Kern river trips sorted by month
March is on the early side for rafting trips, but in some years we’re able to offer Half Day Upper Kern rafting trips in late March. To be considered for these dates, please send us a message and we will add you to the interest list.
We typically start offering Half Day Upper Kern rafting trips towards the beginning of April but sometimes we can start as early as late March. During this time we focus on our Half Day Upper Kern, but if there’s a large group we can offer a Kernville Rapid Run or Full Day Upper Kern. Jump to May.
As more snow starts to melt and the Upper Kern river rises, we continue offering the Half Day Upper Kern. We also have some dates for our Full Day Upper Kern and Kernville Rapid Run rafting trips. Jump to June.
June is a transition month as the Upper Kern peaks and starts to have lower water flows. At this time the Lower Kern river begins to flow, allowing us to run our Two Day Lower Kern and other half and day trips. Jump to July.
Some years the rafting season will end in August. It all comes down to snowpack and water flows. Jump to September.
If we have a fantastic snowpack and great water flows, then the season will go through Labor Day. Our last Two Day would be the Sunday of Labor Day weekend, and then we would focus only on half and full day trips.
