Intense whitewater-rafting trips are a lot like gondola rides, except instead of being moved by a smooth serenade, rafters are carried by relentless rapids that can hardly carry a tune. Take on the relentless river with today's Groupon: for $62, you get a guided whitewater-rafting trip down the South Fork of the American River Gorge run, including lunch, from W.E.T. River Trips (a $125 value), located in Lotus. Trips run every day from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

During a whitewater-rafting trip, watery wayfarers thread their way through 11 miles of inviting eddies and gnarly narrow channels along the South Fork of the American River. Ideal for novices or experienced rafters, the South Fork gorge run sets paddle-powering sinew against natural obstacles, including the boisterous bumps of Haystack Canyon, the sloshing channels of the Lost Hat rapid, and the siren songs of wild ice-cream trucks. W.E.T. River Trips has been nautically navigating the mighty whitewaters since 1978, which means that most guides know the rivers they raft upon like the backs of their ever-moistened hands. Staff members at W.E.T. River Trips have at least two years of rafting experience, and some guides are fluent in English-to-trout translation should they need to ask for directions.

Aquasplorers are garbed with all needed life jackets, helmets, wetsuits during high water, and river-taming paddles, and stomachs are similarly saddled with a mid-trip lunch in the wilderness corridor. As long as those younger than 18 are armed with a parental-release form, W.E.T. invites all paddlers, as young as 12 years old, to join the ongoing splash-off with Mother Nature. Due to weather and safety conditions, W.E.T. may need to modify rafting trips. Check out the FAQ for a list of recommended clothing, examples of what to expect, and tips on waterproofing canvases for live-action picture painting.

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.
