We here at River Journey have your safety first on our minds on all the trips we offer. If the self-guided float has you a little concerned, or maybe you want a scenic tour from one of our trained staff, then the guided option is available for you. Our staff is highly trained in first aid, cpr, swiftwater rescue, and river navigation have years of experience on the Stanislaus River.   Since our company is the only one located in Knights Ferry many of our employees grew up on this river. We all spend our summer days (and some nights) on the river and know a lot about its history, the flora and fauna that surrounds it, and what things to expect while rafting it.  We offer paddle trips where you join in the paddling fun or let us do the work in our oar frame powered rafts. This trip also includes a deli style lunch prepares at our private riverside resort that is only open to our guided trips.  With real flushing toilets and away from the crowds this is a great way to spend the day on the river! Groups both young and young at heart love our guided trips and take the fear out of the Stanislaus for many beginners. Call us today to set up your guided trip and really have a stress free day on the Stan!
