Getting on the River with a River Shuttle

River Rafting Idaho

The summer means a lot of things for those who are familiar with Idaho summers. It can mean fun days in the sun, hiking and climbing some beautiful mountains, and of course, catching some great white water. At Caldwell Transportation, we’re big fans of whitewater and whitewater rafting. That’s why we run a river shuttle up to Stanley for those rafting enthusiasts looking for some of the best whitewater in the country.

The Benefits of Renting a Charter Bus

There are many reasons why you would need to rent a charter bus for your next event or outing. There is just an added convenience of having your transport needs taken care of for you, especially if the trip is planned for somewhere you don’t want to drive. Nothing beats having a professional driver at the helm while you and the group are free to enjoy the ride. Charter buses are a flexible way to plan your next outing and can take the hassle out of planning.

Summer fun in Idaho can mean a lot of different things, but it almost certainly means spending some time in the water. If you’re a water lover, then you certainly need to check out some of the different rivers that Idaho has to offer, especially the white water. Idaho is home to some of the best whitewater in the world, with many people travelling to our state during the summer for their chance to hit some awesome rapids. At Caldwell Transportation, we’re happy to be providing river shuttles up to Stanley and other areas so folks can enjoy themselves.

Knowing the Difference Between River Rapid Classes

River Rapids classes

Whether you’re an experienced river raft guide or a beginner when it comes to rafting rapids, you still need to follow the same law when it comes to safety and rapid classification. Because there are so many different types of rapids with different sizes and degrees of difficulty, there needs to be a way to classify them with a ranking system. Without this, people wouldn’t know just how tough a rapid is and be ill prepared for the consequences.

Staying Safe on the Rivers this Summer

Caldwell Transportation is happy to have been operating river shuttles for quite some time now, having shuttled thousands of folks back and forth between the Treasure Valley and some of the best river destinations in the state. Because we are fans of the great outdoors, we love to show first-timers and veterans alike just how awesome summers in Idaho can be. Our river shuttles are responsible for taking our clients to the river and keeping them safe on the road, but unfortunately we can’t be responsible for keeping them safe on the river.

River Season Means River Shuttles

With rafting season making its appearance this summer, there will no doubt be enthusiastic adventure seekers making their way to all the whitewater fun Idaho has to offer this summer. But what do you need to know before going out into the wild? We’re assuming that you have a passion for the outdoors and rafting, but other than that, you’ll need to know your skill level and level of comfort with certain rapids and classes of rapids. If you have this figured out, you may also need to know how to get there.

If there is one thing that you can consider a good time, that’s taking a trip across the Idaho/Nevada border and staying in Jackpot for some Vegas-style fun. While it’s nowhere near the size of Las Vegas, Jackpot still offers almost everything you can find in its famous counterpart. The advantage of Jackpot is the fact that it’s closer to Idaho, it’s not as crowded, and way more affordable.
