Professional CPR-certified guides lead rafters down an adrenaline-packed 10.5-mile stretch of the upper Chili Bar or lower Gorge runs on 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 during the rafting trip, and all necessary equipment. Trips do not include a $9 river-use fee.

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.

This was my second time rafting with Sierra Whitewater and it was just as great as the first time! Our guide Iowa is passionate about his profession and the world he works in. He's really safety conscious but really fun too so the trip is really, really enjoyable. Sierra Whitewater is professionally run, the gear is well-maintained and you really feel they care about their clients having a great experience. I will always raft with them!

Our guide, Derek, and the rest of the staff were so encouraging and fun. I felt safe and still had a day full of adrenaline rushes. I would absolutely recommend this trip. It was a blast.
