“We had a fantastic time while whitewater rafting. Jon V. was very thorough and informative! I CAN’T WAIT TO GO AGAIN! “

“We’ve done several rafting and IK trips with Sierra South and always had a good time and been pleased with everything about Sierra South. I wanted my son to continue to work on his Whitewater Kayaking skills so I signed him up for a 1/2 day private lesson. As always everyone was helpful and informative. What really stood out was the quality of my son’s teacher Matt. He did a great job of explaining things (my son was working on his roll) and giving him helpful information to continue tuning his skills. My son had a great time and left with a reliable flat water roll.”

“We were there last weekend and did the Lickety Split with the kids, (10 and 11), it was a blast, Andrew our guide was great, tried to make the trip as fun as possible, even convinced one of our group to jump over the side and try the water. Next time we’ll take a longer trip. Highly recommend, great fun!”
