We enjoyed paddling the river and battling water fights with other rafts. However it was clear that the trip was a very abbreviated version due to water conditions. We should have been told this before paying full price. We actually were told we had to have lunch first instead of stopping part way through our trip so we had hotdogs... More

Awesome experience.. 12 miles, 5 hrs, almost 17 rapids of class II and III... great guides.. fabulous friends.. good climate and nice water. What else you can ask for.. But few things to note - Even though i say guide, its not like each raft has one.. there are only 3 of them for the entire pack.. One lead the... More

The Lehigh River Gorge is a great Class II-III whitewater adventure. The trip is about 12 miles and takes about 5 hours on the river. My family and I have done the river trip previously but this was our first experience with Pocono Whitewater Outfitters. Compared with other outfitters, this company really fell short. First, the put-in. Normally (at least... More

The experience was excellent. You don't have to be a swimmer since everyone gets a life vest. The staff is wonderful. You also get to enjoy the scenery. If you don't like to get wet this is not for you. People bring their water guns to make sure you get wet. No experience necessary although it is helpful.

The rafting itself was fun!!! The guides were knowledgeable and made the trip fun! We booked through our hotel. The cost was $35 and that included lunch. They picked us up and took us to the check in point. It seemed like chaos. No flip flips or open toed shoes allowed. We bought shoes, but nobody informed us that water... More

We went yesterday (8/16), 3 adults and an 8 yo girl. Our 'time' was 115pm. We were early, but it still took us almost 90 mins to get checked in and on a bus - over 200! It was a gigantic 'cluster' (if you know what I mean). Had to be 25 rafts trying to get into the water, people... More

Myself & 13 others had a blast whitewater rafting on 8/9, our guides were awesome! I highly recommend this place for loads of fun! My suggestion for others make sure you figure out what people are going into raft! Can't wait to go again!

I took a gamble on our annual family vacation this year and I we won! Instead of the beach I decided to take everyone whitewater rafting. This was a fantastic trip! The staff at Pocono Whitewater was friendly and informative. Emphasis was on fun with safety being important. The weather was not great. I scheduled it a month in advance... More

Went rafting for a day away from Great Wolf Lodge. About a 30 minute drive and well worth it. We brought our three kids - 9, 12 and 14 - and had a blast. The staff was very knowledgable, accommodating and fun! We had Yoo ("Yo!!!") as our guide, and he made the trip fun from start to finish. Even... More
