Klamath Rafting

Difficulty: I to IV

    Season: Year round

    Full Day, 2 day, 3 day, 5 day trips

In this remote Northwest corner of California, the land of Sasquatch, the mighty Klamath River carves its way to the sea. You can sense the presence of nature’s hand as we paddle through the lush evergreen forest and water carved canyons on this ancient Native American highway.

Rattle Snake, Dragon’s Tooth and The Devil’s Toenail are a few of the “big drops” that challenge us on our journey downstream. Listen to the guides as they fill you in on the rich natural and cultural history of the river and explain many of the wonders we encounter on our journey. In the calms between rapids, we will likely see some of the abundant wildlife the Klamath area is famous for.

Otter, beaver, mink, bear, elk and over a hundred species of common and rare birds live in and along the river. Our guides will further add to your enjoyment by preparing some of the best outdoor meals you’ll ever eat. The Klamath River, the second largest in California, has over a dozen different runs, and offers something for every skill level.

Cal Salmon Rafting

Difficulty: IV to V

    Season: Spring Only

    Full Day or 2 day trips

Tucked into the forest and steep cliffs of the Marble Mountain Wilderness, the waters of the California Salmon River tumble over a series of drops, falls, and boulders that demand the best from crews. 

The necessity to paddle with the incredible beauty of the river, constantly compete for your attention. 

This is whitewater at its best, and many of our customer’s favorites!  This spring fed river offers the most exhilarating Class IV and V trips in California.  We recommend at least a two-day trip.

Eel River Rafting

Difficulty: I to III

    Season: Spring Only

    Full Day, 4 day trips

Our South Fork Eel River trip lets you discover the truly scenic alternative for viewing California’s giant Redwood Trees.

The Eel flows due to rainfall in the winter, spring and early summer. Heavy rainfall can turn the water muddy but during the late spring and early summer the water turns a lovely emerald green.

Smith River Rafting

Difficulty: I to IV

    Season: Winter and late Spring

    Full Day

The Smith River is one of the loveliest wilderness whitewater runs in the country. 

While paddling next to giant redwoods trees, the four forks of the Smith make up the only complete river system in California because it is entirely undammed. 

The Smith is considered a “rainy season” river run, only available in the winter and late spring, but it’s clean, fun water is well worth it. The Smith offers a variety of runs for every level of expertise.
