Summer of 2017! High Water, Easy rapids

Our fleet of small rafts and inflatable kayaks is perfect for a family or group outing on a beautiful wilderness river. A Beyond Limits guide will lead you throughout your voyage, give instruction and direct you through the easy rapids. These trips can be custom designed to best suit your needs. Please contact us to find out more information.

We offer tours on several sections of the American River:

South Fork - Lotus Section - 4 miles: 
A good choice for families with young kids. This instructional trip meets at River Park Resort in Lotus,CA. The entire trip takes less than 2 hour from start to finish. Minimum group size is 6 persons.

Lower Middle Fork - Mammoth Bar Section - 8 miles:
This true wilderness river is a beautiful oasis in the summer. This is also a good river for fishing kayaks or a peaceful float on a hot summer day. This trip takes 6 hours from start to finish and meets in Auburn, CA. Minimum group size is 8 persons.

We also offer guided tours on the Lower Stanislaus River in Knights Ferry, CA:

Stanislaus River - Knights Ferry Section - 8 miles:
A fun trip which can usually be floated without a guide. In 2017 the water will be high and we will be offering a guided raft trip on this fun stretch of river. This trip takes 3 hours from start to finish and meets in Knights Ferry, CA near Yosemite National Park. Minimum group size is 4 persons.



Who said there was no water this year going down the Sierra? We had a blast on the South
Fork of the American River with Beyond Limits Adventures. We asked for a 'really wet' trip,
and were already surfing a rapid 2 minutes later! The guide was amazing, allowing us to do 'bull riding' at the front of the raft, and sometimes to swim the rapids. My 12-year-old daughter loved
it. After the rafting, we stayed for the night at the Beyond Limits campground, by the river. Very relaxing, with some gold panning and swimming. We highly recommend!
