The enthusiastic staff at Bass Lake Water Sports furnishes a fleet of water-recreation vessels that are ideal for friends and familial units bound for five-hour H2O excursions. Get vertical on a paddleboard, balancing atop its smooth surface while using the long oar to bop back-talking waves on their heads. Canoes and kayaks slice through the lake's pristine waters and provide boaters with ample glimpses of the surrounding scenery, and paddleboats encourage leg muscles to propel them on an aqueous jaunt toward meet-and-greets with watercraft-loving otters. The five-hour rental time allows partakers ample opportunity to exercise as well as relax, much like running a marathon before watching a movie marathon.

Zephyr Whitewater Expeditions has been soaking up water-dousing revelry since 1973 with an assortment of safe aquatic adventures on California’s scenic rivers. No experience is necessary for this half-day voyage, which begins at noon and typically concludes about 5:30 p.m., on the Kings River, one of the last undammed and unspoiled rivers flowing out of the Sierra Nevada mountain range. At the Zephyr base-camp meeting place, groups of water wanderers 7 years and older receive a brief prepping on the journey ahead before donning a life vest and joining a CPR-certified guide in a six- to eight-person paddle raft. River explorers then embark on a 10-mile journey full of untamed splashes and feral rubber duckies, and seasoned guides answer any questions and fish-themed riddles that come up along the way. Between each lively bit of rapids, which can vary in classification from season to season, calm stretches give rafters the opportunity to reflect on the Kings River’s tremendous beauty or newly acquired life-vest tan lines. Victorious paddlers end the day with a complimentary snack and beverage before a Zephyr shuttle returns them back to their vehicles.
