Premiere Whitewater Rafting on the Mighty Kern River
Located in California, we are just about three hours north of Los Angeles. A hidden gem nestled at the southern tip of the Sierra Nevada’s, the Kern River has over 60 miles of commercially run whitewater. The typical season begins in April as the snow pack from the western slope of the highest peak in the continental United States, Mt. Whitney, begins to melt. This snow melt drains into the upper river basin and makes its way down to the Lake Isabella reservoir. The water is then let out of the Isabella dam forming a 21-mile stretch of excellent, commercially run whitewater.
