Guided Rafting Trip- 11am

Enjoy the Stanislaus like we have not seen it in 20 years, with the safety of one of our guides!  Meet us in the quaint gold-mining town of Knights Ferry which makes for a great place to explore after the trip!  Here we will check you in, have you sign waivers, and get you all geared up for the trip.  After meeting our guides you will get a professional safety orientation.  Then you will take off with your guide on the river.  Enjoy beautiful scenery, intriguing history and a fast flowing river while our swiftwater rescue trained guides (many with 10+ years experience) help keep you safe on your trip down the river. At Horseshoe Park we will serve snacks and drinks for you.  Various cut fruit, meat and cheese and cracker platter and hummus and carrots, along with a choice of water or soda. We will relax for about 20 minutes and enjoy the scenery and kids can swim in the calm waters. Then we will leave Horseshoe Park for the last 3 miles on the river trip.  Enjoy more beautiful scenery and fun currents until we end the trip at Orange Blossom Park.  Once you get there we will load up on the shuttle and head back to Knights Ferry.  There you can stop by our store and check out your photos, purchase souvenirs, and of course get a world-renown ice cream at the Knights Ferry Creamery.
