Whitewater rapids are nature's roller coaster and should always be followed up with a bite of nature's cotton candy—wadded-up moss. Go wild with this Groupon.
Choose Between Two Options
- $35 for paddle tubing rental with shuttle service for two people (a $70 value)
Organizers outfit guests with a life vest, helmet, and river tube, before shuttling them to Kern River for a three-mile float through snowmelt-engorged rapids.
- $59 for all-day tubing rental and Zorb River Experience for two, valid on Saturday and Sunday (a $118 value)
In addition to riding the rapids as many times as you like, you can hop into a Zorb ball, a 12-foot inflatable sphere you step inside to run across the water, hamster-style.
So Cal Rafting
In the warmer months, the runoff from the snowmelt on Mount Whitney combines with the flow of Kern River, creating a series of rapids that eventually give way to a placid lake. Kern River Rafting was created to give residents and visitors a chance to capitalize on the river's potential for fun and adventure.
A convenient shuttle service brings you to the river from the company's home base after you've been outfitted with helmets, life vests, and paddles. Tube-mounted excursions set out from the northerly reaches of the river and go barreling through rapids. Then a ferry brings crews back north for another ride or a jaunt in a Zorb globe. These 12-foot blow-up hamster balls allow those inside to run across water, performing amphibious feats that hamsters can only dream about.
