Kings River Expeditions

Covid-19 Update

KRE Family and Friends

We hope you are doing the best you can to stay safe and manage your way through this pandemic. As a family, we are sheltering in place, and thankful for the frontline folks out there taking care of people, keeping supply chains open and working on solutions. Hopefully we can return to some sense of normalcy sooner than later.

After carefully weighing the pros and cons, we have decided it would be best to cancel the 2020 season. We say this with a heavy heart. We have rafted through forest fires and extended droughts but don’t think we should try to work through this one. Email us any time for 2021 reservations. Your continued support means the world to us. Take care, have a safe and healthy summer and we hope to see you on the river next season!

Jeb, Julie and the KRE Staff
