Kaweah RIVER – 2 – DAY


Our two-day trips are on Saturdays and Sundays, meeting at 8:30 AM. After check-in we’ll take a short drive to the put-in where you will receive a safety orientation and paddling instruction by your guides. The stretch of river we do on the two-day trip is very exciting with many class IV and V rapids including “Suicide Falls” and “The Flood”. After a picnic lunch on the riverbank we’ll get back into our boats and tackle some of the biggest rapids on the river like “Upper and Lower Slickies” and “Holiday Hole”. Our take-out is at Lake Kaweah – just a short bus ride back to your vehicles. We’re usually off the water and back at our meeting site by 3 to 4 PM.
