Swirley Canyon
Half Day

The Swirley Canyon Half Day Float on the South Fork Payette River takes you from Danskin to
Alder Creek.

This 8-mile section of the South Fork is a unique place, rich in history, with 150 ft. sheer rock walls and an abundance of hot springs. Its name is derived from the nature of the water as tight turns in the river channel create fascinating whirlpools and eddy lines. The feeling is one of seclusion in a place of extreme natural beauty, especially in the evenings!

“Asked to make a reservation for a full day trip down the canyon one day in advance for three guests. The lady who seems to run the front office managed to fit us in; she was excellent to work with, both over the phone and in person. The float itself was great. The guides were professional, kept safety as a priority and had fun personalities that added to our overall impression of the trip. Strongly recommend this company for anyone seeking an adventure that feels unique to you and not a highly polished "tourist" experience.”

Kayla Schmid

“We had a great experience on the half day "Staircase" trip. Ryan was a terrific guide as was Noah in the second boat. Lots of humor, fun and thrills, while professional and safety first. My husband and I were impressed. We'd love to come back and do the full day Canyon trip. Thanks!”

Ann Schutt

“We had 29 members of our family take a trip with IWU down the Cabarton stretch as one of the activities for our family reunion. There were people from 10 years old to 76 and everyone had a great time and couldn't wait to tell those who didn't go what they missed. They mentioned that they can't wait for the reunion to be in Idaho again. It was definitely the highlight of the weekend. Highly recommend IWU!!”

Randy Rouse

“Booked a half day trip on the Main three days in advance over the phone. We arrived to our appointment 25 minutes late (not recommended) but they still let us float. The staff were all very pleasant and family-oriented. Shane was a great raft guide and made sure we were having enough fun on the trip. Would definitely raft with this company again!"

Heidy Guevara

“Absolutely awesome trip. Ryan was a great guide. Exciting yet never felt unsafe. Everything on the river was well worth it. We are going to do a full day trip next time.”
