We went for the full day Lower New river trip and had a terrific time. I like that Cantrell is a smaller company as we were going down the river with just one other boat. Guides were super competent and made sure that everybody was having a good time. Late July water was not terribly high, but we had a... More

If what you are looking for out of your white-water rafting trip is to be treated like family and have a personalized experience with the most experienced guides in the area, then definitely go to Cantrell's Ultimate Rafting. From the first phone call, Nancy will have you feeling like family and you will be on a first name basis with... More

Cantrell offers amazing adventures AND the most seasoned guides on the river. Skip the big tour companies who hire kids that only work for the summer, and go with the pros who really understand rafting. Our guide (Stacy) grew up on the New River and has served as a guide for over 20 years. Everyone in our boat had an... More

I was convinced by a friend to try something new and do their day long Lower New River rafting trip. So we geared up and made the trek to West Virginia. From the hospitality of the staff/management, knowledge of the guides, and just overall friendly and accommodating vibe we experienced throughout our weekend stay, I must say I was quite... More

Went down the new river with Cantrell. They're one of the smaller companies that do rafting trips, but have been in business for a long, long time, and do a great trip. We did the half-day trip, and had a great time. We were the only raft going down the river with them on the day we went, so we... More

We had a group of 12 that did the self guided tour. It was a well run operation from the phone calls to Craig to the guides informing us of what to do. The landscape is beautiful and it is well worth the cost to participate. We had kids age 7 to adults age 70 and it was fine for... More

We stopped in Fayetteville to go White Water rafting and had such a great experience. I booked with Cantrell because they are a smaller company and they specialize in rafting exclusively. We decided to book a half day excursion as we were on route to Florida and it worked out perfectly for us. My kids 12 yrs and 16 yrs... More

Had an excellent trip today with Cantrell Ultimate Rafting. Guides Josh and Stacey did a wonderful job piloting the rafts, taking us surfing and the hike to the waterfall was a great extra bonus. Had a blast and highly recommend Cantrell Ultimate Rafting to everyone and the next time we come back we will definitely book with them.

My husband and I decided last minute to book a rafting trip while passing through West Virginia on our way home to Wisconsin. Nancy was great about letting us know what packages they had available and was very accomodating. We decided on the 2 night package with an all day rafting trip, including a fantastic and plentiful breakfast, lunch on... More
