Trip Itinerary

We meet at 9:30AM at our Rafting Center and then shortly after, drive to the river to start the trip. Due to the lower river flows, we’ll be rafting the Jungle Run section of the Lower Kern, which is a Class II canyon with some Class III rapids. Unlike the Upper Kern, this section of the river pulls away from the road and is far more secluded. Halfway through the day, we’ll break for a long lunch which consists of a deli spread of build your own sandwiches, and once finished, we’ll get back on the water. Before reaching our takeout, we’ll stop at a jump rock and then we’ll have one final rapid before meeting our shuttle vehicle. From here we’ll drive to our private campground which is just ten minutes away. At our campground, the guides will prepare appetizers and dinner. The next morning, we’ll have coffee, tea, and breakfast. After breakfast, we’ll drive back to our Rafting Center, concluding the trip.

How many people are in each raft?

Depending on group size and which rafts we use, we fit between 4 and 6 guests in each paddle raft. As often as we can, we try to keep groups together in the same raft too.

What’s the minimum age for this trip?

This trip has a minimum age of eight years old.

Can you accommodate dietary requests?

Yes. With adequate advance notice, we can accommodate reasonable diet requests. These can be made when you complete your online waiver.

What’s the whitewater like?

The rafting portion of this trip is on a section called The Jungle Run, which is Class II with a little bit of Class III.

What is your camp like?

Our camp is located alongside the river and is private. Meaning only those that are on your trip and the guides have access to it. Scattered up and downstream we have wooden platform decks for sleeping. We provide each guest with a “paco pad” which is a thick sleeping pad to use on top of the decks. Most guests sleep out, underneath the stars as we don’t typically experience any weather during the rafting season. You’re more than welcome to bring your own tent if you would prefer.
