For more than 35 years Tributary Whitewater Tours has been safely guiding California whitewater rafting trips on the American River and many others near Sacramento, Lake Tahoe, Mt. Shasta and San Francisco. We offer something for everyone, from Mild to Wild with some trips for kids as young as 4 yrs old.
Be sure to check out our Rafting Hot Deals for great discounts on California Rafting trips, including early and late season discounts, 3 day weekends and last minute specials.
Many of our California whitewater rafting trips will be resuming in April 2015. This includes the very popular South Fork American River and more advanced runs on spring rivers like the North Yuba, North Fork American and Upper Sacramento in N. California.
The Truckee River near Lake Tahoe will be scheduled starting in early to mid-May depending on the weather situation at higher elevations.
Most other river trips will usually be scheduled from Memorial Weekend (May 23) and these include the Middle Fork American and Lower Middle Fork American and the Northern California rivers like the Lower Klamath, Upper Klamath, and Trinity River.
Much depends on the amount of snow pack we get this winter, so updates on the schedule will happen most likely after April. We anticipate similar flows to 2014 and they were surprisingly good!!
Our office has reduced hours until April, however we are taking reservations now and we check email and phone messages most weekdays, so contact us to book or plan your 2015 Whitewater rafting adventure!
