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

Pocono Whitewater runs a 5-star operation. I have done a bunch of whitewater trips in the Lehigh Valley area over the last 30 years, with the most recent trip last weekend. Pocono Whitewater is the best organization on the river. Their guides are fun, informative, and professional. They tell you what to expect up ahead, keep everyone reasonably together, allow... More

What a great day of family fun on the Lehigh River! The guides, especially "Striker" and "Kickline", were very enthusiastic and helped make the adventure tons of fun. Add to that the "pirate" raft equipped with squirt guns, the buckets of water being playfully dumped from raft to raft and the mid-point stop for a barbecue, and you have a... More

We visited Pocono Whitewater on Sunday. Honestly, Whitewater rafting is not for me ( we kept ending up in trees somehow ), but the staff, from parking to check in to guides are all amazing. They are polite and happy and helpful. The guides Kaitlin, Greg , John and Kyle ( thank you Kyle fro rescuing us ) are very... More

I have to say I was a bit nervous when my husband booked a river rafting trip for the family (9 and 7 year olds at the time). I was a little more nervous when I found out the guides were not accompanying us in the boat! But the 3 guides were helpful and professional and safety definitely came first.... More

As soon as I pulled in it was apparent that Pocono Whitewater is a factory. Too many people for not enough staff. The wait time was ridiculous: whether on the water or not we were delayed. The one star is for the patient, hilarious guides throughout the seven hour journey, which about four and a half hours were spent waiting... More

Went rafting with a bunch of others from uni and it was such fun if I lived there I would go every week! It is well organised arrangement they've got on, effectively managing the large number of people. The large number actually adds to the fun, in my view. The crew(staff) is great at guiding people away from the tough... More

Great experience rafting with this outfit, and just as enjoyable as my first time probably 12 years ago, so I am convinced they are a consistent and reliable place. Booking was easy, and the telephone staff friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. Parking was busy, but well organized and everyone got a place. Changing rooms were clean, but unfortunately no shower for... More
