Active Adventurewhitewater rafting
on Class II - IV rivers in California. Great for any skill or adventure level enthusiast. Whether you're a first timer or an adrenaline lover you will be sure to have a great time.
You meet us at a designated location and time for your trip. The guests are check in, geared up and then shuttled off to the put-in. After rafting
for a time, we stop for a plentiful and delicious deli-style lunch including our fresh baked cookies. After satisfying your appetite we load up back into the rafts and continue the adventure down the river. At take-out, the gear is loaded up and we shuttled the guests back to the meeting place and hope to see you again! (If you are on a 2-day trip, dinner, camp, breakfast and another day of rafting would follow.)

Sleeping and meals
No matter which trip you choose, we are available to help you arrange sleeping accomodation . If you are a 2-day trip, camping is at our private river front campground which includes a country style BBQ dinner, slide show and full breakfast. Lunch is included on all 1-day trips as well as refreshments at the end of the day. Located not far the our meeting place, a wide variety of restaurants are available. We would be happy to help with your selection.
We do not allow pets or smoking on the rafts as it is a safety issue. Our trips take up a good portion of the day, so it might be a good idea to not bring pets. If you smoke, you can take them with you to have at lunch time or take-out. Because of policy and liability restrictions we have minimum ages for each of our rivers so please be sure to ask our staff.
