2019 Raft Guide School

2019 Guide School Dates Announced!

We will be holding our annual 6 day Guide training starting Monday April 29 running thru Sunday May 5, 2019!

With the tremendous amount of snowpack in the mountains…and so much coming in the next week, we are so excited for the upcoming rafting season. Our spring river trips like the North Yuba, North Fork American, Kaweah and East Fork Carson rivers have promising outlooks for extended seasons! We have scheduled this years guide school so that we can take advantage of the numerous rivers we run in California!

Our guide school is open to individuals who would like to learn the skills to guide commercial rafting trips, as well as private boaters looking for the same skills.
