Nervous About White Water Rafting?

 White water rafting in California is one of the most exciting trips you can make in the state. If you go online and watch video of people as their raft splashes through rapids, you will see the excitement and delight on their faces. But if you’re not used to high-intensity pursuits, you may be nervous about the idea of a white water rafting trip. Don’t be! Rafting on the American River with Adventure Connection is one of the most adventurous, exhilarating vacations you can ever experience, but it’s also one of the safest.

The experienced river guides at Adventure Connection have been whitewater rafting these rivers for over 25 years. They know every bend in the river and always put your safety first. Each trip begins with an orientation about the river and what to expect, as well as a talk about safety. They also take the time to get everyone used to the rafts by paddling in still water before heading down the river.

Many of the white water trips on the American River are made up of Class III rapids. This means that they are suitable for beginning paddlers. People of all skill levels will enjoy those trips. For the more technical whitewater rafting trips, Adventure Connection makes sure your skill level matches up to the trip before you put into the river. You don’t have to worry about going on a trip that you won’t be able to handle.

Now is a great time to make a reservation for a California white water rafting trip! Contact Adventure Connection to book your trip today.
