What a blast! Exceeded every expectation. Between the accommodations, the equipment, and the staff, I'm not sure they or anyone could do better. Lots of competition up there, but would definitely choose CrabApple for your rafting trip. Request Jason as your guide! He was really cool, super friendly, personable and a lot of fun. Will do this again, soon!! Amazing...

This was one of my favorite adventures. The rafting was so exciting, our guide, Luke was the absolute best (considering he had to deal with 8 women). He was very thorough with his instruction. The cabin we stayed in was wonderful and very convenient and the restaurant/pub was great to have right where we stayed. The food after rafting was... More

We were a group of fairly adventurous 40+ ladies. Everything about the trip was excellent. The guides, the training, the weather, the river, the boats, the cookout afterward, and the overall crew at Crab Apple Whitewater. If I had more than two thumbs I would point them way up! Bouff was our guide and he was amazing.

We would like to thank all the staff at Crab Apple for a great day on the river. Our guide Luke was excellent and helped make our experience thrilling and unforgettable. The overnight stay was very good and the burger we had in the restaurant was the best we had on our 2 week trip to the U.S.! Very friendly... More

Really great day!! The website was packed with useful information. I called the office to ask for more details about the particular trip I was interested in and found everyone that I spoke to helpful and nice. I'm a nursing mother, so I asked if there would be an opportunity to pump during this active day of white water rafting.... More

We were there with other friends and we had a real good time. It was relaxing and they had heated pool which was nice and they have a big common area for the kids to hang out.

I went last year with friends and had an absolute blast!! We're going again in a few weeks and are so excited because we're doing a super trip where we go down twice in the same day!

Terrible rescheduling policy. Called to ask to reschedule a trip 1+ month ahead. The owner said that this is like buying a red sox ticket, once sold: no refund, and no rescheduling. I asked if it is possible to be used by a different person in the group for the next day if there is empty space. The answer is... More

This was my 4th overall trip and the second with my kids. We had a great time with our guide nickname "Money" and would recommend him and the team at Crab Apple for your next family adventure. We have some great pictures that we will display proudly at our home for family and friends to admire.
