Itinerary: Please check in at American River Raft Rentals at least a 1⁄2 hour prior to the start of your trip. Your day begins with a bus ride upstream to our exclusive salmon viewing put-in near the Nimbus Fish Hatchery. Enjoy several miles of rafting where you’ll be able to look for salmon on their natural spawning migration. While floating you will get to learn about salmon, the river, wildlife, history and recreation. Snacks and drinks will be provided along with opportunities to take photos. Once you arrive at the Lower Sunrise Access you can elect to end your trip or join our guide on an adventure through the San Juan Rapids. The shuttle bus will then bus you back to your vehicles. Trip lengths will vary; however, approximate float time is three hours.
What to Bring: Make sure to check the weather before you arrive because our tours will run rain or shine. A poncho is suggested if showers are shown in the forecast for the date of your trip. Warm clothing is suggested; however, cotton does get cold and heavy when wet. We encourage sandals or shoes that can get wet. Cameras should be in waterproof cases and lanyards are recommended.
For ages 5+ and children must weigh at least 40 lbs.
IMPORTANT: Salmon tours are held rain or shine and are therefore non-refundable. Punctuality is required because the bus will leave from 11257 South Bridge Street, Rancho Cordova, CA 95670 promptly at the scheduled time of your trip.
