—Please note: While we cancelled our 2015 season, our 2016 season is looking excellent, and we are excited for a return to a summer of Kern river rafting. Please click here to view our schedule and rates.—
2015 Kern River rafting season cancelled due to drought
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. In a normal water year we operate from mid-April into September and we hope to resume that schedule next year. In the meantime, call or email us if you would like help in finding a rafting vacation this summer.
This season, our Idaho and Oregon rafting companies will be offering 4 – 6 day river vacations on the Middle Fork of the Salmon and on the Rogue River. If you are looking for a California trip, we can recommend an outfitter on the American or Tuolumne. One section of the Kern that might have a season is the short Lickety stretch near Kernville. For those trips, email us and we will put you in touch with an outfitter.
