Go Rafting This Fall: Great Whitewater Flows in California Through October!

September 6th, 2016 Jamie Low


The Fall Whitewater Rafting Season in California (September & October):

While the first day of fall isn’t officially until September 22nd, we are busy helping our guests get a jump on planning for the fall rafting season! Whether you’re taking the kids on one last family outing before the winter season begins, or joining us with your co-workers or classmates, the fall season is a great time to spend a day on the water in California: not only can the weather in the Sierra foothills be very pleasant, but we have great flows thanks to water releases from upstream reservoirs. And as a bonus, the river tends to be less crowded after the summer crowds dissipate, leaving the rest of us with the river to ourselves.

Fall Rafting Schedule:

Whitewater rafting trips are available on the following rivers and schedule; please contact us for details about specific trip dates:

For the remainder of the 2016 rafting season, we are expanding our 50% Family Discount offer to make it available every day we run trips on the South & Middle Forks of the American River (including our Tom Sawyer trips.)

Here’s how it works:

Each youth (ages 17 and younger) accompanied by one full paying adult gets half-off the regular rate. Plus, additional kids automatically get 10% off for any river trip we offer.

Note: This discount offer is not available online. To book one last day on the river with the kids, please contact us to make arrangements.
