At Sierra South, our goal is to provide you, your family, and your friends with an exhilarating whitewater experience that will leave you grinning from ear to ear. We’ve been guiding rafting trips on the Kern River since 1985, and that experience has helped us curate adventures suited to thrill-seekers and nature lovers alike. Whether you’re looking for a heart-pounding encounter with the rapids, a family-friendly trip, or a multi-day wilderness getaway, we have a fun, on-the-water adventure waiting for you.

Our full-day whitewater rafting trips provide you with an adventure of a lifetime. The day you spend with us on the mighty and beautiful Kern River will have you leaving with a joyous smile and a love for the river that you might have never known you had. We offer full-day trips on Class 2-3, 4, and 5 rapids. Enjoy a mid-day lunch prepared by your guides before more fun rafting in the afternoon.

How do you know what adventure to choose?

All Kern River rafting trips provide a unique experience to submerse yourself in nature and adventure. Depending on your group’s age, fitness level, experience, and desire for adrenaline will help you choose the appropriate tour. Our Class 2-3 rafting is perfect for young families, and people who are hesitant about whitewater rafting. Don’t let this fool you. Class 2-3 rapids are still a fun and exciting experience. Class 4 is for those who are looking to be in a faster-paced environment, with bigger splashes, more teamwork, and more thrills. No experience is needed but you want to be comfortable in the water. Class 5 is for experienced rafters who are physically fit, team players, comfortable swimming in whitewater rapids, and adrenaline junkies looking for the most difficult trip we offer. If you have any questions about which trip to choose, contact our river experts to help lead you in the right direction.

How long does a full day trip last?
