7/14/19: Upper Kern season is projected to wind down the beginning of August. Around that time we will focus our rafting trips on the Lower Kern, where we offer half day, one day and two day adventures. If you are looking for a rafting trip in that time period, click here to explore your trip options.

Full Day Upper Kern

Our one-day Upper Kern rafting trips offer the best road-accessible class III-IV rafting in California. There are a number of different sections of the Upper Kern River. Our guides pick and choose the best sections each day, which means you will always have a blast. Unlike the Lower Kern River, the Upper Kern is free-flowing, which means the river level fluctuates depending on snowmelt.
