Half-day Class II-III Rafting Trips on the Truckee River

These fun 1/2 day Truckee River rafting trips are the closest white water rafting to most locations in Lake Tahoe and Reno. The Boca to Floriston trip is an exciting guided Class 2-3 adventure usually available all summer. This section of the Truckee River heads east from Truckee towards Reno. The river travels from the higher elevation pine forests and flows into the High Sierra desert, with cottonwoods lining the banks.

Several reservoirs and lakes (Boca, Donner and Stampede) supply the summer water on these sections of river, not just Lake Tahoe. The Boca rafting trip is often available when the raft rentals are closed (due to high or low water). Be sure to call us if in doubt, as unfortunately some seasonal hotel workers are not always so well informed.

RESERVATIONS ARE ALWAYS REQUIRED on this popular trip, so please book well in advance. During peak season and particularly around July 4th, the afternoon trips can fill up weeks in advance. Space is limited so larger groups should definitely plan well ahead.

We can sometimes arrange group transportation for a fee from the Reno and Lake Tahoe areas. Contact us about your group plans.

Reserve well in advance for and Holidays and Saturday afternoon trips – don’t miss out !

This is NOT the raft rentals out of Tahoe City, which is often not open when we ARE running. We receive water from different sources down stream, not just lake Tahoe. So join us!
