcoholic beverages. They assume since you’re going to lounge at the bars you will be drinking anyway. So, they won’t give you a tantalizing saving for drinks. They’ve already got your money there. But they want to increase your tab by encouraging you to buy intoxicating buffalo wild wings, spicy shrimp or fried egg rolls.

You Don’t Have to Be an Extreme Cheapskate Eating Out
