I went with my 15 and 12 grandchildren for a two day rafting trip down Kern river. Everything was great, staff was very professional and safety thoughtful, food and set up of camping ground was very friendly and good.... a great experience, and they care about every details over these two days, Highly recommended.

My 8 year old took a rafting trip down the river with other girls her age. They LOVED it. They taught them safety and what to do if they fell out of the boat. Their boat guide was friendly and entertaining.

Our group of 6 did the 2 day lower Kern rafting trip. It was amazing!!!! Very organized outfit! They split our group up onto 2 rafts which we loved for several reasons. We got to watch each others faces as we tackled the class IV rapids, and it also allowed for each boat to become the others rescue boat in case one flipped or anyone fell out. The food was beyond delicious, very plentiful, and they easily accommodated our 2 vegetarians. The vegetables were very fresh and the meat was grilled perfectly to our liking!! Our guides were professional, safe, and very accommodating. Quiggly (sp?) and Talent safely maneuvered us down river, while Logan maned the oar boat with all of the food and water. On day 2 we had amazing water levels so we also had the pleasure of adding guides Austin and Jack, and even our driver came along for day 2!
This trip would have been amazing with any guide, but I really feel like we won the jackpot with our guides! We are already planning another trip with this company!!

There was disorganization with booking and check-in process but MRA was able to reconcile their errors at arrival. We booked the full day rafting tour on the Upper Kern which consisted of a small starter run by the power plant followed by 3 trips on an upper run with a few sections of class 4 rapids. Our guide, Amelia, was awesome. She was knowledgeable of the runs, ensured safety in the boat and even had a few funny jokes to tell.

Cons: We were a group of 7 split between two boats. At first I thought the $65 price tag for a cd of photos was expensive. Then I find out it was for only 1 boat, not pics of both our boats. $115 for a CD of pics is absurd and greedy. Next time I'll take my own pics.

Had fun on the Rapid Blitz with 8 year old twins along on their first trip. I would recommend this as a family experience for anyone. We felt safe and had a great time.
