Whitewater Rafting on the Black River
Dexter, New York
The right rafting trips ... at the right prices ...in the right locations!
Plus...Our Aerial Zipline Adventure, exclusively at Whitewater Challengers!
The Black River Canyon, near Watertown, New York, is a rare whitewater gem ... an unusual warm-water Mecca, where summertime rafting is as good as it gets anywhere. The narrow canyon forces the river through a constricted passageway where boulders and ledges turn the fast moving water into a maelstrom of whitewater foam and fury. Before or after your river trip, be sure to check out our new zipline Adventure, right at the Rafting Center!
Come during May and June for the highest flows and most powerful whitewater. This is a hang-on-to-your-hats rafting trip, where teamwork and strong paddling are the key. A summertime rafting trip is a real fun-in-the-sun beach-party-style river adventure. The whitewater is still exciting, and the canyon offers idyllic coves and eddies for swimming, snacking or just plain relaxing.
Every trip includes an on-river snack and a scrumptious apres-rafting cookout!
