California Whitewater Rafting with WET River Trips


iVillage: The Women's Netword

Santa Barbara Rafting

Santa Barbara is several hours away from any whitewater rafting, but the beautiful drive to the mountains and the thrilling rapids make the car ride well worth it. From Santa Barbara, access Interstate 5 or Highway 99 and there are numerous options from class III to class V. The Kaweah and the Kings are the closest rivers, but the Kern and the Merced are not too much further.

About 4 Hours Away

More Than 4 Hours Away (but just a little!)

More Than 8 Hours Away (what the heck; fly in!)
