Lickety

The lickety is a very fun filled, exciting, rafting trip down the Kern river that is great for all experience levels.  Putting in at the KR-3 power plant just above Kernville, we start paddling our way down river.  Hold on, unlike the theme parks, there are no tracks to connect to here. Just plenty of rapids to run, so expect to get wet! Never paddled before?  No problem, this is a great trip to wet your whitewater appetite on!

Double Lickety

If the lickety is not enough action to satisfy your whitewater hunger, might we suggest the "double lick."  Our guides will float you downriver teaching you all the necessary paddling skills you'll need.  However, don't be upset when you see the take-out approaching, as we're heading back up to do it again.  Time to test your skills and go big if you are up to the challenge on your second run.  This trips consists of two runs down the lickety.

All Day Lickety

This trip is a must for the true whitewater enthusiast.  We will start you off in the morning with two runs down the lickety.  After the second run, when you start feeling like you could just about paddle through anything, we pause for a lunch break.  Rest your tired arms and watch as your multi-talented guides suddenly create an extravagant lunch spread.   After your lunch break, we continue with two more fun filled water soaked runs down the lickety.  This trip consists of four runs down the lickety and lunch is provided.

Splashyak Lickety

Up for an adventure?  Imagine floating your own way downstream with a friend in one of our inflatable "duckies."  These sit you much lower in the water (resembling a canoe, instead of a raft) and get you twice as wet, letting you have that much more fun.. The guides will be in their own ducky and explain how to run each rapid.  Expect to have the time of your life on this trip!  This trip is offered only with water levels permitting, call ahead!.
