Hello Rafters! We are now taking reservations for the 2018 Rafting Season for June 30 – September 3, 2018. Head over to our reservations page to reserve your spot on the river! We look forward to seeing you this summer!

Truckee River Rafting is Tahoe's original raft company, family owned and operated since 1973. You begin your leisurely float in Tahoe City, along a peaceful stretch of the Truckee River, ending at the River Ranch Restaurant. Truckee River Rafting is a self guided raft trip offering commercial grade rafts (2, 4, 6, 8, and 10 person rafts) to spend the day on the river. The Truckee River Rafting trip floats you through tranquil stretches of scenic meadows, mountains and small rapids. Our Truckee River raft experience takes approximately 2-3 hours and we encourage you to bring a small cooler with snacks and drinks, please no styrofoam or glass, to enjoy along the way. Truckee River Rafting is fun for all ages (2 years and up) and sure to be a fun, family memory to have for years to come.
