Kern River Outfitters was great! The staff was friendly and professional. Our guides Ry and Koreen were top notch. The river was wild and high and I had a smile plastered on my face the entire day.

Hi Clint, Thank you for the note. Ry and Koreen are excellent guides and two of the nicest people I've ever met, so I'm happy to hear you enjoyed their company. The photos we took that day backup your statement regarding your smile too :) Best, Matt Volpert More

Rafted last year with KRO for a two day trip, and returned this year with friends for a full day on the upper Kern. Excellent guides and service, and a great day in the whitewater. Definitely recommend this outfit!

The season just started, and my daughter and I got a VERY early in the morning in L.A. to make it on time to Wofford Heights. We did an all day river trip. Kern River Outfitters from A-Z were excellent, we had an awesome time with amazing rapids, due to the large amount of snow melt this year, even though... More

We did the full day upper Kern and it was AWEsome...class 3 and 4's were so fun and thrilling! The provided safety gear and equipment was well maintained and clean, not old and beat up and stinky. The guides were knowledgeable, gave good instructions, and kept us safe. Prester was our guide and he was great! We did get tossed... More

Hi Christina! Thank you for the review. Our focus is always on safety and I'm glad to hear that Prester took excellent care of your group. Swims are infrequent but do occasionally happen which is why we diligently train on those scenarios. If you re-book, please let me know and I'll do my best to make sure Prester is on... More

This was an outstanding trip. We did the one day, class 3 and 4 rapids. Our trip leader, Dillon, was outstanding. We had an absolute blast. KRO loaned us wet suits (really necessary) and paddling wind breakers. By the end of the day, Dillon was steering us into amazing haystacks. Lunch was delicious as well. I would recommend this company... More

Went for a full day upper Kern this past Sat. Everybody had a GREAT time. We had Bill, Dillon, and Tom on our bus. They are very nice and accommodating, took safety seriously. The sandwich lunch was fresh, the fruits were sweet and tasty. Tom is our raft guide. He made sure we have the best and safe experience. I... More
