Day we went water was low and we were told trips were on a day to day basis - River Master calls raft companies in the AM to tell them if they can operate or not. Took advantage of the online reservation discount and saved a few bucks. First staff we met were at the Quarry Parking Lot and they... More

We enjoyed an easy drift down the river with our four and seven year old kids. There were just enough "rapids" to keep it fun and the staff was very helpful. We visited on a Thursday and didn't find it as crowded as some of the holiday visitors claim. The water was low but we were warned ahead of time... More

Group of 8, 4 adults and 4 kids. We ordered a boat that would fit 8 and they didn't have one when we arrived. They allow way too many people on the river so the line to get to your raft is long and the line for the bus to return is long, The bus journey back was so crowned... More

We didn't think we would be able to take this trip when we visited in late June due to the low water levels but we were lucky and they opened a few days into our holiday. This was one of the most fun things we did while in Tahoe City. We were advised before we started that river levels were... More

This is one of the best activities in Tahoe. Nice, calm (most of it) float down the Truckee River. It can take as little or as much time as you want. We have even pulled over on the side and just relaxed and watched the others float by. No rafting experience needed. Just simply float. At the very end you... More

This company uses the blue rafts and are very organized and customer friendly. We rafted day before closure due to water levels being low . Our trip with adventure at times as we... More

This is one of the most organized and well run and just plane fun things we have ever done around Lake Tahoe. I wish I would have remembered everyone's name, from the young lady that answered our phone call that got us rolling. The parking patrol that got us parked, the guy that gave us rafting instructions so we understood... More

First, one possible point of confusion. Two rafting companies are next to one another and with similar sounding names (when you are not familiar with either). This created one problem in that part of our party booked at the one next door - but since they launch boats next to one another we just caught up to them in short... More

This was the highlight of our summer Lake Tahoe trip. Our family of 5 and one small dog went in one raft down the Truckee River starting at Tahoe City. I would recommend wearing a bathing suit and clothes you don't mind being wet in. I should probably have brought something long sleeved to keep the sun off of my... More
