The guides are the backbone of this business. They are knowledgable and hard working. My family had the best time on the River! The only issue was I ordered a non-gluten, egg-free lunch for my partner and there was nothing he could eat besides potato chips. As I said, the time on the water was worth everything!! Our guide JOE was awesome!

This was one of the most fun whitewater trips we have ever been on! The guides were all so nice, the lunch was pretty good, and the rafting and length of the trip (we did an all day one) was absolutely perfect for what we were looking for -- a day in the fresh air, good conversations, decent rapids and plenty of them!

About Sierra Whitewater

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.
