Beginning with the Class IV boulder slalom of Rock Garden Rapid, you'll find that the whitewater on your first day hardly lets up. You'll speed through complex, demanding rapids until we stop for lunch. Back on the water, you'll careen through more Class IV whitewater before we reach our camp for the evening. While your guides prepare dinner, you can relax in the shade, fish, go for a hike, or take a nap—whatever suits your mood. After an enjoyable meal, you'll spend the night nestled in the beauty of the Tuolumne Canyon.

The next morning, you'll awaken to freshly brewed coffee and a hearty meal. Another day of whitewater brings more challenges and thrills. You'll experience the intensity of Class IV+ Clavey Falls before floating through a quieter Class II-III section of the river. But it's not long before the Class IV action returns with rapids like Grey's Grindstone, Cabin, and Hell's Kitchen. We take out on the quiet waters of Lake Don Pedro.

The itinerary above may be altered due to a range of variables, including river flow levels, water release schedules, time of year, fire restrictions, and other factors. Contact us if you have any questions.
