101 Places to Go Baja Sea of Cortez Bioluminesence

Backpacker Magazine's "Hiker's Life List" #92: See the Ocean Catch Fire

Backpacker Magazine Hiker's Life List | December, 2014

"Liquid Lightning" - that's how Backpacker Magazine's Editor in Chief, Dennis Lewon, describes his moonless night of kayaking off of Baja's Isla Carmen in the Sea of Cortez. Fortunate to have been there when bioluminescent plankton were lighting up the warm waters, Lewon lists the many reasons that "sea kayaking belongs on anyone's life list - rugged islands, soft beaches, whales, turquoise water - but going during a peak bioluminescent plankton bloom elevates the experience to the top of the list."

ROW Adventures Family Magic Rafting Trip in the Salmon River Canyons

Idaho's Whitewater Family Adventure

Jewish Independent | September, 2014

There’s nothing quite as thrilling as a whitewater rafting adventure, especially when you can do it with your kids. For safety reasons, most rafting companies restrict the participation of kids 12 and under for anything other than a bland float downstream. With one exception, that is: ROW Adventures’ five-day Family Magic rafting excursion on the lower fork of Idaho’s Salmon River. Here, the rapids are safe enough for a 5-year-old and just sufficiently exciting to get parents’ adrenaline pumping, without ever feeling dangerous. Add a “River Jester” to the mix, a staff member whose job it is to keep kids busy, happy and engaged, and you have the recipe for a perfect family vacation.

Best Places to See Baby Animals

Travel + Leisure | July, 2014

A naturalist’s paradise, the Galápagos Islands teem with new and unusual life. The world’s smallest penguins, kissing albatrosses, humongous tortoises, lizard-grooming crabs, spiky-Mohawk-sporting iguanas, and turquoise-footed boobies are just a few of the wonderfully weird animals you might encounter. April to June is prime baby-animal-spotting season for most species. Camp out on the islands as part of a ROW Adventures kayaking tour, or set sail on a yacht cruise offered by trusted outfitters like Ecoventura or Quasar Expeditions.

Rolling on the River: A Gluten-Free Whitewater Trip Through Idaho

Gluten-Free Living Magazine | May, 2014

"This is the best of two worlds, where a full day of activities ends with an epic dinner prepared by someone else. Kitchen duty? Not here. Breakfasts are as abundant as lunch. Both gluten-free and regular pancakes and waffles are made to order on separate grills with separate utensils. Eggs, bacon, cold cereal, including a well-marked gluten-free variety, and fresh fruit are ready by the time we've had the morning's first cup of coffee..."

“You don’t have to be an athlete, you don’t have to be in top condition, you don’t have to go jogging three miles a day,” said Peter Grubb, president of Idaho-based ROW Adventures (www.rowadventures.com). “We have, I would say, something to cater to just about any sort of physical activity that people want.”
