Great guides, very informative gave all the basics for what to do during the rafting tour. The guides go along in a kayak with the groups down the river which means you are in your own raft with your party or depending upon size you may be paired up with a smaller pair of people. Overall relaxing time...only did the... More

One cannot be in a hurry. It's a go with the flow kind of experience. Meet as a group, intro to the basics, travel to lift off point via bus, trek down a roadway & enter upon slippery creek waterway. Then the journey begins.slowly at 1st as you get your bearings. Those who talked during the intro are most likely... More

It was our first rafting trip and we were pretty excited , as there were not enough rafts present we were forced to sit with another group the resulting experience was horrible and they were constantly splashing each other and us in between with water , apart from that we had no knowledge about rafting and with no guidance to...

I'm sorry to hear that you did not have an ideal experience with us. It is important to note that we do tell people on the phone that the rafts fit 4 to 6 people. If you are a small group there is a chance that we will need to put you with another group as the state regulates the... More

Myself and 6 other buddies decided to do a weekend trip. We did their "paddles and battles" 2 day package. It was a great deal for both. Their customer service is excellent and are very friendly. The rapids are level 1/2.The instructors are cool and help. In the future we will probably go somewhere else for a bigger challenge. The... More

I thought the whitewater rafting was very fun and I had a great time, but if I didn't go with such a wild group of co-workers I don't think I would have had much fun with just friends. We went on a day when the river was pretty low so we didn't really see very many rapids. We mostly just... More

Loved it - just the right amount of challenge and thrill for our family. Kevin was a great group leader, all the guides were enthusiastic and helpful. The day was well organized and facilitated. Recommend :)

I have taken my kids here a few times over the years and it was fun when they were 10 and still fun as teens. 1. Company is organized, guides are friendly and professional 2. You will get wet and there will be water fights with strangers! Overall, everyone has seemed to have a good time. We respect people if... More

Thank you very much for the kind words and suggestions to other would be travelers. That being said please don't bring your car keys!!! So many people lose them all the time. The locksmith has put 3 kids through college on our parking lot alone! More

We did the family style whitewater. Perfect for our family which included 3 kids. We have never gone rafting before so perfect introduction. Very orderly, plenty of parking the day we went (9/3/15). The guides were great, very personable and helpful. They work hard, and should be tipped at the end. I know a lot of people took off without... More

If you are looking for a adventure, then Pocono Whitewater is definitely the place for you or if you haven't done river raft than this place is for you. We were 14 members all first timers and trust me until today none of us could forget this trip.

While I really enjoyed the white water rafting experience, I would not recommend booking with this company. There were so many rafts in our group that it created a major safety hazards, causing bottle necks and making it impossible to see rocks until they were right in front of you. Having 30+ rafts in one group is insane. You can't... More
