River Journey Adventures has been living, breathing and having fun on the Stanislaus River since 1985.  As the only company with year-round offices in Knights Ferry we have roots deeply planted in the Stanislaus River (we live here as well!).  As a family of river-runners, we love sharing our passion of rafting/kayaking and SUP with old and new friends alike.  Once you raft with us you become part of our "river family" and we hope that feeling of family shines through in what we do.

Even though our company has grown over the years our mission has not- to be your partners in experencing the outdoors.  We want to bring you affordable, family-friendly fun on the river with your safety being our upmost concern.Our many years in the business has taught us that people raft with us for more than the river.  Return customers choos River Journey's employees, our congenial professional guides, streamlined onlione reservation process, state of the art equipment, and the camraderie that develops among people sharing such an enjoyable activity.

Check out our the rest of our website to see what trip fits your group.  Check out our reviews to see what people say about us.  Most of all give it a try!  We look forward to seeing you on the river!

River Journey Adventures, LLC operates under special use permit or license issued by:

United States Army, Corps of Engineers, Sacramento District

The Lower Stanislaus in its natural state would not have sufficient flows during the summer to support rafting or other floating activities as they are known today. Adequate flows for rafting result from hydroelectric and other releases from facilities located at Goodwin Dam and above. These releases are made for power generation and other services and are not subject to the control of Stanislaus County or commercial rafting companies operating under permits from United States Army, Corps of Engineers, Sacramento District.
