Whitewater Rafting
The Truckee River, from Boca to Floriston, is located near Truckee in North Lake Tahoe. It is a fun, 7-mile guided white water trip, with many Class 2-3 rapids for the first 6 miles and exciting Class 3+ rapids in the last mile. The duration of the trip is approximately 3 1/2 hrs. The river passes through the High Sierra desert, with cottonwoods lining the banks. Though the river parallels I80, the road is out of sight and hearing. The surrounds seem quite remote except when passing by the little village of Hirschdale. Clients are transported to the put-in site on the Little Truckee River near the old Boca town site. Life jackets and paddles are provided and a safety talk will be given. Each raft will be under the control of a professional river guide who will call out commands and help steer the raft. Early in the trip, maneuvering and paddling skills will be explained and practiced. Oar rafts may be provided on request, due to physical limitations. Above the rapid "Bronco," it will be possible for the more timid passenger to disembark and hike from here to the take-out. Most will opt to run the most exciting rapids on the river. At the take-out point at Floriston, the equipment will be loaded while clients are served refreshments and then we return to the original pick-up point. [More]
