Each of our wine tasting trips includes whitewater rafting on either day one or day two and wine tasting the day we are off the river. That choice is dependent upon numerous factors including weather, permit restrictions, size of trips, etc. If you have a preference please let us know in advance and we will always attempt to accommodate your wishes. Please note that our meeting time is 9:00 on day one for either option and you can, if you choose, spend the evening prior and enjoy breakfast with us for a nominal fee.
On the morning of your day on the river we’ll meet for a river orientation and safety talk. Then you and your other crewmembers will board your boat at our campsite put-in and practice basic paddle strokes with your guide before setting out to raft the lower thirteen miles of the river known as the “Gorge Run”.
Before lunch, the river winds through rolling hills and the rapids are fun and easy – a good chance to warm up and get to know your crew and guide. We’ll stop midday for a delicious deli-style lunch on the riverbank, and then it’s off to the bigger rapids in the lower section of the Gorge run. By the end of the day, you’ll have rafted some of the greatest rapids in California.
We’ll drive back to camp where you can shower, relax, and play while your guides prepare dinner. After dinner we’ll gather around a roaring campfire to end the evening in the glow of a day well spent.
