WET River Trips

As Northern California’s premier whitewater rafting company for nearly 40 years, WET River Trips has been creating unforgettable experiences on the American River for outdoor enthusiasts of all ages and abilities for almost half a century.  Our dedicated team of seasoned professionals offers an unbeatable level of customer service and expertise for whitewater first-timers and the most seasoned adventurers, alike. Our friendly guides have an average of 10 years of experience and that, paired with their passion for whitewater rafting, ensures that each trip is one you’ll cherish for years to come. You can ask our customers—some have been rafting with us every year for decades!

Whether you’re planning to join us on the river for just a few hours (an “Express Trip”), a one-day or a multi-day trip, WET is committed to creating unforgettable experiences for groups of all sizes, ages 7 and up. We offer more than 10 adventures to choose from, including our popular Chili Bar and Gorge trips, our one-day or multi-day Middle Fork trips that are packed with thrilling Class IV and V rapids, or our exquisite, thrilling spring classic North Fork trip.  Our team is ready to customize a trip that best meets your needs, whether you’re going rafting “just because” or to create a teambuilding experience for your company or scout troop. Get ready to experience the American River like you have never before!

Trips include a gourmet deli lunch prepared riverside, an entertaining and skilled raft guide, exciting rapids and the best views the American River has to offer. After your trip, you’re invited to relax on our private campground at beautiful Camp Lotus or explore the surrounding area.

We have chosen to remain a small business, so that we can provide you with the personal, professional quality experience you deserve. We believe in creating an excellent experience for our customers from start to finish–from making your rafting reservation to following up afterward to check-in and thank you for choosing us. This is what sets us apart and you will notice the difference. For the WET River Trips team, rafting isn’t just our hobby—it’s our lifestyle. We look forward to sharing it with you.
