Tributary Whitewater Tours is your best option for group rafting trips. We offer generous group rafting discounts for all types of groups, including youth, scouts, corporate, church, bachelorette/bachelor parties and family reunions. Choice of river trip will very much depend on youngest or oldest member of the group, swimming and athletic ability. We suggest you base your decision on the least able in the group, length of rafting trip and desired location.

We have been operating rafting trips in California since 1978, and have an excellent safety record and a low turnover of staff. Due to the number of more difficult rivers we offer, we use only self-bailing rafts and our guides are, at a minimum, certified in first aid, CPR and swiftwater rescue. Our guides are extremely qualified, but have the personalities to ensure a safe but fun trip on any level of white water.

Close to the San Francisco, Mountain View, Sacramento and Lake Tahoe!

We offer river trips on over 10 rivers throughout California (mainly NorCal). Most groups choose one of our fun and exciting American River trips, but we have so many other to offer. For groups from or visiting Lake Tahoe the Truckee River is always an ideal choice for a 1/2 day trip!

We make it easy for the Group leader

We have a designated staff member who helps our group organizers thru the entire reservation and trip process. They are happy to help you choose your trip, walk you thru the options for any available add-ons or upgrades (like camping in our Canvas Tents on the South Fork American River). They will greet you upon arrival (when possible) and follow up with you after the trip. 

See group discounts on our discounts page. We also have a special system for groups like bachelor parties for individual payments instead of putting everything on 1 credit card. This does limit the discount available, but definitely saves some stress and lets us take care of more of the work for you.
