GRANTS PASS — Alternative Whitewater Adventures will reopen its doors Friday after a 12-year absence.
The company will rent rafts, one- or two-seat inflatable kayaks called IK's, stand-up paddleboards, and The Helix, an inflatable device that looks like some kind of space pod, with inflatable bars that encircle riders. It also will rent 14-by-14-foot inflatable pools that contain an orb-like vessel people can float in.
AWA provides shuttle service for all rentals leaving its office at 839 Rogue River Highway. The company has added GPS and GeoFencing technology to its equipment, allowing it to track customer progress in real time.
Alternative Whitewater Adventures, headed by President Dan Isaacson, can be reached at 847-471-7761. The website is www.grantspassrafting.com.
Hours of operation are 9:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday, and 9:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. Friday through Sunday. The operation is closed Mondays.
