Middle Fork American River: Tunnel Chute (Class IV+ Whitewater)

Tahoe Whitewater Tours, Middle Fork American River: Tunnel Chute (Class IV+ Whitewater)

This wilderness 17-mile run offers some of the best summer-long advanced whitewater in the state. Rapids start out from the get-go with a fast splashy rapid called “Good Morning”. Rapids continue as the boats soar over the beautifully lined river bed filled with white quartz veins slicing through grey granite and dark limestone. The trip ends with more high adventure rapids as the river gradient steepens for an exciting finish. Steep drops await, technical boat maneuvering is a must, as you and your crew jet through the rapids. This high adventure trip is catered to guests looking for a little more action. Due to the nature of the trip, children must be 13 years old and strong swimmers to participate. 

Everyone Paddles and should be in good physical shape (weight limit 250 lbs.). Previous whitewater rafting experience recommended. Includes lunch, transportation, equipment, and guided trip. Discounts for groups of 12 or more. Available April – September. Tour length is 17 miles/all-day trip. 6 people per boat plus a guide.
