Rafting Season is Here!

We love rafting!

The time has finally arrived where we are running rafting trips again!

We have been tirelessly working on getting approval to resume operations on several of our whitewater rafting trips, and we are now operating on almost all our California rafting trips!

We currently have 1/2 day and 1 day trip options available, and there is overnight camping at most locations including the South Fork American River in Lotus, CA, the Truckee River RV Park in Truckee, CA (North Lake Tahoe/Reno), and the Trinity River in Big Bar, CA.

Several multi-day trips with meals and camping included are scheduled to begin on Thursday June 25th and we plan on full offering come July 1st.

Our amazing staff is so excited to be on the rivers again. We had some fun these last couple of weeks training new guides and running some epic sections of California Whitewater like the Class V Burnt Ranch Gorge and Class 2-3+ Pigeon Point runs on the Trinity River near Big Bar, CA.

Things have a changed a little due to the COVID-19 pandemic, you can learn more details in our Amended Operations Plan (updated regularly).
