Yesterday, our raft guide was Jenna who made it seem like we've found a long lost friend. We enjoyed interactions with her as much as we enjoyed a day well spent... More

My girlfriend and I went on one of the best single day trips of our lives. We had never rafted before, so it was to be a new experience. They were so young yet super professional and knowledgeable guides. We did the Class IV rapids- 3 trips down--was exciting & little scary at same time, haha. Plan on making it... More

While we were based on North Conway, my husband and I decided to take a rafting trip with Raft NH located in Gorham (about an hour drive from our hotel). We took the Magalloway River Trip which involved Class III and IV rapids. As directed, we arrived at the shop at 8am to check-in and obtain the necessary gear. We... More

We planned our vacation around the opportunity for a whitewater ducky adventure and booked the Errol Rapid trip online. A couple of days before our trip, we were informed that the 4-person minimum had not been reached and we could cancel or change to Pontook Dam. We took the Pontook Dam trip in a raft and had a good time.... More

Raft NH made for a fun day trip. I chose the Pontook Dam Trip Class II and III and was happy with that choice because it was easy-going but still got me wet and gave a nice little workout. The guides were very friendly and knew how to show everybody a fun time. The trip also included a nice afternoon... More

Wow! This was my first rafting trip and I am dying to take another. Our guide, Sean, was both very helpful and very personable. The only thing I would change about this trip would be to spend more time in the river as opposed to the bus. I could have done at least one or two more runs!
