NY Rivers Set to Offer High-Adventure Outings ...
Our rafting centers in New York offer trips on the Hudson, Black, Moose and Salmon Rivers. These are great outings, ranging from easy Class II whitewater to the kind of hang-on-to-your-hats Class V action you often see on TV. Ask our reservationists to recommend an adventure just right for you and your group!
What's next ...
After a great day on the river, we're often asked "what's the next step?"
We enjoy answering this question, because there are so many great choices...
* a highwater Spring trip on the Lehigh (Class III)
* a summertime Hudson River Gorge trip (Class III+)
* a summertime Black River Canyon trip (Class III/IV)
* a springtime Hudson Gorge trip (Class IV)
* a springtime Black River trip (Class IV+/V)
Or, for more Class II/III alternatives, a summertime visit to ...
* the middle Moose River, Old Forge, NY
* the Salmon River, Pulaski, NY
We look forward to hearing from you, and helping you and your friends pick the perfect "next trip."
