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!

Chris was excellent guide, funny and took the time to teach the kids some local history in a fun way. We had a great day

We had so much fun on the south fork of the American river! I would definitely recommend this to all of my friends, and if you get the chance, request Wiggy as your rafting guide she was so much fun!

What You'll Get

Rafting, unlike its cousin canoeing, won't require you to sit on a hard wooden bench in a pair of Camp Pocahontas shorts, singing "Kumbaya." Paddle with dignity with today's Groupon: for $55, you get a half-day rafting trip for one person (up to a $115 value for an adult, which includes the government river-use fee) on the chili bar run of the south fork of the American River from Beyond Limits Adventures in Lotus. Rafters must be 10 or older, and you must register for the trip in a group of two or more.

This half-day guided morning raft trip is one of the closest trips of its kind to Sacramento and features some of the wettest water on earth. During the three-hour journey, you'll roll through the American River's beautiful upper "Chili Bar" section and over frothy Class III rapids with just enough vim in them to playfully toss you about. The trip is equally excellent for families, first-time rafters, and seasoned rivermen in need of new fodder for their tall tales. This Groupon is valid for trips from May 15 through September 2, 2011. Trips depart daily, though availability can get tight on weekends. Lunch is not included, so be sure to pack a sandwich with your sea legs.
