This is our 2nd time using MRA. Taking smaller children and my wife makes it a bit uneasy for me in the event someone goes out of boat or boat flips, but both times we got guides who were trained and experienced and the leader of that trip. The water was much more furious this time than last but our guide Travis did a great job getting my family onboard and down the river. Thanks again and we will not hesitate to use this rafting company a 3rd time!

To start, John (the owner) makes sure that his River Guides are all trained in how to read the ever changing waters, so that YOU stay Safe and Have Fun.
Then, each guide likes to have fun with you. Make sure you tip them by the way. Like your favorite waitress, these Guides have influence over your trip.
I have made several trips over the years with Only This Company. They are centrally located in Kernville, right next to the water. Awesome location and a Great Team equals Fun Fun Fun! Check out their campground too. This team loves to have fun with their guests. ENJOY!

Great campsites, next to water/river, hospitable camp hostess, clean restrooms with warm water. No bear boxes. The mountain biking shuttle they provide for an additional charge was great! If you ride or raft John and the gang will take excellent care of you and your friends or family.

Great campground, right on the river, hot showers, sandy campsites with BBQ grated fire rings. Only a couple of miles from town, lots more trees than other campgrounds.

My family and I have rafted the kern on numerous occasions, and we have always used Mountain and River Adventures. The guides are experienced and fun and always have a little surprise for you during your adventure.
