Yes available in 2017!! Truckee River whitewater rafting trips just east of Truckee, CA. Closest Rafting to Lake Tahoe and Reno! This is a 1/2 day trip with 2 departures daily at 9:15am or 1:30pm. We meet at the Truckee River RV park a few miles east of Truckee off Highway 80 and will shuttle you to and from the river. The rafting trip is 7 miles of exciting Class 2-3+ rapids suitable for ages 7+ and non-swimmers. Personal Floatation Devices, helmets, paddles, rafts, and a professional river guide to help you maneuver safely down the river are all included. Cold drinks are served at the take-out and we shuttle you back to our meeting location. *** This is NOT the self guided float out of Tahoe City. This is an entirely different section of the Truckee River. ***
