Our number one concern is your safety! All HCE river guides hold a certificate as Whitewater Rescue or Swift-water Technicians,
are certified in CPR, Advanced First Aid and trained in a variety of
river rescue techniques. This is an exceptional standard of training,
met by 1%-5% of outfitters. No matter what type of adventure you may be
involved with at HCE, we will provide you with the finest equipment
available. Our boats are high-end self-bailers made locally, right here
in the Northwest. Every boat is fully equipped with rescue gear and First Aid kits. All of our trips will begin with a complete safety orientation.
When choosing a river company for your next adventure ask about the training their guides receive (all of the guides, not just the "lead guides")!
