Cache Creek Guided Rafting – $89/person, 6 person min.
1. Contact us to RSVP
2. Pay Online

Winds through the Blue Ridge Mountains north of Lake Berryessa in Lake and Yolo counties, about two hours from San Francisco, and is considerably easier to get to than popular spots on the American, Klamath or Merced rivers. It’s been a rafting destination for decades, attracting first- timers and experienced boaters with its scenery, warm water, easy access, reliable flows and range of rides, from lulling, placid stretches to two Class III rapids. This is an excellent beginner run.

Rubicon Adventures is the only company offering guided whitewater trips on Cache Creek.

The area has something for everyone. This trip can be combined with a restful overnight stay at Harbin Hot Springs or visit the gaming resort of Cache Creek Casino.

    I’ve been on a couple river rafting trips with the team at Rubicon Adventures. The owner Bill Mashek is a super fun river guide and really takes the time to make sure you have a safe but awesome trip down the river. Depending on the package you purchase they’ll even cook and feed you well. We’ve brought our young kids with us and they had so much fun. They also do standup paddle boarding excursions on the Russian River which if you haven’t done yet is a blast!!! I highly recommend Rubicon Adventures for your next family day or company day trip.
