Our passion for whitewater kayaking is what fuels our business practices. For 36 years we have been teaching guests how to kayak on the Kern River. During that time Sierra South has produced multiple professional paddlers, instructed over 10,000 clients, and developed passions that last a lifetime. Our curriculum is kept up to date and curated by world-renown kayaker Evan Moore. It is our mission to teach the most up to date skills and techniques and to have you leave an able and ready kayaker.

Tubing

During the later summer months, once the river flow is low enough we offer a 3-hour unguided tube trip down the Lickety Split section of the Upper Kern River. Although we always recommend booking a whitewater rafting trip, tubing is a great option for cooling down on a hot summer day. Our tube trips include a shuttle to the put in, lifejacket, and a helmet.

Paddleboarding & Raft Rowing
