We are a saftey forward no trace outfitter.
Why we are different.
At Moose Knee Rafting we are not just a rafting outfitter. We concentrate on interactive guided rafting trips on class 1-3 rivers.
We really don't have a comparison to other outfitters because we are the only class 1-3 mobile outfitter.
What this means to you as someone who needs information and guidance. Your trip starts with the planning of your trip by placing you in the correct environment. We are mobile so we have a wide choice of rivers throughout Wisconsin that have different qualities that can match your groups skill.
Your group is also taken into consideration because if someone in your group is uncomfortable or nervous it affects your experience.
We rather address the entire group as a team to gain confidence as a team from the planning to the exit at the river take out.
Your group meets at the put in for check in and the given about an hour safety speech and equipment familiarization. Your group has a team leader then verifies we have gone over everything we promised we would cover.
The guiding on the river is not just about getting you down the river safely, it will grow into an interactive experience of conversation, explanation of our growth as an outfitter, maybe an example intro into other watersports activities and most importantly getting to know what you want out of this experience, so you leave feeling you have tools to try higher class rapids in the future. We are the stepping stone to the adrenaline class rivers other outfitters can offer that we can't and we will gladly refer them to you before, during or after your trip. We are about your groups beginning and future skills to use to grow your passion of the outdoors like us.
