Welcome to Gary & Barbs Wapiti World,

We are the longest standing original dory, drift boat, and raft owner/outfitter/guide service in Riggins. Our specialty is small group whitewater, fishing, and chukar hunts with our Weimaraner, Willow.  While Barb does behind the scene work to help me on the water, I continue diving more intimately into the river canyon to ever broaden my knowledge for better informing guests about our area.  With over 40 Plus years of experience , many stories were generated and led to material enough to write two books about the Lower Salmon.  But, it is you, our potential guest, that is the reason for enabling us to continue to help you build your own story, never to be forgotten, and often life changing. It is true: "you have to know and the more you know the farther you go." Come with us and be the star of your own story.
