Beat the Heat and Wet Your Feet

OLY 6611The summer heat is cooking up the action on the Youghiogheny!! The Yough (pronounced "Yok") is dam released guaranteeing great whitewater action. The dam releases every Friday and Monday. Starting on June 23rd the dam will begin releasing Saturdays. Making it a three day whitewater weekend! Our Saturday trips are quite popular so if your thing is to escape the crowds we would recommend catching the Monday or Friday release.

If high action isn't your thing, the releases open up some beautiful sections of river. Take the entire family out for quality time on the river. On Fridays, (soon to be) Saturdays, and Mondays, we have two float trips; either in the morning or in the afternoon. The morning float starts below the Deep Creek Dam and flows through the gorgeous Yough canyon. In the afternoon, we float from Friendsville down to the Yough Lake. Enjoy a few riffles, swimming, and beautiful scenery. Both of these float trips are a great way to introduce young kids to the joys of the outdoors. With the bountiful wild life you are almost guaranteed to spot some kind of critter.

Savage River

Awesome day on the Savage river. This trip never disappoints, with solid class 3-4 whitewater for 5 miles and road side shuttle this is a true gem in the whitewater world. We started the day with some chilling news of downed trees in the bigger rapids and certain doom if we did not remove them. So off to work with the chain saw and 2 hrs later the trees were gone and the fun began again. We were able to complete two runs before 2:00 pm even with the delay for the logging operation and what a great day we had. Beautiful sunshine and warm temps were enjoyed be all.

The next release is scheduled for July 1 2012 so mark your calendars and give us a call as this is one of the best wave ride trips in the area and sure to be one you won't soon forget. With only 3 releases per season you have to catch this one when it happens.
Give us a call 800 477 3723 and we will deliver a great day on the river.

Whitewater Season is here

2011 Precision Rafting Expeditions whitewater season starts in early April with some great trips on some of the more exotic whitewater in the area.  We've had a good winter for precipitation with decent snow fall over the winter and now good periods of rain.  The groundwater  table is very full which should make for a nice high water start to the season.

The Upper Yough season will start on April 15 2011.  There is always the possibility of earlier releases depending on rain fall amounts and lake levels. The Saturday Upper Yough season will start on June 18 with whitewater on every Saturday until the 2nd Saturday in September.
Check the Current Events Calendar for the full schedule of releases.

Big Sandy trips when ever we can as this is a hard one to catch but so worth the wait.

We are looking forward to Cheat season. The annual Cheat River Festival will be Saturday May 7 2011.  Cheat Narrows season will start up in June.  This is a great Inflatable kayak trip if you want to give kayaking a try for the first time.

The North Branch of the Potomac will have dam releases on April 16 - 17,  April 30  - May 1,  May 14-15, and May 28-29 2011.  Super Fun whitewater for all.  Great first time trip.  This is a really fun Inflatable Kayak trip too!
