Location & Hours
Such a great experience! Took 6 of my guys up for a bachelor party. They were very accommodating with all of the planning and a few last minute changes. Our tour guides Augie and Mary were absolutely the BEST! Made our trip fun and exciting. I’m so happy I chose Kern River Outfitters. We will definitely be going back and using them again.
Great trip for first timers! Guides were knowledgeable and fun. They took the time to educate us first before our trip. Isaac was an awesome leader. My 11-year-old daughter and I did the ‘mild tour’ with some class 3’s. Felt safe, nothing too crazy. Would highly recommend and definitely do it again!
Adam was a stellar boat captain. The whole team was to notch. Personalities and guest service beyond expectations. From the instructions given by Bailey to the cool bus ride up and down.... the perfect weather and great company... it was an amazing experience. So glad I picked this company. It was a last minute decision about 3 hours before the trip and they accommodated us so quickly. Never have gone before and now I'm ready to go again and again. Thank you to a great team! Adam, I didn't have cash and I wish I could have left you a huge tip! I'm so sorry! You deserve so much!
My first experience white water rafting, and I’m hooked! The entire staff is incredibly knowledgeable, cool, friendly and experienced. Bailey prepared us so thoroughly, guided us safely and made the experience SO memorable!! This is the most accommodating rafting company you will find!!
Our daughters surprised us with this amazing rafting trip as a Mother’s Day adventure. We were provided all the necessary gear and safety instructions. We had excellent guides (Matt took great care of us), beautiful scenery and so much fun. We are leaving with great memories and would love to return.
