We really enjoyed our trip on the American River (full day) with Mike as our guide. He was friendly yet professional and we felt very safe. The scenery was beautiful and the rapids were exciting. There were 9 of us including Mike in our raft....More
Request Rasta (Johnathan) as your guide, get into the adventure spirit and expect to have a blast! We selected the half day Chili Bar run on a Monday. River raft traffic seemed light and was just perfect for us. Our group consisted of myself, 4...More

I’ve had the pleasure of adventuring down the American River with AWW twice in the past 12 months. Both trips were quite enjoyable! Our group did the run they refer to as the Gorge. We had large enough groups with us both trips to fill...More
First time ever, white water rafting, and I absolutely LOVE it! I can't wait to go again! I will admit, I was super scared. This is definitely outside my comfort zone. I'm not brave. Haha. But there was nothing to be afraid of.
Had so much fun with our friends and family. We arrived late so missed the food but the trip on the river was amazing, Fabio our leader was amazing and friendly and talented.
Would highly recommend this for anyone, my kids are 8,10 and 12...More

You can, if it is waterproof and if you have a way to attach it to your body so you won't lose it. But really, you will be way too busy paddling, to be able to use it. At Troublemaker, the last and biggest rapids on our Half Day Chili Bar run, they had people with cameras set up to take pictures of the rafters. After we got ashore, we went to their little hut and viewed the pictures on their computer. The photos were great, and available to buy. They gave us a great price and put the photos on a flash drive. I used them to make an 8x8, 20 page Shutterfly book.
I always get thirsty, so I took my Klean Kanteen water bottle, which had a shoulder strap. Our guide tied the strap to the raft. I never took a drink. I never thought about taking a drink. I would not have been able to put the paddle down and untie the strap to get at the water anyway.
I wore Neoprene gloves because my fingers freeze easily. I also wore a tiny fanny pack so that if the gloves didn't work out, I could put them in the fanny pack. Of course the fanny pack wound up having to be worn under my life vest. I could not have gotten to it if I had wanted to (I didn't).
An ALL DAY trip would be different, I imagine.
