I’ve been coming up to the McKenzie River for over 50 years, and for probably 30 of those years I have had the great pleasure to whitewater raft down the McKenzie River, the last 15 years with A Helfrich Outfitter. It started after college with college friends, then to trips with childhood adult friends, family reunions, then moved to trips with my husband and our young family with the grandparents joining us. Then to the young ones having grown up and college graduation floats on the river with Jonnie and her outstanding crew. You might ask what keeps us coming back to A Helfrich Outfitter. Besides the beauty of the McKenzie River, planning a trip for one boat full of eager rafters or a whole fleet of boats is a pleasure with Jonnie. She is flexible and easy to work with and very accommodating to her clients. True professional. Forever and always, safety comes first to Jonnie and her crew. The safety talk is serious and very informative. I have always felt very comfortable in the boats. The great local knowledge and the folklore is always of interest to all ages of rafters. Oh, I almost forgot to mention the water fights, a classic on the McKenzie. Guaranteed a great time whitewater rafting with A Helfrich Outfitter.
