- $65 for a one-day whitewater-rafting trip on the South Fork American River Chili Bar ($119 value)
Experienced guides at W.E.T. lead whitewater rafters of all skill levels over challenging class-3 rapids on 10.5-mile tours along the South Fork of the American River from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Paddle wielders navigate the Class III waters for a cardiovascular and upper-body workout under the tutelage of a professional guide and a shoreline squad of cheerleading trees. W.E.T. River Trips provides life jackets and equipment, including helmets to keep newfound knowledge contained, but does not provide lunch. At the end of the trip, a shuttle carts rapid navigators back to the embarkation point.
W.E.T. River Trips
Founded in 1978 out of a love of the plentiful whitewater rafting around Sacramento, W.E.T. River Trips has been outfitting rafters and leading trips continuously for the last 34 years. They maintain a ratio of one guide per six to eight guests on their trips to ensure less crowded boats and to make each trip more intimate and personal. W.E.T.'s tours explore more than 18 rivers' rapids ranging in difficulty from Class II to V. Trips often include camping, meals, river stories, and musical entertainment provided by the staff.
