Float trips are the perfect way for young kids, older adults or anyone ready to enjoy a scenic ride down a mellow section of river. These trips are on moving water. Float trips are great way to try rafting for the first time! Beautiful mountain scenery and fresh air helps invigorate and rejuvenate the spirit. We use rafts and or IKs (inflatable kayaks, duckies) to enjoy these trips. Be prepared to relax and enjoy mother nature at her finest. The most popular float trip is the Power Plant to Sang Run trip. All of our floats are very mild. All float trips happen in the AM but during the early part of summer we do offer a short PM Float with easy rapids and waves great for kids. This is a great way to enjoy some quality time with family and friends in the great outdoors.
You tried the rest now try the best! Action whitewater trips are the trip for anyone who loves a challenge or a thrill and sometimes the occassional spill. These trips start with class 3 rapids and go to the class 5 action rapids. These trips are not for the faint of heart or those who really don't want the thrill. Action whitewater trips are done in 4-6 person rafts depending on the river and the water level and will always have a guide in the boat. These trips are usually full day trips and they offer plenty of whitewater. All trips are fully guided and have a safety kayaker that will accompany the group for added safety. All action whitewater trips include a pretrip safety breifing so our guests are fully aware of how to handle any situation that may arise. These trips are lots of fun and very exciting. Anyone who is looking for a natural thrill and is in decent physical condition can do them.
Our easy whitewater trips are the Cheat Narrows and the North Branch of the Potomac. These both offer easy whitewater which is the place to start. Both trips are great for young children, first time rafters or anyone who is ready for a little excitement and a fun time on the river! These trips are usually class 1-2 rapids and sometimes depending on water levels will have a couple of class 3 rapids. All of these trips have guides in the rafts with you and can be done at most water levels in rafts or IK's (inflatable kayaks or duckies) we try to fit the size of the raft to the water level of the day for max enjoyment. All trips start with lots of instruction and water safety breifings. Easy Whitewater trips are fun for the whole family and a great way to start your rafting experience!
These trips are the next level for the rafter who has really done it all and wants to go to that next level. Not your typical whitewater trip as we do these trips on rivers that don't get rafted all the time. These rivers are the very special places that we would go on our days off and usually they are in more of the remote areas that are still left. Our extreme river trips are wilderness trips with no crowds and they are done in small groups and small boats. You won't find a more exciting trip than on one of these rivers and with breath taking scenery, exhilerating action, big rapids and powerful currents these river trips will truley test your skills. Most of these rivers are natural flow and depend on mother nature so check the guage page and the weather then give us a call!
