Guide Escorted: Our traditional adventure. Everybody participates in the fun of paddling and guiding your own raft while our professional guides accompany your group in kayaks along 7.5 miles of the scenic Youghiogheny Gorge and through 22 exhilarating rapids. Experience the pride of accomplishment when you "beat the whitewater" while your guides provide direction and assistance through this class III section.
Captained Raft: Be conservative or bump up the excitement with a guide in the raft. They will help you create your rafting memories by controlling the raft and teaching you about the history and beauty of our mountains. Our Captained Raft river trips are available for an additional cost of $100.00 for up to 5 persons.
Inflatable Kayak Option: Challenge the river one-on-one! Take a 1 or 2 person inflatable kayak or PPB (personal paddle boat). Your guide will be in a kayak along side you for your entire adventure and will provide directions, encouragement and assistance throughout the trip. The Inflatable Kayak Option is available for an additional cost of $10.60 per person.
Reverse Pedal/Paddle: A White Water Adventurers exclusive! Energized by the river and looking for another activity?
