I have been using Cantrell's for my Whitewater Rafting course trips for a number of years now. They have always been more than acommodating for the special needs, and issues of a large group like mine. Most of my students are first time "rafters", but some of us are "seasoned" paddlers. The staff and guides do an excellent job at... More

I have been been on the New River with other companies...and none compared to the experience we had last weekend with Cantrell's. My wife had never been rafting and booked a trip out to celebrate our anniversary. We are so glad we found Cantrell's and will come back again (already planning a trip this September). We stayed in one of... More

As three college students, we stopped in West Virginia on our road trip for our first white water rafting experiences. Even though we lacked rafting experience, we took a tour with class I-V rapids because of our ages and swimming abilities. The ride proved thrilling and the scenery was picturesque. Our experienced guides Adam, Stacy, and John Henry were all... More

My sister and I had never white water rafted before, and had an incredible experience with Cantrell's! Nancy was super accommodating to our schedule, and even went so far as to adjust the start time of our trip to make it more convenient for us. My sister is a vegan and I'm a vegetarian, and they made sure to have... More

These are the real underdogs of the gorge who truly care about giving you the best New River Gorge experience possible. Our guide was Stacy who has over two decades of experience and a plethora of background knowledge of the surrounding history. You would be mistaken to hire any other crew. no regrets!

I was invited last year and re-invited this year to come along with a large group of guys who have been coming here for many years white water rafting. Great guides who make sure you are safe and have the experience you want. Staff is very friendly and go out of their way to make you feel at home.

Again Nancy and Richie went above and beyond for our rafting trip. From the moment we got there till the time we left we were treated like family. Nancy and Jess greeted us with a smile and a hug, Richie made us an awesome dinner ( Nancy's breakfast was outstanding also) and Fish got us down the river twice with... More

This is my 4th time with Cantrell's. Each time surpasses expectation. The owners are very personable. They had dinner with our group! Accommodations are clean. The guides are top notch. Shout out to Professor Stacey for 2 great runs down the river. All their equipment and rafts are top notch. If you want a personable experience I highly recommend Cantrell's.... More
