Big Thrills

Providing amazing whitewater rafting adventures on the American River since 1978, we’ve made the conscious decision to keep our company small. With decades of industry experience, we’ve learned that smaller more intimate trips are the way to go, both for our customers and guides! Come and join us on one the forks of the American River and you will notice the difference WET River Trips makes in your next adventure.
