About MRA

Mountain & River AdventuresMountain & River Adventures (MRA) opened on April 1, 1989. With only three boats, a handful of guides and an old yellow van to shuttle customers, the dream began. In 1995 Mountain & River Adventures expanded its operation by offering camping and meals, which include a more full-service adventure menu, to guests. Another expansion in 2006 opened up the entire stretch of the Kern River to MRA.  MRA is committed to helping maintain and improve the outstanding qualities of the natural environment along the Kern River and within all of our operating areas.

Raft trips are not only fun and exciting, but they are also a chance to learn about and enjoy the great outdoors and the breathtaking beauty of the area.  MRA guides will include information and history about the area and river etiquette while paddling down the river.
