The Employee Experience

ROW Adventures works hard to create an inclusive, healthy, and supportive environment where everyone on our team is treated with respect. Our team is our most valuable asset and our success is the direct result of our outstanding, quality-driven Team Members who enjoy working and playing together. We enjoy a high return rate among our staff, yet still, hire many new people each year.

When applying for a position with us, know that we demand a lot from our staff because we provide a level of service that is well above the standard in the rafting, adventure travel, and outdoor resort arena. We look for people seeking to set a high watermark in their personal and professional lives.

Ideal Candidate

If you are a friendly, self-starting, energetic, creative and hardworking person with a love for people and life, and are interested in a long-term relationship with ROW we want to hear from you!

Room and Board

Our rafting outposts offer the ability to camp on property with access to communal facilities like kitchens and a shower/bathroom. Lunch is included during any day trips and all meals are included on our multi-day expeditions. 

Our administrative offices are in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho.  The main whitewater rafting warehouse for our trips on the Snake and Salmon rivers is in Clarkston, Washington. We have outposts at most of the rivers we run including in Southern Oregon near the Rogue River, Maupin, Oregon on the Deschutes River, and Salmon, Idaho for our Middle Fork of the Salmon Operations. 

Employee Perks

Besides doing what you love in some of the most remote places in Idaho, we offer the following with all jobs:

  • competitive pay and benefits
  • housing or camping at all outposts
  • free trips
  • training opportunities in many different areas
  • numerous leadership opportunities
  • numerous deals and discounts on a variety of outdoor gear brands

For Fun

The job itself is of course the best part. But the time off to explore the local rivers, creeks, and mountains of Idaho and Oregon either on your own, with co-workers, and even on company sponsored trips.

Our outdoor adventure season starts in late April or early May and continues through mid-to-late September.
