River is amazing. Constant action, beautiful scenery. Good equipment. However, poco I whitewater had TOO MANY people on group and one of the most RUDEEST guides I have ever met....guy loved authority and yelled at guests as if they were schoolchildren...he often forgot we were PAYING customers...we saw a group called whitewater adventure...looked like a much better outfitter on same...

My husband and I had never gone whitewater rafting before, but the staff was friendly and good about giving instructions and pointers as we went down the river. If you forget anything, they have everything you need there: bathing suits, waterproof pouches, water shoes, wetsuit rentals, etc. They even have an area where you can get lunch in a watertight...

My husband and I visited Pocono Whitewater on our 31st wedding anniversary, so you know although we are young at heart we are not young in body. Stryker, our guide was very knowledgable and patient. He didn't make us feel like we weren't up to the challenge. We had a great time paddling and swimming in the river. We hope... More

Ok, so to start off, I am not the most active person, but I was able to complete everything, so anyone can do it! First the negatives, the reason I only gave 3 stars was 2 reasons: 1: The "whitewater" portion is not really whitewater rafting. We even went on a dam release day, and there was hardly any rapids,...

The river was not very deep... however, the entire route is rocky so need to be careful while rafting and try to dodge the rocks for a smooth rafting experience. Co-ordination is the key. You take your boat on your own and there are 4 guides on kayaks among approx. 40 rafts. Initially we were little scared, but once we... More

I was very excited for this adventure. I have to say, the preparation and check in went very smoothly. In our personal group there were five of us. Overall, there were 50 people that participated in our event. Once the buses took us down to the river for boarding, we realized how crowded it really was. For over 50 people,... More

Very organized and tons of fun! I took my 15 yr old daughter and 3 friends and we all had a blast. It was like being back in camp. The guides are tons of fun and encourage cheering and water fights between the boats. It was a bit pricey, but considering it was a very full day with lunch included... More
