The first 2 miles of this paddle is an excellent stretch of moving water for novices to learn whitewater basics: eddy turns, ferrying, bracing, surfing. A few class 1 to 2- rapids provide practice for contending with waves. Difficulty of the water depends on the water level (easier at medium to low water levels). The latter portion of this paddle provides a quiet, pleasant float through the delta and sloughs at the confluence of the Wenatchee and Columbia rivers. The wildlife and bird life is thick here and you’ll feel surprisingly removed from Wenatchee even though you are, for all intents and purposes within the city limits.
