We went to Kernville during a road trip with friends and we were looking for kayak renting. Instead, we found SoCal and tried a rafting with Troy as guide. During the time from Kernville to the startpoint of the raft, I was kind of afraid of what Troy was explaining. But that was just to get us in the mood... More

Once we arrived the staff was great, down to earth, and very helpful!! The guides were GREAT!! One of our very experienced... More

Compliments to staff from the time we made the phone call until we got out of the river! Very professional and very helpful when on the river. The owner was very helpful with all our questions and concerns, will definitely be back next year with a bigger group for this trip. Thank you again, SoCal rafting.

A great half day out on the water on the tubes. A bit of a shame that there was not so much water (time of year). Felt more like a lazy river, but still good fun. First time around was with our tour guide James, nice guy. Once you take the 10:30 or 12:30 tour, you can go as many... More

I bought this groupon because I've always wanted to go white water rafting. When booking my tour, the girl I spoke with informed me that this would be inner tubing as the water was too low for a raft. I thought that was interesting. I took my friend. We had a great time. All of the staff were very friendly... More

To start on a positive the front office staff are lovely and helpful. I did the paddle rafting with a mixed group of people. We were in a group of around 40 people- too many really. Our guides were young high school lads who seemed more focused on flirting with the girls and showing off than the safety of their... More

I purchased a groupon and regret it dearly. They are unorganized, we checked in early and they made us wait alot then informed us they were overbooked. We drove far and planned in advance for that day of rafting. They finally had volunteers and we headed to our groups. The guides were very young and flirty with the young girls,... More

This was a lot of fun. The guides were total pros. Explained everything about safety. Knowledgeable and fun, I would recommend this again. We did the short one hour run, but I would go back and do a longer one.

We had an awesome time. Parking wasn't too difficult and the staff is very friendly. Advise getting there early to sign waivers and get life jackets fitted. We took our 9 & 10 year old and they loved it our guide Alex did an amazing job of teaching them and letting them have fun. Both kids felt really comfortable with... More
