Kern River Outfitters
Wait ‘Til Next Year. Please Join Us In 2015.
We will not be offering Kern River rafting trips this season. The California drought has reduced projected Kern River flows to a level that is inadequate to run the top-quality rafting trips our guests expect. The good news is that If current forecasts hold, things will be remarkably different in 2015. If you are planning a group charter trip on the Kern River for a special occasion, company trip, scout or school trip, reserving a 2015 charter date well in advance is essential. A deposit will hold a 2015 charter trip date for your group. For information, including details about our refund policy, call 1-800-323-4234 or email us today.
