Class IV+ Whitewater Rafting Adventure on Kaweah RiverOur Kaweah 1-Day is a Class IV+ run perfect for experienced rafters and daring first timers.

In an area known as the Slickies, the whole river glides down sensuous flumes and water slides of solid granite polished smooth over the eons.

This challenging class IV+ run is recommended only for fit, active, experienced paddlers with strong swimming ability who are able to stay in a wildly tossing boat all the while paddling vigorously.

The Kaweah River is rated at Class IV+ and the flows are from snowmelt in the Sequoia National Park. Ideal flows are from 850 to 2500 CFS.

Kaweah River Rapids you will remember include the Krishna, Wedding, Screaming Right Turn, Elowin, Stonybroke, Dislocation, Toilet Bowl, Ditch Now, Suicide Falls, Shoot, Osterizer, Willows, Bumper, Hammer, Powerhouse and Cyanotic.
