Pricing for all of our trips includes: paddles, life jackets, boats, and shuttle service. We will also help you put your boat into the water, as well as greet you at the take out and assist you with your equipment. Our goal is to make things as easy as possible for you so that you can focus on enjoying your day in the sun! In 2015, because of the mellow flows, all trips will be getting out at the very end of Horseshoe Park, but should still take 3-4.5 hours to complete!
2015 Pricing - May 23rd to Sept. 6th
2015 Pricing – Before May 23rd
2015 Pricing- After Sept. 6th
*There is an additional $2 per person river usage charge that covers Stanislaus River Parks commercial rafting fees.
Starting in mid-May of 2015, the Army Corps of Engineers, the regulatory agency that controls the park system we operate through, will begin to charge $4 per car for parking for the entire day. Parking can be paid for at one of the many kiosks found in the Knights Ferry parking lots (if you have trouble with this, our staff will be happy to help).
Prices on heavily-booked dates tend to cost more, so if you have a big group with flexibility on the date you book, we recommend rafting in early June or after the first week in September to get the biggest savings! Also do know that on peak days we have our Orange Blossom to Oakdale trip, which is a more relaxing, less crowded, and more affordable section of the river.
If you have a group of 10 or more, give us a call or submit a request and we can work out a group discount for you and your group (some Saturdays excluded)! We also do special pricing for youth and church groups, as well as non-profit organizations.
We make group payments easy for you! You can set up reservations so that people can call in and pay their share, or you can share a unique link that we give you at the time of reservation, and your group can all pay online! Either way, group payments could not be easier!
In the 2015 rafting season we are going to offer discounted rates to groups of 35 or more who go with us on our Bus and Raft trips. Bus and Raft trips involve us coming to a location of your choosing, picking up your group, taking you to the river, and then taking you home at the end of the day. And with prices starting at only $40 per person (depending on date and location) for both rafting and transit, you can't find a better deal around! Our ongoing partnership with Delta Charter Bus has enabled us to offer discounted rates on bus and raft trips all over Northern CA. So take advantage of the low prices, and don't worry about driving!
