    The float trip section of the Wenatchee River is a perfect trip for a fun, family experience without the worries of crazy whitewater. Perfect for kids 5 and older, the lower section has many spots to swim, a beautiful view of the valley, and some really cool history of the area. On this trip, you will float through apple, pear, and cherry orchards as you meander your way into the estuary where the Wenatchee and the Columbia rivers come together.

This section is usually warm, so don’t forget to bring your sun tan lotion and your sunglasses.
