Itinerary

Get ready for a great day on the river!  The shuttle departs from our private camp to the Goodyears Bar put-in a few miles up-stream. En route your guides will present orientation and safety information. At put-in you will receive your river gear including a paddle, a helmet, a PFD and a wetsuit. We will launch our boats, practice paddling skills with our guides and head for the whitewater excitement.

There are several runs on the Yuba River like the Maytag run (Goodyears Bar Run), Moss Canyon, Rossoco Ravine, and Bullards Bar. For safety reasons the daily flows will dictate which one we raft on.

Our shuttle vehicle will greet us at take-out with beverages for the very short ride back to your car.

You’ll head for home happy, relaxed and full of memories from a great river trip experience! Or set-up camp for the night at our private camp!
