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.
W.E.T. River Trips
Founded in 1978 out of a love of the plentiful whitewater rafting around Sacramento, W.E.T. River Trips has been outfitting rafters and leading trips continuously for the last 34 years. They maintain a ratio of one guide per six to eight guests on their trips to ensure less crowded boats and to make each trip more intimate and personal. W.E.T.'s tours explore more than 18 rivers' rapids ranging in difficulty from Class II to V. Trips often include camping, meals, river stories, and musical entertainment provided by the staff.
