Welcome To The Northwest Whitewater Association!

Welcome to the website of the Northwest Whitewater Association. We are a whitewater rafting club based in Spokane, Washington. Our goal is to promote whitewater boating, safety, and conservation. We've been around since 1989 – now CELEBRATING 30 GREAT years and counting – helping unite river runners across the region.

Northwest Whitewater Association members are private recreational boaters that share a common interest in floating the great rivers of the Inland Pacific Northwest. JOIN US! Your 25 bucks annual dues for families and kids 18 & under gets you involved in floats and events on and for the local rivers, prizes and entertainment galore, and of course our entertaining and informative newsletter, The NWA News!
