After a couple of decades at the helm of Turtle River Rafting Company Rick Demarest has chosen to retire and spend more time doing what he likes best, canyoneering and exploring nooks and crannies in the southwest.

In what might just be the biggest corporate merger in these northern parts of California, we’ve combined Turtle River and River Dancers and so, will continue to offer the same great trips, river expertise, fine food…and oh so cool river guides.

Rick and Ken, Turtle capitanos with Mark and Aaron, boss men of River Dancers.
