We've been rafting the South Fork of the American River for more than 40 years. Our trips are fun for everyone... first timers and veteran rafters alike will have the time of their lives on the American River! Rafting is the perfect "low risk" outdoor activity for families and small groups during the current covid-19 situation. We practice approved social distancing techniques during your stay!

What sets us apart from other rafting companies is our talented staff. Our skilled river guides each average more than 15 years of professional rafting on the American River and other rivers throughout the world. We raft with safety as our number one objective and we also let you experience fun, unique and interesting stuff on every trip:

  • Discover fun river things to do like "surfing" and "riding the bull"!

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!
