“Our entire family had an OUTSTANDING time on the Lower Kern this past summer. The whitewater was amazing and your camp and meals were fabulous. We’ve decided to make a trip to the Kern River a family tradition and plan to be back every summer. A great time was had by all! Thanks to all of you at Whitewater Voyages for making this trip possible.”
–Susan W.

“The Kings was the first river I ever ran. It was loads of fun, yet mellow enough for just about anyone, even my scaredy-cat wife! I highly recommend it!”
–Eric Creaux

Whitewater: A Novel Book Review/Interview from Rossmoor News

“Thanks for another thrilling 2 days on the Lower Kern. Karn and Sam did a spectacular job guiding us off of, around and sometimes barely between the boulders in the river. Our meals were plentiful and scrumptious. I bought Bill’s new book Whitewater: A Thriller from Brian the morning before we floated and started reading it in camp. I couldn’t put it down and finished 2/3 of it before we shoved off for our second day. I stayed in Kernville an extra day and finished the book. The book made the trip even more special. See ya next year.”
–Dennis Wagner

"Our good friend Craig invited 15 friends along to celebrate his 50th birthday on a WWV trip to the Upper Kern. And a great day it was! The thrills were intense. Roger was the guide for my raft and did an outstanding job. Although we had no prior raft experience, he trained us quickly and got us working as a team. Thank you Roger for a fantastic trip! "
–Bob Jensen,
Santa Barbara, California

“Our three day Forks of the Kern trip was one of the most memorable experiences I have ever had. The backcountry scenery was incredible, the guides were more knowledgeable and competent than I could have ever expected and the whitewater was truly legendary. I will be back to run this amazing stretch of whitewater again!”
–Kevin S.
Santa Monica, California

“The Half Day Lower Kern was just what our family needed. We didn’t have time for a longer trip but were still able to get a taste of this fabulous river. We’ll be back for a longer trip next year, but we were certainly grateful for this opportunity.”
–Coni B.
