We had perfect weather for our rafting trip. The Hudson River was flowing and so were the good times of experiencing mother nature first hand! Our guide was great and a fun person to learn from. They also took great pictures of us and we needed to have them! Will be going rafting with A.R.O. again and trying out the... More

This was only my second time rafting, so I was a little nervous. The crew at ARO are professional and knowledgable. Our guide,Rick, was great, telling funny stories and provide some local history about the river and the general area. You will not be dissappointed. We are planning on going back in the spring.

We had such a great time. I felt so safe as this was our first rafting trip. The staff are so friendly and professional. They know the river like a best friend. Cannot wait to go again!

Had a blast on the Hudson. The weather wasn't the best but that didn't matter at all. Our guide Mark knew how to hit the rapids just right and maximum the thrills and the fun. He also made sure we knew the names of our raft mates/teammates. We had to act as a team as soon as we got the... More

Our guide Dylan was very good! The customer service before arrival was very good. After arrival, there was a slight wall before the hospitality arouse but eventually, the rest of the staff broke down their self-imposed barriers.... This experience was good but I recommend close discussion with the staff to verify the level of rapids that you desire experiencing.

A+ experience at Aro. First we got suited helmets and floaty vest. Safety instructions and how to react to scenarios followed. They incorporated the safety part with the kids on the trip which was cool. Our weekend was the most busiest weekend of the entire trip. I can tell the guides not only look out to the folks on the...

My husband and I were visiting the Thousand Islands for a quick getaway. I wanted to do something exciting and fun and this did not disappoint. Our guide Andrew was FANTASTIC so fun and engaging. I was the only female in the boat and he was attentive to that. He made regular checks to ensure everyone agreed before we attempted... More

It was a busy weekend - dress up weekend on the Hudson River. Lots of outfitters and perfect weather. Booked at the last minute so to speak - chose Adirondack River Outfitters and loved it. Chet was an outstanding and knowledgeable guide. It was his 998th trip down the Hudson! Got the pre-raft safety talk and headed off to the... More

My family and I had an outstanding experience on the beautiful Hudson River Gorge yesterday, largely due to the fact that Dylan was such an amazing and professional guide. He had an intimate understanding of the river, and he displayed wonderful leadership abilities. Dylan was relaxed and calm, yet always in full control of his surroundings. I was particularly impressed... More

This was an awesome experience! ARO had a great staff who were fun, knowledgeable, and very efficient! The Black River had some crazy spots but also had some great scenery and relaxing spots. I plan to make many more trips with the company in the future, as the entire day was great. We had a lot of boats out for... More
