Class I float in/around Seattle?

Hi guys,

I will apologize immediate for this very vague question as I am very new to this.

I would like to learn how to raft in order to do some extended float trips.

I live in Seattle and would like to do a 2 day trip some class I water.

I just wanted to know if anybody has done this type of trip before and if you wouldnt mind sharing some info?

From what Ive been reading it seems most people prefer the higher class white water, but I need to start somewhere .

I dont mind driving a few hours so any suggestions would be great.

This is the Washington Recreational River Runners (WRRR) forum.

wrrr : Washington Recreational River Runners

They are a great group of people, very inclusive to people just getting into it, all the way up to Class V boaters. They are a "club" that gets together and boats, has events and meetings. Very nice folks, rafters and catboaters mostly. If you post on that group I'm sure you'll get some good ideas. There's also the NWA group on Yahoo, but they are over in Spokane.

Checkout great for river levels, classifications, pictures...etc.

Skagit river class II from Coppercreek to Rockport or has a Great Guide School and/or begining boater lessons. Get info on reading whitewater, boat handling and little Swiftwater Rescue skills. You learn on the Skykomish and Wenatchee. They'll take you at your pace and you'll be a top first year boater. They're a great group and love to have families come out and learn. Guide School Starts Mid March. I would also recommend taking a full Swiftwater Rescue Course. I've used it on many occasions throughout my time on the river.
