Took a level 2/3 whitewater tour as a group of 3. It was our first time rafting, and had a great time. The guides were excellent- safety focused and fun. Another tour capsized two boats, while our large group of beginners didn't lose anyone, showing the prowess and guidance of the instructors. Our guide, "Lunchbox", was awesome. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a great day trip.read more

We had a great time on our afternoon trip! Timmy was a fantastic guide. It was my first time whitewater rafting, and I wasn't sure how it would go. Timmy did a great job navigating us through the rapids. There were some intense moments, but they were the fun kind of intense 😉 The Truckee River is beautiful! We even got to get out and swim a few times.Took about 4.5 hours total, which included about 3 hours on the river.read more

This was by far the best whitewater rafting trip we have done! Our guide, Christian, was fantastic and extremely knowledgeable. The rapids were intense but a lot of fun! We were briefed on what to do before the big rapids and felt very comfortable. We will definitely come back next time we are in Tahoe!read more

We have been white water rafting before in other states, and this by far is the best company. We have a 16,13 and 9 year old. Courtney went over all my concerns prior to me booking. And our tour guy “Will” was phenomenal with all my kids! Including a nervous “mom”. Don’t book anywhere else! Thank you ❤️The West Family from Iowa!!!read more
A must do. Period end of story.

What a fantastic trip. A group of kids from my son's 12u baseball team went with the parents on the Boca to Floriston raft. All the guides were awesome, knowledgeable, and extremely friendly. They all appeared to be having as much if not more fun that those of us that paid to go. We had Booker as our boat's guide. What a great young man. He had a huge smile on his face the entire time and he helped fish my big butt out of the water during what they call, "an out of boat experience." I got to join the Truckee swim club! Will definitely return.read more

We had an awesome weekend of white water rafting, amazing food and plenty of down time to fish and soak in the hot springs! The guides were so knowledgeable about the river, accommodating with customizing our meals, and super positive and fun to hang out with. All the kids (ages 6-11) had a blast on the river and on land with the fun games they brought. This family run business is professional and personable. We would definitely recommend Pauly and his team and are looking forward to booking another trip!read more
This family-run, yet _extremely professional_ outfit is fabulous. I wish I could give them six stars. The guides are funny, safe, and very, very...read more
