Before man conquered his fear of water, he amused himself with dust sports such as pushing boulders off cliffs, wrestling tumbleweeds, and falling in the dust. Rinse yourself off with this Groupon.
$59 for a 10.5-Mile South Fork Rafting Trip (Up to $120 Value)
CPR-certified guides lead rafters down an adrenaline-packed 10.5 mile stretch of the American River's south fork. Adventurers navigate Class III and III+ rapids, which are safe enough for beginners yet challenging enough to get hearts racing. Sierra Whitewater supplies snacks, transportation, and all necessary equipment. Trips do not include a $9 river-use fee.
The rafters hear it before they see it. The roar of crashing water grows louder as the boat rounds the bend and plunges headfirst into a Class III+ rapid. But the group atop the inflated vessel keeps its cool, paddling in unison as it both fights and follows the churning water. During moments like these, Sierra Whitewater's guides help rafters conquer the American River's natural roller coasters. Their trips launch from the Sierra foothills and wind down miles of California's terrain, encountering Class II, III, and III+ rapids christened with names such as Satan's Cesspool, Fowler's Rock, Son of Satan, and Son of Satan's Ungrateful, Middle-Aged Stepdaughter.
