The magic of a river trip and the fun of knowing everyone with you.

When you book a Private-Charter Trip with ARTA you get an EXCLUSIVE trip for your group. Not only do you have the luxury of sharing life-long memories with friends, families, and co-workers, you can customize the trip to suit your group’s interests: more hiking, layover day, all-vegetarian cuisine, whatever. Tell us what you want and we can probably make it happen.

The maximum number of spaces available for each river varies according to agency regulations and ranges from 10 to over 50. The minimum number needed for a private-charter trip varies based on the river and the season. If you don’t have the minimum necessary, you can still get a discount by signing up as a group, or you can call us (209-962-7873) and see if there are alternatives.

Private-Charter Groups pay the Group Rate (10 – 15% off). As the Group Organizer, all you need to do is invite others to join your group; they will create their own sub-reservation, get their own account, fill out their own forms, and pay their own invoice. It is remarkably easy. Call us and we can help you find the perfect trip for your group. 209-962-7873.

All of the guides on my trip were fantastic. They were very fun and enthusiastic and created an environment where everyone could enjoy themselves to the fullest extent, from the 92-year-old ex-river guide to my seven-year-old sister to my brother and me messing around in the double duckie, everyone had a blast.”
