What You'll Get
Biologists estimate that water makes up 65% of the human body, 71% of the planet's surface, and 0% of the R & B group Earth, Wind & Fire. Conquer the planet’s most prevalent liquid with today’s Groupon: for $79, you get a full-day whitewater-rafting trip from W.E.T. River Trips in Lotus (a $159 value).
Experienced guides at W.E.T. River Trips lead whitewater rafters of all skill levels over challenging rapids during daylong tours along the South Fork of the American River. Paddle wielders navigate 21 miles of Class II and higher waters for a cardiovascular and upper-body workout under the tutelage of a professional guide and a shoreline squad of cheerleading trees. W.E.T. River Trips provides life jackets and equipment—including wetsuits during spring or high water and helmets to keep newfound knowledge contained—and a midday picnic lets paddle jockeys recline while chattering about watery adventures, including their exploits on the adrenaline-luring, spray-launching section of the river known as the Chili Bar. An included shuttle returns patrons to their automobiles, which jealously hold their breath in an attempt to gain seaworthiness.
