We Plan, You Raft.
We specialize in planning overnight rafting trips on rivers of the American West.
During peak season, most overnight rafting trips in the West require a limited-quota permit. Not to worry, we’re here to help you get on the river! Let us navigate the process and help you find that special permit.
ITINERARY AND PLANNING
An overnight rafting adventure begins long before you arrive at the put-in. Have us spend the time researching access, camps, rapids, layovers, hikes, and sights to see. Whether you have a 3-night float down the Rogue or a 24-night Grand Canyon expedition, lean on us for your itinerary and associated logistics.
There are a multitude of ways to get downriver. Choosing the right gear is essential for a safe and comfortable river adventure. Whether you’re building your first boat or upgrading to the latest gear, we sift through the choices and make tailored recommendations.

It’s true, access to most of the great rafting adventures in the West are locked behind a limited-quota permit season. Figuring out how to navigate the system can be daunting. We’re here to help you join the small number of rafters that consistently find themselves on high demand, limited quota rivers!
Our realistic approach to river permit applications has seen our clients and us find many a coveted permit. Let us provide the one-on-one consulting that will help you find the golden ticket that gets you on the river.

You open the email and see you’ve won the permit. Congrats! But now it’s time to start thinking about how to make it happen. Skip the tedious planning process by having us spend the time researching access, camps, rapids, layovers, hikes, and points of interest. When you push off from shore and set your watches to river-time, you’ll do so knowing you’re floating with a solid plan.
Whether you’re bouncing down a low-water Selway or running the Green Room on the Snake, you can rely on us for your itinerary and associated logistics.

What do our clients have to say about how DIY Adventure Consultants helped them succeed?
I’ve been interested in hunting a new area NE Oregon for quite some time but didn’t have the time to do the research or plan out a trip. I reached out to Mike for help and he was great to work with. Mike asked all the right questions on our initial consult, and during planning was very communicative, organized, and detailed in his research. He identified options for dates, locations, campsites, and gear recommendations. We had a successful trip that went off without a hitch. I plan to use his services again for a future hunt. Overall, a great experience!
We love to raft but working full time we just don’t have time to invest in trip planning. Mike was amazing! He arranged all the logistics: great camping recommendations, awesome food suggestions, and created an all-around great experience. It was exactly what we were looking for!
I drew a coveted Barbary sheep tag in New Mexico but work/family prevented me from having any time to scout ahead of my hunt. I was expecting to hunt an exotic animal in an exotic land and just hope for the best. Fortunately, I found Mike a month before the hunt and he quickly laid the groundwork for a successful hunt. He outlined several promising locations and base camps; all without ever having been in that area himself. Long story short: we were into sheep most days and I ended up harvesting a great ram!
