Update on the Kern River: Rafting Season 2016!

Rafting season has been off to a great start this year. SoCal began rafting tours starting March 18th. Guide school was running during our first trips, and we’re happy to say that we’ve already had some awesome reviews from guests that we’ve taken down the Kern River.

When is the best time to go rafting on the Kern River?

If you’re wondering when the best time to go whitewater rafting this year, we recommend the end of April to the beginning of July.

As you can see from the graph above, there will be another rise in water levels coming at the end of April into June (via Dreamflows). You can keep checking the current flows, and make your reservation if you’re looking for BIG WATER. It’s going to be a good year, and we can’t wait to go boating with you!

At the end of March, we had the opportunity to have a drone take footage of a family river trip. Thanks to one of our awesome guests, who took the video for us! Keep watching our YouTube page for more videos coming soon.
