"5 stars for Chad, Sean, Kiwi Chris, and the whole gang at WET!

These guys run a great tour regardless of your experience level. We've grown from 1st timers to experienced amateur rafters and we always have a blast on the raft, during lunch and camping. The American River is a beautiful place to experience nature and get a wild ride on a raft through some amazing class III - IV+ rapids!

We also appreciate the professionalism and safety first mentality of the guides and company, not to mention the humor and fun attitudes. On these trips, you'll learn a ton about the river and can also get some great tips on traveling abroad for other great rafting and outdoors experiences. A trip with WET is a tradition that my wife and our friends look forward to continuing. The river is never the same and there are several different routes and trips that you can plan so that it never gets old."
