American River Raft Rentals
Sometimes you just want to spend a summer afternoon floating down a sun-dappled river. When those times come around, American River Raft Rentals has you covered. After renting one of the company's easily navigable rafts, customers can head out on a self-guided tour along the American River, which snakes around the outskirts of downtown Sacramento. The class I-II river offers both relaxing lulls and safe thrills thanks to the San Juan Rapids area, which is gentle enough for novices but bracing enough for thrill-seekers. Floats end at River Bend Park, which boasts picnic tables, restrooms, and plenty of shade-giving oak trees.
Easy check-out and check-in. Very friendly staff. Need to carry raft a couple hundred yards to launch point; 4-person raft is pretty heavy for 2 people to carry that far. Nearly capsized in rapids about half way through--could have used some coaching on how to get through it safely. But a fun trip overall and will probably repeat next year.
