Watersports in Sandpoint, Idaho

For the whitewater enthusiasts, there are numerous rivers and streams to get your heart pounding. The Moyie River, famous for its Class 5 rapids is only an hour away. The Selway and Lochsa are within easy driving distance and offer even the most seasoned kayak enthusiast a real test. The Pack River and Priest River also provide kayakers plenty of great water to play on. When visiting Sandpoint, make it a point to rent a boat and discover why so many people have fallen in love with the area. If you're uncomfortable navigating on unknown waters, take a fishing charter or a scenic cruise. If you do decide to take a fishing charter, make sure you get plenty of rest prior to departure, as this lake offers trophy rainbow trout that will challenge your skill as well as your endurance.
