White Water Rafting is Not an Amusement Park Ride

 If you’re not used to adventure sports in the outdoors, the idea of river rafting in California may make you a little nervous. White water rafting may seem like an incredibly dangerous pursuit, especially if you’ve never been on a rafting trip.

It’s true that white water rafting on the American River is not an amusement park ride. You need to be aware that there is an element of risk any time you’re in the wilderness.

There are different levels of trips available for rafters on the American River. Adventure Connection offers a trip that is suitable for beginners, but exciting enough for advanced paddlers. On the South Fork of the American River, this trip features Class I, Class II and Class III rapids. This trip will give you the thrill of racing through white water, without needing to have the high skill level to negotiate more advanced rapids.

And all trips are led by experienced river guides. The outfitters at Adventure Connection have been rafting the American River for over 25 years, and know the river thoroughly. They will keep you safe while you have an exciting time. In addition, all trips require that you wear the proper safety equipment and flotation devices, as well as go through a safety orientation before your trip begins.

River rafting on the American River is not the same as riding a roller coaster at an amusement park. However, Adventure Connection has taken care to make it as safe as they can, and you will have an excellent time.
