Whitewater Rafting on the Kern River

This is the Lickety Split trip done twice! After your first Lickety run, we head back upriver once more to put your newly honed river skills to the test. Now that you are a “veteran,” you and your guide may, if possible, try to navigate some of the more difficult lines through the bigger rapids depending on water levels on this exhilarating whitewater rafting trip on the Kern River. Wetsuits are not required but are highly recommended prior to late May or early June when the water is colder.
