  • American River Raft Rentals
    Sometimes you just want to spend a summer afternoon floating down a sun-dappled river. When those times come around, American River Raft Rentals has you covered. After renting one of the company's easily navigable rafts, customers can head out on a self-guided tour along the American River, which snakes around the outskirts of downtown Sacramento. The class I-II river offers both relaxing lulls and safe thrills thanks to the San Juan Rapids area, which is gentle enough for novices but bracing enough for thrill-seekers. Floats end at River Bend Park, which boasts picnic tables, restrooms, and plenty of shade-giving oak trees.

  • California River Adventures
    Groups meet at Camp Lotus for a brief orientation and safety prep before the rafting rally down to Lake Folsom begins. Ideal for all skill sets, CRA's program accommodates passengers ages seven and up. The four-hour journey shoves off into a gentle warm-up section of class-II waters to prepare for the gorge's jostling class-III rapids. Fourteen-foot self-bailing rafts equipped with first aid, river-rescue kits, and Coast Guard?approved life jackets safely seat eight passengers plus an expert guide. As a team, the boatload of adventurers navigates the water like a squirrel surfing in a washing machine, punching through white caps and splashing about wavy highs and lows along the 12-mile route. All gear is included, and participants are only required to pack products that make the trip more pleasurable (swimsuit, drinking water in a durable bottle, sunscreen, shoulder-mounted boom-box, and a dry change of clothes).

  • Alopex Eco Adventures
    When Jos? Aguilar studied abroad in Argentina, he explored many of South America's nooks and crannies. He went mountain biking through the Andes, hiked the 24-mile Inca Trail from Cusco to Machu Picchu, and tangoed in the clubs of Buenos Aires. Needless to say, he became hooked on travel and began working for various large excursion companies. But when he saw how poorly executed some of the tours were, he decided to open his own company, Alopex Eco Adventures, dedicating himself to helping fellow adventurers make priceless memories. Alopex now whisks travelers to such locales as Yosemite, San Francisco, and Lake Tahoe. Once they get to their destination, explorers might hike a picturesque walking trail, take in city life, or participate in a brewery or winery tour. The tours include transportation in luxury Mercedes Sprinter passenger vans, which are powered by renewable biofuel mixed with the happy tears of whales.

  • Adventure Connection
    The founders of Adventure Connection believe in magic. Not the trickery of the stage or spells cast by mysterious neighbors, but of the spiritual, environmental, and economic boons of the rivers they have spent their lives traversing. More than 25 years ago, a group of believers came together to share their love and passion for the rivers of California, building a company that combines whitewater rafting, wine tasting, and camping along the waterways they love. Over the course of the last two decades, the staff has guided boats of up to 18 people through the rapids of the American, Kaweah, and Tuolumne Rivers, coasting through mild ripples or white-knuckling class V rapids. Groups often leave the rafts behind to explore the scenic countryside and renowned wineries of the surrounding El Dorado region or to pitch tents and sleep under the stars.
