Northern California is well known for its pristine, world-class rivers and recreational whitewater sections. Let us worry about the details and logistics or arranging a whitewater tour by signing up for our exciting raft tours.
Group Rafting Information: If you have a group of people who want to have a great time together on the river, we can help! As the only Arcata-based organization that offers rafting, we can design a custom adventure for your group that will make for a memorable day. If you’ve never experienced the thrill of whitewater, or just want to get out on the river, join us on a Class II or Class III stretch of the river that has the best conditions for your group. Price variables include the size of your group, transportation arrangements, food and location (dependant on weather and river conditions). No experience is necessary!
