very professional and helpful guides, closest to the Lehigh Gorge SP access point in Jim Thorpe, which is very helpful after a long Big Time Class3 rafting trip, longest distance covered of 12.8mls.

This is exactly what it needs to be for people new to the river, or with small kids. We have two boys, seven and ten, and both loved it. Just enough rapids on the family trip to keep everyone interested, not too rough so the parents don't get nervous, and plenty of water fights and drifting / swimming down the... More

The Town of Jim Thorpe is a fascinating blend of high-end works of art, Huge church steeples, historic mansions, delicious food, a fascinating history, and incredible views. The town was named for Jim Thorpe, a super athlete of his day. It is also a horrifying look at a shameful part of our history: the virtual enslavement of those who worked... More

We took the shortest raft trip with two inexperienced 11-year-olds and we all had a Lot of fun. First off: All the staff were friendly, energetic, and helpful. The facilities were clean and Not overcrowded (on Labor Day Weekend, no less). Even the transport buses were clean and didn’t have that funky river stink. More importantly, the buses were waiting...

We were briefed before we started our journey in the river and I felt so safe and secured. Mike not only taught us technics but also... More

Jim Thorpe River Adventures provided a fun day of whitewater rafting while we were camping in the area. They really focus on safety here so it's suitable for beginners and families with young kids. Before you begin, life jackets are handed out and wearing them is mandatory when you're on the water. A safety orientation is also given to emphasize... More

This was our group's first and last rafting trip to JT Rafts in the Poconos. We were celebrating my 29th birthday and were looking to have an enjoyable and stress free day. Instead, we were treated like 3rd graders being told stop every 20 minutes, paddle in single file and listen to endless instructions. Things didn't start smoothly as the... More

Jerry and his guides were professional, efficient and completely organized. They were relaxed and funny, but with safety first. They made this experience just wonderful. We'll be back!!

What a wonderful outing we had. The 12 of us ( 8 adults, 1 teen, 2 preteens and one 8 yr. old ) couldn't have had a better time. After donning our life jackets and photo op-ing, we gathered around our head guide AJ for safety instructions, gathered our bail buckets and headed to the bus. During our 20 minute... More
