Raft Yosemite Valley and float through one of nature’s wonders. For a brief window each spring and summer the Merced River reaches a water level that creates a 3-mile self guided rafting float through Yosemite Valley.
Rafts can be rented at the Curry Village Recreation Center. Rafts hold four adults and are equipped with paddles and the mandatory personal floatation devices. The $31 per person fee covers one three-mile trip down the river, personal floatation devices for each person, two paddles and return trip by shuttle to the Curry Village Recreation Center. Rafts are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Reservations are not accepted.
Raft rentals in Yosemite National Park are operated by park concessionaire. For details go to: the Yosemite Park Rafting page.
