Who We Are.

WET River Trips has been creating memorable whitewater adventures since 1978. With nearly 40 years of experience operating out of Lotus–approximately 30 minutes from Sacramento, California—WET’s team of whitewater rafting professionals knows how to craft an unbeatable experience on the American River for the young and the young at heart. Led by owners Chad Richards and Logan Blower, who worked for the company for nearly a decade before assuming ownership, WET staff members have on average 10 years of professional guiding experience. Our team is excited to share with you their love of whitewater rafting and why WET is northern California’s premier rafting outfitter. We hope you’ll join us on the river!
