About this trip

Learn how to guide a paddle boat on class III-IV whitewater with hands on experience and a lot of FUN!  Over the course of our guide training, you will have the opportunity to practice rafting skills such as navigating a paddle boat through rapids, catching eddys, surfing waves, throw rope drills, and learning to right a flipped boat.  


The main focus of this training is to educate each person on what the guide expectations are for Nate's Rogue Adventures and develop the skills to achieve them.  Be prepared to learn...a LOT and be physically challenged.  If you have previous guide experience, joining our training is essential to work for Nate's Rogue Adventures.

My wife and I had an unforgettable adventure on the Rogue River with Nate, Abbie and their highly experienced team. Everything about this excursion was first class from beginning to end. And we always felt safe. I highly recommend taking this trip with Nate and his amazing crew! And by the way, we are in our 70's. Gary and Mary Hill
