"Whitewater Adventures get my No. 1 recommendation for outdoor entertainment this year." - Daily Democrat

After an orientation, you are off for a fun-filled day of adventure. On this day you will notice various birds of prey and host of wildlife that make their home in and around the river banks. The majestic canyon walls towering above you are actually million year old tilted seabeds carved by molten lava from the Mt. Konocti eruption during prehistoric times. You will venture through rapids such as Widow Maker, Mario Andretti, The Infamous "Mother" and many other thrilling rapids. Lunch is served as a riverside picnic. At day’s end you are rejoined with the group at our prestigious Irby campsite, deep in the canyon, and on the river. Here you can take a nature hike, explore the abundant wildlife, play horseshoes, basketball, volleyball, shoot some pool, swim or just kick it around the campfire sharing your day’s adventures with fellow rafters. Dinner is a first-class feast served in a tiki-torch setting. Canyon evenings at our riverside camp are enchanting and starlit with nothing but the whisper of water to lull you to sleep right after our famous disco dance party on the river which ends at 10:30 PM.

You awaken on the second day to crisp morning air and a scrumptious hot breakfast. You will then embark upon the river thus beginning your second day of rafting excitement. Lunch will be served on the river.

    FYI: I did a weather check for Rumsey, and it is expected to range from 106 during the day to 64 at night with high humidity. So bring sunscreen, and don't bother with long pants or shirts with long sleeves!

    How bad is this for someone that's never done this before? If my raft turns over, how will I get back in it? How fast are the rapids? I want to go, but don't want to drown.

    February 17, 2013

    • Gigi

  • Carmen

    Hello, I told my friend about the trip and she wanted to know if kids are allowed to come? There are two kids 13 and 10 and are exellent swimmers. Wasn't sure so I thought I'd ask. Thanks.

    February 22, 2013

    • Olga

      Their policy states "Please no rafters under the age of 12 years old." so I guess the 13 yr old can go, but not the other :( sorry. I am bringing my 14 yr old too.

      February 22, 2013

    • Carmen

      Thanks Olga! I'll let her know!

    what river is this taking place at? Do we need our own life jackets?
    Do we end at the campground that we started at?

    January 20, 2013

    • Jeff W.

      I googled Cache Creek. This trip looks like nothing more than a lazy river at a Vegas casino. If you fall out just stand up the water isn't very deep. Bring plenty of alcohol there are lifeguards along the whole way. No thankyou!

      February 20, 2013

    • Olga

      Well I am sorry to tell you Jeff, you are mistaken. There is an area in which you can get in the river and swim in front of the camp ground, but by no means is the river rafting on a lazy river or can you stand up at any time during a raft... Bring plenty to drink and hang out after your raft, not before or during, is very clearly stated on the informational page listed as "What to Bring". Lifeguards, I wouldn't say that, you get life jackets - that's pretty much it - you need to know the basics and pay attention to orientation. There are many rapids and a few spots to pull over and have lunch, relax, and catch your second wind to finish the rest of the rapids - which are pretty gnarly. Let me know if you have any more questions.
