Kern River Whitewater Rafting and Kayaking

How about a whole day of whitewater fun? Try the best of both worlds! Enjoy a half-day in the two-person inflatable kayaks and the other half as a bigger group in a raft. Lunch is on us between the runs. This trip is especially popular with Scout troops, YMCA parent/child programs, church groups, company outings, and family and friends.
