The rafting trip was an amazing experience! Highly recommended if you're interested in anything outdoorsy. We took the American River South Fork path, which was a great experience for a beginner rafter like me. Be prepared to get extremely wet and potentially even thrown off the boat (which I experienced four times, three of which were voluntary). I had to knock off a star because although the trip was such an amazing experience, there was a lot of trouble to get ahold of them, which is understandable for a small company on the tail end of the off season. Highly recommend!
My husband and I, brought my son (his first time) to raft the American river. Tyler and his wife had quick responses and were able to accommodate us 2x on our last minute trips without giving us the runaround. Our first trip was the south fork of the American river which consists of level 2/3. This is the perfect trip for first-timers. The 9 miles (about 3 hours) were very easy going with lots of learning opportunities. Ted (our guide) was very polite, assertive, and playful. It seemed like he was the lead for of all the rafts within the company. He was able to prepare us for each rapid by giving details of the rapid name, what we were going to experience, and what he expected us to do with every scenario. Though he was a small young man, he had answers for our questions and he was able to get or fat asses out of the water each time!!! We had plenty of opportunities to jump in and swim, surf, and rock jump into the river. We loved it but wanted more white water rafting excitement!!! Two weeks later we decided to take on the middle fork which includes the tunnel chute with levels 3 and 4. This is an all day trip including lunch. There was so much excitement that we lost track of time on this trip. We again got Ted as our guide on our second trip. He provided us a very memorable trip. I highly recommend this company to get you down the river safe with lots of fun. I’ve read others positive reviews and their detailed experience are spot on!!!
Dave was a great tour guide! He gave lots of interesting info and let us do some extra stuff that the bigger companies skipped entirely. We hit every feature and even paddled back upriver to surf some rapids. The fresh baked brownies at the end were a sweet touch to send our fun filled day.
Best rafting company in Coloma. It is a small family run company with some really dedicated guides. Extremely knowledgeable and super friendly. The owner Tyler has an incredible passion for the river and you can find him hopping in a raft to guide people down the river. They focus a lot on safety and fun.
I wish I had pictures and videos of how fun it was, but I didn't want to lose my phone in the river. My raft guide was Brian, aka Duffy, and he was absolutely incredible. One of the friendliest, funniest, and most skilled guides out there. I had so much fun on the river. There were absolutely no problems with the rafting or anything.
