Had a great day rafting down the Lehigh River on Aug 1st. Temperture was perfect right at 80. It was a 6 hour 12 mile on a dam release weekend, so there were plenty of rapids. Had about 20 rafts in our group. Scenery was beautiful. We had a fun time. The area where we got in the river was... More

i read many review before for booking and many of the comments are true. there is a lot of waiting around, but some of it does make sense and other times it doesn't. Our trip was to the upper gorge and we need to be there by 9:30am and buses left at 10:00am. this half hour was great to get... More

The company books groups which are way too large and quickly become unwieldy. Our group was so massive, it took us two extra hours to complete the tour since we had to constantly stop and wait for stragglers. We started nearly an hour late, since the company wanted to herd in additional participants. We must have spent at least three... More

This was our third trip down the Lehigh River but we brought some newbies along with us. During planning we let them know, don't wear flip flops, expect to get wet and have fun. And we all did! We went on a damn release day so ran some class 3 rapids, exciting and exhilarating We were to be there by... More

This was our 2nd rafting trip on the Lehigh river, but our 1st with Pocono Whitewater. This was by far the better trip. We booked through The Inn at Jim Thorpe and enjoyed a 12 hour Dam Release trip through the Lehigh River Gorge area. Definitely doing this again.

Did the "Family Rafting" with kids ages 8 and 10 who had never been rafting. Definitely was easy, but perfect for them - some small rapids, some bumps, a little adventure and time to swim. Bring along water guns and have fun getting wet -- or you can stay dry if you choose. Stopped an hour and a half down... More

Pocono Whitewater has a great staff who was very funny and knowledgeable of the river. They also told us some really great history about the town of Jim Thorpe. However, our rafting trip had a total of 125 people! they did a very long safety presentation before loading everyone into 2 buses. They got everyone in the rafts and we... More

Loved our family rafting trip with Pocono Whitewater! It was a birthday celebration for our 16 year old twin daughters and 8 of their friends. We had a blast on the river, the scenery was beautiful, and lunch was included, which many places do not provide. The tour guides were great, especially Liam Kelly, who made the trip memorable with... More

In our 60s and this was our first whitewater rafting experience and it certainly will not be our last. Everything was well organized and, even with a large crowd the day we visited, we moved right along through the processing and staging. Everything was well explained for beginners and the actual rafting experience was just right for a novice! Guides... More
