Early booking via email. Very flexible in terms of giving us credit for glasses and shorts required for the trip. Staff and instructor were very patient and friendly. Next year is predicted to yield a lot of water so go then.

I am a middle aged woman who had never rafted before. I was a bit apprehensive but the entire staff worked in a friendly manner to calm my fears.

Whitewater river rafting on the upper Kern in the Southern Sierra. Choose your level - having just done their Class IV water, I think I'm more of a III gal myself, but this was definitely a thrill. You are well prepared and supervised by your guides: lifevests and helmets and what to do when. We took a practice run in... More
