Our world-famous Lickety-Split raft trip is far and away the most popular and affordable Class 2-3 whitewater rafting run available on the Kern River. It is full of enough excitement to challenge just about everyone. Before your river trip, a Sierra South professional river guide will provide you with a trip overview, paddling gear and a paddle talk. Then it’s anchors away for three miles of jam-packed action on Kern River rapids such as Little Mama, Big Daddy, Straight Shot, Freight Train, and Ewings.

This is our most popular trip. If you’re itching’ for a longer Kern River whitewater escapade, try our Lickety- Blaster. First, “get your feet wet” on a Lickety-Split run. Then, head back up river once more to put your newly honed whitewater skills to the test on a second Lickety Split run.

For a whole day of whitewater fun, try the best of both worlds! Come rafting and
inflatable kayaking all in one day. Enjoy a half-day of rafting and then after lunch enjoy another half day on the water in inflatable kayaks. See Whitewater Merit Badge Book-prerequisites are a canoeing or kayak merit badge and a swimming merit badge. Lunch is provided by Camp Whitsett and arrangements need to be made with them prior to the trip, so that lunches can be ready the morning of the trip. You must bring them down from camp with you. We will provide a cooler to keep them fresh.
