Sierra Mac specializes in Tuolumne River Rafting, Merced River Rafting and Yosemite Rafting Trips. We were first the outfitter on the Merced and Tuolumne Rivers and the pioneer in opening Class V Cherry Creek to commercial rafting. Founded in 1965, Sierra Mac is a locally based, family-owned business. We are located just 15 miles outside Yosemite's northwest entrance on Highway 120, perched above the Tuolumne River canyon. Our experienced guides are privileged to host your Yosemite rafting trip. Thanks to winter storms and ample snowpack we are expecting another exciting season for our Yosemite rafting trips. Escape the crowds and connect with yourself, your friends, and the rivers of Yosemite.

Not sure how to say it, but something was missing. Marty was great and everything was fine until we arrived at our meeting spot on the day of our 1-day Tuolumne trip (on time!). When we arrived, we were told that we were waiting for...More

Our half day tour on Merced was very nice. The guides were very experienced and friendly. We enjoyed getting into the water to take a swim during the ride. There are a few Class 4 spots, but in general it is not a very scary...More

Tuolumne river is a wild, scenic ride, especially in high spring water. Sierra Mac's guides were exceptional. They were knowledgeable, experienced, and fun. Lunch was also fantastic. You can't go wrong with this company.
