Covid-19 Update  

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 groups.

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"!
  • Learn about the interesting river history of the Coloma area and California's Gold Rush
  • Bring a picnic lunch and relax at our beautiful riverfront resort before or after your river trip

Big thanks to John, our guide for the afternoon south fork trip today. This was the first rafting trip for my wife and I and we will remember it for a long time to come. He was very nice, answered any and all questions we had during the trip and shared lots of great stories too.

I will definitely let anyone I know about your trips if they come out to the area. It was well worth the trip for us. This was one day of our week long trip to Lake Tahoe to celebrate our 20th anniversary.

Thanks again.
