Frank and his group of guides at Kaweah Whitewater Adventures provide the best rafting trips around. Our group of families have gone twice and plan on continuing to enjoy the trips for years to come. They are experienced, safe and fun. There is no need to go anywhere else. It is truly amazing fun.

Its hard to find places near Los Angeles for a quick rafting weekender with the family or scouts or friends, but we found it! Kaweah Whitewater Adventures was the perfect outfitter for our getaway to Three Falls, near Sequoia. The guide was extremely knowledgeable about both the area as well as rafting technique. We had so much fun. True professionals... More

Exciting and potential for danger like any good Indiana Jones adventure! Just make sure you are traveling the river with local white water rescue expert Frank Root. I would recommend Kaweah River Whitewater!!

Our group of 9 enjoyed a morning on the river. Frank was an excellent guide -very patient and explained the route for our 2 kayakers in the group. He had some fun games for the kids to play, too.

Kaweah Whitewater Rafters is a must do for those looking for some excitement during your visit to Sequoia National Park. Great way to experience a wild river with great group of professional guides. Keep in mind this is not a Disneyland ride and has real element of danger ....Having said that, Go For It!! You won't regret it!!

When I told the locals at our hotel and Sequoia Tours that my daughter and I were going. Whitewater rafting, their responses were to ask who we were planning to go with...and when they heard, they all unanimously said that they ONLY recommended going with Frank (the owner of Kaweah River Adventures). Usually by late June, the river is low... More

They asked us to arrive at 3. Everyone was waiting in a parking lot for 1 hour and 30 minutes, not doing anything. That is not how my family and I wanted to spend part of our afternoon. We finally got in the boat, on the water, a little after 5 pm! No explanations were given about the delay. Kaweah... More

Scott, our guide, had great knowledge of the area and was HILARIOUS! We were the first out in the 2010 season and had a BLAST! Frank, the owner, was amazing. He answered questions anytime....day or night. Frank was well prepared even though we were three weeks early into the season. We highly recommend whitewater adventures.
