We are a whitewater rafting club based in Spokane, Washington. Our goal is to promote whitewater boating, safety, and conservation. We’ve been around since 1989 – now over 30 GREAT years and counting – helping educate and unite river runners across the Inland Northwest.
Northwest Whitewater Association members are self-outfitted, private recreational boaters that share a common interest in floating the great rivers of the Pacific Northwest — and beyond. Membership is a mere $25 per year for families and kids 18 & under gets you involved in floats and events on local rivers, prizes and more.
Our membership has knowledge of whitewater boating and rivers that is among the BEST you’ll find — ANYWHERE. Name a river and likely someone’s “been there, done that” right side up or upside down and have some souvenir to display wen telling their story. Our people probably know when to go — and more importantly when NOT to.
We know shuttles, the good and bad and the UGLY!.
Want to learn how to run an oar-powered boat? You’ve found the people to help just tagging along with one of our many experienced river pilots.
