We had a party of 6 from the age of 15-63. Our guide was Fabio. He was an excellent guide who definitely knew every turn of the river. The rapids were everything from gentle to hold on tight!! We had a great time. The kids got to raft, swim and even jump off a small cliff. Great time for everybody.... More

It was a sensational time and what made it amazing was our tour guide/water rafting expert Oscar! We signed up for the full day 21 miles journey with a tasty lunch (burgers, hot dogs and veggie burgers for my two daughters) The water temp was cold yet refreshing! The river was flowing nicely and the active rapids didn't disappoint. We... More

This was my first rafting experience on the American but it will NOT be my last! We chose AWA because one of our office Staff (Maria) had gone with AWA last year. The choice could not have been better! AWA was an excellent host. The river was great, Our raft guide Jack O was very experienced and gave us the... More

To start off we did the Chili Bar half day rafting trip and the rafting was a blast. Check in seemed to run late because some guests did not follow directions which created delays. Check in was a bit chaotic. I think they tried to divide groups ready from groups late to get things going but hard to tell. Seemed... More

I went with Action Whitewater adventures team for an awesome rafting experience on the south fork American. There is a camping site where we can assemble and from there the team takes us in a car with the rafts and other safety gears towards the north of the river so that we can raft and come to the camping site...

My wife and I, and four friends recently chose to go rafting on the South Fork of the American River with Action Whitewater Adventures. One of the friends found a Groupon coupon for a decent discount, and the company appeared to get good reviews, so we took a chance. My wife and I have been rafting on the South Fork... More

I took my adrenaline/dopamine junkie man to celebrate his birthday doing what he loves best: Chasing rapids & capsizing. We spent a whole day floating down the American River with perfect strangers (Chelsea, Finn, Muhammad Ali, Miles, Mario) and our Action Whitewater Adventures general crew. The first part of the day was spent "warming up" for the second half of... More

We did the full day Chili Bar and Gorge South Fork of the American River. This is a very fun beginner to low level intermediate whitewater trip. There are several long sections of calm water, but when you get to the fun stuff, get ready to get wet. Our guide Samuel constantly put us in perfect position to get the... More

I went with my wife and her two friends and the four of us had an excellent time. My wife was the only one of our party who had ever been river rafting before. We went on the 15 mile full day South Fork Gorge. After a quick safety briefing and tips on how to paddle properly as a group... More
