“This Year’s El Niño Could Be the Strongest Ever Recorded”

-Time Magazine, 8/13/15

Get ready for an EXCELLENT 2016 Kern river rafting season. Read the Time article here. 

We’ve opened up our 2016 Kern rafting reservations. NOAA is forecasting an El Niño for the ’15-’16 winter, and if it occurs we will have the best whitewater rafting season in years. Combined with a return of excellent flows, and our trips limited capacity, we are anticipating high demand, and are encouraging guests to start planning their Kern rafting vacations now. Reservations can be made online, or you can email us for trip inquiries.
