White Water Wednesday

 

Wet your Pants on the Kern!

Whitewater  Wednesday returns to Kernville, on the Wild & Scenic Kern River;  Whitewater, USA!  It will be a fun-filled day of sunshine, water fights,  soggy sneakers, and action packed rapids.

On  this day only, the Kernville Chamber of Commerce, along with 5  commercial rafting companies operating on the Kern River, will sponsor  different trip options:

  • The  one-hour Lickety Split trip is an inexpensive introduction to  whitewater rafting. The run is full of enough lively excitement to  challenge just about everyone from tykes to grandmas.  One-hour Lickety  Split Class I-III, $30/person. Run times are: 10:30am, 12:00pm, 1:30pm  or 3:00pm.
     

  • Two  Hour - Sequoia Splash Run ~ BIG WATER AHEAD! Here’s our two-hour  “SEQUOIA SPLASH” raft trip (Class II-IV) on the “Wild & Scenic”  Kern, California’s premiere Whitewater River!    
     

      $55/person. Run times are: 10:00am or 2:00pm. 

Lunch  is included with all trips. Extra lunches are available for purchase.   All proceeds go to the Kernville Chamber of Commerce to help fund  community projects such as Whiskey Flat Days, Kernville Fall Festival  and Christmas in Kernville as well as maintenance of community venues  like the baseball field, and rodeo grounds.

All trips will be led by professional guides and equipment will be provided from the contributing outfitters.

Give  this drenching treat to your employees, customers, family and friends,  or another, unfortunately dry, loved one.  This is a mid week bonus!!   The water is back this year, making for some exciting trips. Minimum  age is 9 years for the Lickety Split and 12 for the Sequoia Splash.  Everyone is required to wear Coast Guard approved life jackets which the  outfitters provide. Swimsuits, shorts and a pair of old sneakers are  the clothes for the day. We guarantee you’ll wet your pants on the Kern!

Class I – Very Easy – Flat water with some small waves and ripples

Class II – Moderate – Larger waves but no obstacles. Some splashing.

Class  III – Difficult – Longer and rougher rapids. Some maneuvering is  necessary in heavy waves and around obstacles. Paddling easily learned  under guide’s expertise

Class  IV – Very difficult – Faster pace with longer drops, powerful waves,  precise maneuvering required around looming obstacles.
