AO made for a great beginner rafting experience. We attended the all day South Fork "Lower Gorge" trip. Weather was a wonder 90+ degrees on this Saturday in October. AO had 3 rafts with about 8-6 people each. I forgot the name of our guide but I think it was Joe. He was the lead, more experienced guide over the... More

This was our second time rafting and camping with these guys at Tuolumne River near Yosemite(the first time was at American River middle fork) and we all had a grand 'ol time. It was the 3rd or 4th time rafting for all of us so we weren't exactly new to this activity but also not experienced white water rafters by... More

There may be less expensive rafting options, but AO is the best! I have been on Cherry Creek (class V) and the one-day Tuolumne (Class IV) with them and had a great experience both times. I'd suggest asking for Noah to be your guide, he is outstanding! Huge difference between the two rivers, so if you are experienced and looking... More

We traveled from London with 2 sons 13 and 16 that had never been rafting before and this trip gave them an exciting 2 days that they really loved. Setting up this trip, we looked at over 10 different companies, and chose All Outdoors. I am really glad we did. I like to support the little guy most of the... More

Just came back from a trip on the Middle Fork. We had a group of 8 people, all adults in 20-30's and 2 females. Our group had to be split up 4 and 4 since only 6 are in a boat but we knew that ahead of time already. We were all first timers and I feel this is the... More

Great rafting company. Went on Tuolomne. Wasn't very "rapid" for me. Class 4, but I was expecting little more intensity and more class 4 rapids. Of then 20 or rapids, only about 5 of them were class 4. But it's great for a family trip. Next time I will do Cherry River

My 14-year-old daughter and I did a one-day midweek trip down the Middle Fork of the American River. First of all, there's plenty of water despite the drought thanks to controlled releases from upriver hydroelectric dams. The crew is friendly and knowledgable and inspire confidence. Connor was at the helm of our boat. Really good guy and he worked his... More

We took a two day trip, the first day down Cherry Creek (Class V), camping in the wilderness and then the second day continuing down the river (Tuolumne Class IV-IV+). Pretty much the most intense trip you can do especially the "miracle mile" with 6 back to back class V rapids. Families and others not quite as hard core can... More

We took a family trip and had a blast. The staff was professional, informative, reassuring and we received good instructions prior to beginning trip and during the trip. Our guide Rose was amazing, helpful and confidence building. I would highly recommend this trip and this guide.

We had a fantastic time! Our guide was knowledgable and made verb the smaller rapids, thrilling! We did an all day trip and would love to do it again. We have been with several other companies. This one had a wonderful family feel among its guides. I would highly recommend A.O. rafting! Ask for Connor or Nate!
