We purchased our tickets through Groupon for a sidetour Whitewater rafting adventure that was hosted by Sourced Adventures. We had a GREAT time once we were on the water, and I would definitely go whitewater rafting again, but probably not through Sourced Adventures. We went on class II and III rapids during a dam release weekend. The weather was great,... More

We went on a 6 hour trip, class 2-3 on a weekend that was supposed to be a dam release weekend. The river was extremely low, which made for a less exciting ride and lots of opportunities to get lodged on rocks. Which we did, a lot. It was on one of these rocks, that by another raft striking ours,... More

Great experience for a first timer doing whitewater rafting. Great for groups and family. Our group did the class 2/3 rapids and they weren't to crazy where you would fall off your raft. The only scary parts are when you get stuck on the rocks and you have to figure out how to get yourself out of them. It took... More

Went with my husband to celebrate my 50th birthday. There were 92 people in our group. We thought that was a lot but once you finally get in the raft and see all the other tour group right there also, you realize that the river traffic will be like sitting on the Garden State Parkway on a Saturday afternoon. We... More

I was very frightened and planned to shop while my husband, son and in-laws went white water rafting. Well, my sister-in-law convinced me to do it. I was now unprepared - no swimsuit and no lunch. I bought a shirt there to wear and decided to get wet! I would eat my son's yogurt and extra nuts I packed for... More

A group of us just went this weekend for Memorial Day and we had a blast. There were several guides with us along the way. They were very knowledgeable and helpful in helping us paddling along the big rocks. Would definitely do it again. We did zip line for an additional 10 bucks. Although that was fun, I don't think...

Just my daughter (age 20) and I (age 43) reserved a day of rafting with Whitewater. Class II and III rapids for beginners. We had a great time. We enjoyed the guides who seemed skilled at what they do - esp. Zach who was also thrilled to tell us about other attractions in the area, local lore, and general "PA"... More

Went rafting last weekend on the last trip of the year. It was a 13 mile run with decent rapids. The guides were helpful. We had the perfect size group going down the river. I would think it could get too large. The wet suits and gear were a nice rental. The day would've been very chilly without. The only... More
