A full day of Class 4 Whitewater action

The day starts with a meet and greet at the Crooked Lane Brewing Co in Auburn, CA. You will park your car and our skilled drivers will bring to to/from the river. 

Once we arrive at put in, guides will rig boats and get guests geared up with PFD’s, helmets, and paddles. We put in just below the Oxbow powerhouse where the dam controlled flows are pouring out of the station. 

The rapids start quickly after getting on the river and Tunnel chute is sure to get your adrenaline pumping early on. 

We continue paddling through many Class IV rapids in the morning and will get a break in the afternoon. Mid-day we can relax a bit more as the whitewater calms down and we raft several Class II rapids, some suitable for swimming too!

We stop for lunch and guides will prepare the deli spread for our guests. We provide sandwiches/wraps, fresh fruit, cookies and chips. After lunch we clean up – leave no trace – and head back on the river. 

After lunch we get back into some big whitewater action again, with many Class IV rapids. 

The Class V Ruck-A-Chucky waterfall is a mandatory portage (walk around) for our commercial guests. There is a short hike around this major rapid that you can watch your guide drop before getting back on the raft. 

We float several more fun rapids to the take out where your friendly driver is waiting for the group. 

Gear/boats etc are all loaded onto the shuttle vans and head back to Crooked Lane. 

End the day with a cold hand crafted drink (beer/seltzer/sour/juice) at Crooked Lane while viewing the photos from the day. Inside the cool AC is a TV designated for viewing the fun rafting from the day. Check out your Tunnel Chute and Chunder photos from he day.
