Just like our Los Angeles Blitz tour, the Bakersfield Boogie is two back to back trips. Our expert river guides will provide you with instruction in paddling, ferrying, navigating the rapids, and will accompany you on your trip down the river. This section of the Kern has five class 2 and 3 rapids, Little Mama, Big Daddy, Sidewinder, Freight Train, and the famous Ewings Rapid. Once you to get the hang of things on your first trip, your river guide will then put your new skills to the test on your second run, taking more advanced and technical routes on the river. After the tour, we will take you over to the Pizza Barn for the included lunch. Who doesn't love pizza?!
In the spring months, a wetsuit may be recommended and are available to rent at our store.
