Beyond Limits Adventures, Inc. operates under special use permit or license issued by:


The South Fork of the American River in its natural state would not have sufficient flows during the summer to support rafting or other floating activities as they are known today. Adequate flows for rafting result from hydroelectric releases from facilities located at Chili Bar and above. These releases are made for power generation and are not subject to the control of El Dorado County or commercial rafting companies operating under permits from El Dorado County.”

I had a blast rafting with Beyond Limits this year!

It was pretty easy to make reservations for my group. The Beyond Limits staff is super friendly and really helpful. My group did the South Fork (1/2 day) trip.

At 1:15, we were given all the safety rules. Since my group of 9 couldn't fit in 1 raft, we were split into 2 different rafts. Ashley ended up being my raft guide, and she was awesome! Ashley did a great job steering and telling us when to paddle forward.

It was a lot of fun rafting in the Class 3 river. Some of the waves was a bit scary, so I couldn't help but It was nice that we always stayed on the raft, so it never flipped over. We only jumped into the river to cool off, since it was pretty hot.

Overall, I'll definitely go rafting again with Beyond Limits. The staff is great, so you feel very safe with them.
