About Eagle Rafting
Come and raft the Kern River! Kern River rafting combines the adventure of white water rafting with the natural beauty of the Sequoia National Forest. The Kern River cuts through more than 150 miles of the Sierra Nevada Mountains on its journey to feed the fertile fields of the San Joaquin Valley. Over time it has become a prime destination for whitewater enthusiasts and recreational adventurers alike. Located about 3 hours from Los Angeles, the Kern Valley offers hiking, fishing, equestrian trails, camping and some of the best whitewater in the country.

We took 12 Senior Girl Scouts (high schoolers) to Kernville to raft with Eagle Rafting. Joe was very helpful with the booking and Sheldon and Sunshine were our guides. We were able to camp on the property which made our 2 days of rafting very easy. Boy was it fun! The girls worked on a Paddling Badge and had an amazing time challenging themselves to try things they had never thought they could do. They learned how to read a river and swim down rapids, throw a rope bag to save someone, raft and also guide a raft with their peers and finally ride IK"s down rapids. And I cannot forget the BQ lunch was amazing. Thank you Eagle Rafting, you truly have an experience for everyone...Sunshine you have an amazing career in front of you....Sheldon-- Your experience and patience made the trip and experience AMAZING..and Wendy you rock driving the bus.

Our family, (myself, my husband and our three children aged 11, 8 and 6) had a fantastic day rafting down the rapids on the Kern with Jimmy. We would recommend it highly. I was initially a bit anxious as neither I nor the children had ever rafted before but he really put us at ease. We went down the rapids twice. It was very exciting and there was a chance to swim in the river which the kids absolutely loved. Afterwards the they cooked us some homestyle ribs and treated us to some live music. Both Joe and Jimmy were very pleasant and great with the children. It was one of the best days of our holiday in California and Arizona.

Eagle Rafting was so much fun! My daughter is 7 year old and the team at Eagle Rafting was so good with her! Our guide, Jim, was very safe and made me feel very comfortable taking my daughter down the river! Joe, the owner took photos to commemorate our experience! The BBQ lunch was awesome! This outfit is fun, safe, hip and downright amazing! We will be back next summer! Thanks Guys!!

We visited Joe, Chris, Sheldon and Nick at Eagle Rafting as first time 'White Water Rafters'. Two adults, a 14 yr old and a 10 yr old. One of our party was particularly nervous but there was no need. The whole experience from start to finish was special. No unnecessary frills but we were really well looked after, with all necessary equipment and felt safe all the time. The river was pretty fast - especially Ewings Rapid - and made for two exhilarating runs with expert tuition and guidance from Chris. Sheldon - in his Kayak - covered unforeseen eventualities. All in all a fabulous experience that we would do again in an instant. Joe took some great photographs too. Big thanks to all the guys here and we look forward to coming back sometime. David, Tracey, Alex and Katie (with the English accent!!!)
