This was my family and I first time river rafting and we had the most amazing time. Although we all fell in and I was more scared than I have ever been in my life the everyone came to our aid and we were all just fine. If you've never done it you have to try it. You will not regret it. And the pictures they take are worth the money. Just an amazing experience!

Our whole party couldn't stop saying what a great time they had. Wife, daughter, son and son inlaw, his mom, and me. You just felt in good hands with with Fletch, which we highly recommend to ask for your river guide. He has been a guide for many years and was very educated on the area's history, which I was very interested in. WE had a bunch fun, and are planning for another trip next year.

What You'll Get

For $57, you get a half-day rafting trip for one person (a $115 value for an adult, which includes the government river-use fee) on the south fork of the American River from Beyond Limits Adventures in Lotus. Rafters must be seven or older and not be allergic to water or fun.

This half-day guided afternoon raft trip is one of the closest trips of its kind to San Francisco and features some of the wettest water on earth. During the four-hour journey, you'll roll through the American River's beautiful lower gorge and over frothy Class III rapids with just enough vim in them to playfully toss you about without risk of being launched from the boat. The trip is equally excellent for families, first-time rafters, and seasoned rivermen in need of new fodder for their tall tales. Trips depart daily, though availability can get tight on Saturdays. This Groupon is good for a trip any day through the week of September 6, but from September 11 to the end of the season it can only be redeemed for weekend trips. Lunch is not included, so be sure to bring something to snack on.

A reservation is required.
