7 Ways To Save Big on Whitewater Rafting this Summer

Great Trips for Every Budget.

It can sometimes be a challenge to plan great activities on a budget.  We’ve put this list together to show how to raft for less and still have a great time.

Half Day Trips. Half Day trips are a great way to get out on the river and have some fun.  Not only can you save on cost but is an excellent option when you cannot commit to a full day of rafting.  We have two trips that each run the upper and lower sections of the South Fork American.  You still get the excitement and the best parts of the South Fork without the full price.

Sundays & Weekdays. Rates vary depending on which day you raft.  Our prime day is Saturday and therefore, rates are higher on Saturday.  On most trips, by rafting on Sunday you can save an average of $10 per person and by rafting on the weekday you can save between $20-30 per person.  Along with the savings, there’s the added bonus of more flexibility in scheduling your trip.

Weekly Specials. Each Season we have weekly specials like “Merced Monday” or “Turbulent Tuesday” where you can save per person on the Middle Fork American  or The Merced, just by rafting on a Monday or Tuesday.

Web Specials. If you have some flexibility on the date of your rafting trip, our web specials are an excellent option.  Visit our website, under Rafting Trips, click on Web Specials.  We list several of our trips at a discount when you raft on specific days.

Bring a Group. Group trips are a blast, excellent for families, parties and team building.  When you bring 12 guests, the 12th rafter goes free.  You can either choose the free trip for one person or you can also distribute the discount of the free trip across the number of guests, lowering everyone’s per person cost.

Family Specials. Bring the family and save.  On select days in June through August for all one and two day trips, for each paid adult guest, a youth guest rafts for ½ price.

Make it a Holiday Trip. Holiday getaways are even better when you save.  Spend Memorial Day, July 4th or Labor Day with ARR on the river and get 10% off the regular rate.

There you have it, seven ways to plan a quality whitewater adventure at our most affordable rates.  In addition to the above, we offer discounts through local businesses we partner with such as The Cary House Hotel.  we’ve always got specials going so be sure to check out our website and social pages (facebook and twitter) frequently for current promotions.
