The trip was amazing. Recommend everyone should at least try it once in their lifetime. The kids love it. Thank you Devon! You were funny and ensure our safety at the same time. We will definitely do it again next year.

Had a great time white water rafting with H2O adventures! Our guide Ben was very nice and supportive. He showed us really cool things about the river and made sure we were taken care of with plenty of food and water. The experience would not have been the same without Ben!

About This Deal

Itinerary

The Middle Fork of the American River is the one of the best summertime Class IV whitewater rafting trip in California. This trip meets at 8:15 AM in Auburn. A 45 minute van ride dead ends at Oxbow Reservoir where gear is distributed and the stoke begins. H2O hits your face early with Good Morning rapid. A warmup is immediately needed as the infamous Tunnel Chute rapid is just over a mile downstream. After five miles of good class 3/4 whitewater, the river settles down and provides opportunities for rock jumping, surfing, and ‘riding the bull’ as we float through the canyon towards a riverside lunch stop.
Following lunch the river complies with our need to digest and remains calm for a few more miles until arriving at Chunder Pond. From here the river changes drastically with rapids such as Chunder Falls, Parallel Parking, and Ski Jump bringing your adrenaline to a high again. A mandatory walk around Ruck-A-Chucky falls allows for a chance to watch your guides run their raft down a commercial class 6 waterfall. Your trip concludes at the old Greenwood Bridge site. Guests are returned to their vehicles around 4:00 PM.
