Arrive at our Rafting Center at 9:00 AM and check-in with our staff. Once everyone has arrived the Trip Leader will give an orientation talk and the guides will hand out and fit personal flotation devices (PFDs) and helmets. Once we’re ready to go, we load up on the bus and head to the put-in. At the launch point, guests meet their river guide and the guide then gives a Paddle Talk. Immediately following the Paddle Talk, we push off and each raft practices their paddling technique making sure their boat is ready to work together as a team. By this point, the trip is officially underway!
This trip is on a beautiful section of the Kern River. We spend plenty of time floating through the Lower Kern canyon and we tackle the occasional Class II and III rapid. Jump in the water with friends or hang out with your guide as they teach you about reading water and the river.
