Choosing Your Trip by River

We hope this page will help you in choosing your trip by river. We offer more river choices than most other rafting outfitters in California, including the most popular American River. Also some great options that are offered by just a few outfitters like the North Yuba and Truckee River. See below for all the river choices and a brief summary for each with the type of trip and the time of year it is available. There may be multiple options on each of these rivers from 1/2 day to multiple day trips. 

We know we have something for everyone. There is a wide range of California whitewater rafting trips to match all ages and abilities. The American River, Truckee River, Klamath River and others flow throughout the summer, even in most drought years. We have rafting trips that are great for families, and groups including youth & church groups, corporate outings, birthday parties, bachelor and bachelorette parties and more!

If you are unsure what river is right for you or your group, you can also Choose Your River Trip By Difficulty. If you are looking for trips in a particular location Choose Your River Trip by Location. When rafting with children 17 and under also check out Family Rafting.

With many choices, we know it can be confusing, so also feel free to contact us for advice and more information. Call us or fill out form at Request Information.
