  • $169 – adults (all ages 14+)

Closest Rafting to Los Angeles!

The Kaweah river 1 day trip is a very exciting rafting adventure with many Class IV and V rapids

We will meet you in the morning and head out for an action packed day of challenging whitewater that begin with “Suicide Falls” and “The Flood” rapids. Lunch is served riverside mid-day and than back on the river to tackle some of the biggest rapids like “Upper and Lower Slickies” and “Holiday Hole”. Our take-out is at Lake Kaweah – just a short bus ride back to your vehicles. We’re usually off the water and back at our meeting site by 3 to 4 PM.

This is our closest trip to Southern California locations especially LA & San Diego, but it is not a beginner run. Swimming skills are required and previous rafting experienced is recommended for this action packed white water rafting trip.
