About Us

About Us

We love to raft. We love to share this experience with our guests. And it shows. Winding Waters River Expeditions is a family owned and operated whitewater rafting outfitter based in Joseph, Oregon. As a company started by river guides in 2004, we love what we do and know what it takes to provide a quality rafting experience. Our guests return year after year due to our commitment to customer service, attention to detail, and our outstanding guide crew. “I love that land of winding waters more than all the rest of the world.” - Young Chief Joseph, Wallowa Band of the Nez Perce Tribe (referencing the watersheds of the rivers we float)

Meet the Family

This turns out to be more of a love story than a business profile. Talking with the owners of Winding Waters River Expeditions, you often hear that they love what they’re doing. Love where they do it. Love being on the river. Love sharing that experience. Love, love, love. And the thing is, it’s genuine.

Our community of guides is the heart and soul of our company, along with the brains and brawn! Life around our Boathouse and on the river is a joy with our cast of characters. It’s this genuine, infectious enjoyment of river life that has brought many Winding Waters clients back year after year.
