always great to do the South Fork with out of town visitors. The organization was excellent. We were not impressed with our guide.

Our guide Fabio was great. He knew the river well and helped guide us through the rapids accordingly. The whole team was wonderful and really made for an enjoyable day.

What You'll Get

For $80, today's side deal gets you a white-water-rafting excursion and complimentary lunch at Action Whitewater Adventures—located at Camp Lotus—which is approximately three hours from San Francisco (a $180 value). Rafting season is from March until October, when paddles migrate upstream to battle bears for their share of fish.

After a brief orientation, you'll gear up in brand-new vests and helmets before embarking on your paddle-powered river cruise. The Gorge section of the South Fork American River, from Lotus into Folsom, is 10 to 12 miles of calm waters and has Class III whitewater rapids, making it just right for rookie paddlers and experienced old salts alike. With trips available seven days a week, each excursion meets at noon and returns river barons to their land chariots at between 5 p.m. and 6 p.m. Participants also receive a complimentary gourmet deli lunch, which accommodates carnivores, vegetarians, and omnivores alike. Email to schedule your trip, and check out the list of what to bring for water wear and footwear, which is the same advice offered to AWA's campers.

All participants will be required to sign a liability release, express assumption of risk, and indemnity agreement.

About Action Whitewater Adventures

To Action Whitewater Adventures' guides, setting is everything. During their full-day excursions, guides and groups mounted in rafts battle Class III and IV rapids just to make their way to a gourmet deli lunch set against the backdrop of the lush Lotus River Valley. Of course, they might argue the fun part is getting there.

They lead excursions down both the South and Middle Forks of the American River, some of the most popular rafting waters in the nation. On the South Fork, they conduct the "Chili Bar" run, a trip that covers up to 21 miles favored for its rough-and-tumble class III rapids and stellar countryside. The Middle Fork provides even rougher-and-tumbler Class IV rapids, the 18-mile journey punctuated by clear-flowing stretches populated by trout and adorable baby Poseidons.
