The five-hour raft trips depart daily from Knights Ferry, less than a two-hour drive from San Jose and thirty minutes from the Yosemite National Park entrance. Each raft can seat two to six paddle-bearing passengers. Following an extensive safety talk, the journey down the Stanislaus River begins with several easy rapids to warm up river arms. Rafts then traverse the Russian Rapid, a bend of class-II, medium difficulty rapids that will splash rafters as they pass. During busy weekends, a photographer is on hand to capture all the spray-soaked smiles during this stretch of rafting. The next two miles of the journey are among the most scenic thanks to basalt walls, fig trees, and fish-filled pools dotting the riverscape. Bring a mid-day meal and beverages in cans or plastic for snacking and sipping at one of the two riverside picnic areas. At journey's end, a shuttle bus will transport rafters back to their cars. Small coolers that can be carried by one person are allowed to ride on the rafts. Discover maritime mobility with a raft ride from River Journey. Check-in time is 10 a.m.
Must be over five years old and sign waiver to participate.
