TUOLUMNE RIVER – 3 DAY | WHITE WATER RAFTING CALIFORNIA

Experience the thrill of rafting the great rapids of the Tuolumne River with time to enjoy the serenity of a wilderness canyon. We meet early on the first morning of your trip at our outfitter’s meeting place on Highway 120 near Groveland, west of Yosemite Nat’l Park. The drive to our put-in takes us deep into the canyon on narrow back roads–an exciting adventure in itself! We meet our guides and boats, don wetsuits if needed for protection and comfort, stow our gear in waterproof dry bags in the oar boat, and head for the river in paddle boats–usually six paddlers plus your guide to a boat. We raft the upper section of the Main Tuolumne, scout and run Clavey Falls, and make camp below the falls for a well deserved evening on the river where we rest and play while our guides prepare a wonderful dinner and campfire.

On second morning we usually have time for a hike up Clavey Creek before setting out on the day’s exciting Class IV+ run, stopping for lunch on the river bank. We take out at Ward’s Ferry in mid afternoon and shuttle back to La Casa Loma and your cars by around 5:00 PM.

  • Exciting Whitewater: perfect for the experienced paddler, as well as the very adventuresome first-time rafter
  • The famous Class V Tunnel Chute: an exciting adrenaline rush whitewater ride
  • Legendary Gold Rush River with visible mining sites along the riverbank
  • A delightful riverside lunch as we relax and enjoy the quiet of the day
  • Great guides: skilled and ready to provide a safe and fun outdoor adventure
  • Exciting wildlife and spectacular mountain vistas to savor and enjoy
  • A full day of fun, relaxation and excitement in a beautiful river canyon
TRIP ITENERARY

Get ready for a great day on the river! We board our river van promptly at 8:00 a.m. and head for the river about 45 minutes away. En route your guides will present orientation and safety information. At the river launching site you will receive your river gear including a paddle, a helmet, and a life jacket. We will launch our boats, practice paddling skills with our guides, and head for the excitement and fun of the Tunnel Chute and Kanaka Falls!

We stop mid-day for a delicious lunch along the river where we have time to enjoy the peacefulness of the canyon and its wildlife before paddling through more fun rapids like Chunder and Parallel Parking to finish the day’s run. Our shuttle vehicle will greet us at take-out with cold beverages for the ride back to your car.

You’re ready to head home by around 4:00-5:00 p.m., relaxed and full of memories from a great river trip experience!
