Active Adventure

Tributary Whitewater offers a variety of whitewater rafting trips with something suitable for all levels. From family vacations where kids raft for 1/2 price, to expert only whitewater adventures on some of the toughest rivers in the USA. No previous experience is required on many trips, and non-swimmers can be accommodated. Choose from a 1/2 day express run, a 1 day adventure, or a multi-day vacation, with options for wilderness camping, river side hot springs, hot showers or historic lodges. Great reliable rivers that run from April into October, and locations near Lake Tahoe, Sacramento, San Francisco and the Gold Country, and more remote parts of N. california for a real getaway.

Typical Day

Trips vary from 1/2 day (approx 3-4 hrs) to multi-day trips including all meals. You will receive paddling & safety instruction and life jackets when you meet us. Our professional guides will steer the rafts down the river, with our clients enjoying the participation of paddling, but oar rafts can be available on some trips for those who cannot or do not wish to paddle. Except on 1/2 day trips, we serve a bountiful riverside lunch, and then continue down the river for more great scenery and whitewater. At the end of the day, you arrive back at the meeting location (either in the raft or our shuttle vehicles) and if you are lucky, you will be spending a night under the warm California skies and looking forward to some more adventure the next day.

Age range, type of group

From 4 years to senior. The type of group varies depending on the level of difficulty of the river and the time of year. Lots of family groups, youth groups and corporate getaways on Class 2 and 3 rafting trips in the summer months. Active, adventurous singles, couples and office groups can enjoy a lot of great trips during the exciting spring season, and even through the summer on some reliable Class 4 whitewater runs available throughout the season.

Sleeping and meals

We provide a plentiful, wholesome lunch on the river on all trips except 1/2 days, and mouthwatering barbeques in our camp for our overnight guests. Camping is included on our overnight trips and tents and other equipment may be rented from us. On most rivers, accommodations are also available in the local area,

Restrictions

From 4 years upwards with age restrictions for different levels of difficulty and season. Non-swimmers are OK on Class 2 and 3 rivers, but swimming abilty is required on Class 4. Class 5 rivers require previous experience and a test may be required at the river site. Pets are not usually accomodated, but can be accomodated on some custom trips.
