I decided to forgo the big whitewater companies, and go with the family Cantrell. Best decision ever!! Our guide, Stacey, was a natural on the water. She was knowledgable about the area and its history, as well as knowing the river perfectly. She guided our boat effortlessly through the rapids of the lower New River, getting a perfect line every... More

We chose Cantrell's as our rafting guide for a bachelorette trip. There were 8 of us on the raft with Adam! He was such a great guide. Gave us lots of info about the river and rafting. They provided a HUGE lunch. A variety of options for sandwiches and sides and there were plenty of vegetarian options. I am so... More

Took my family with my 15 year old daughter and her friend as well as my son who is 12 down the New River. Our guide, Stacy, did an amazing job of taking us on an exciting rafting trip as well as informing us on all the history of the areas we passed through. It was the first rafting trip... More

Cantrell is a friendly family owned company! They are great at what they do. We had a great trip with them. The guides were very knowledgeable, and made sure we had a great time. We will definitely use them again.

Cantrell's is a great experience; from their campsites/lodging, wonderful food, staff, guides and rafting experience. They have a great onsite bar that has great bands playing on the weekends. This was a Father's Day present that was well worth it. Kudos to this family owned and operated company!

We went with this company based on the reviews and we definitely made the right choice. This family-run business may be the smallest outfit offering rafting on the New River but they are the biggest in terms of service, experience, and fun. Eddie was our guide and he knew every twist, turn and rock in that river and also provided... More

After reading many reviews and deciding that we wanted Cantrells based on their excellent reviews and that we didn't want the big commercial places based on the fact that they ship people down the river like a herd of cattle... I can say that we made the right choice! If you want guides that are incredible, knowledgeable, funny, caring, adventerous,... More

Smaller rafting company with personal touch. Immediately felt welcomed and relaxed. Within 30' everyone was calling me by my first name. Very professional guides and great rafting. Guides Stacy and Adam enjoyed the day as much as the patrons. I'll be back soon. Tom Rice/Lexington,KY

I love rafting and have had experienced it around 8-9 times in different places. Out of all the previous trips, I had the best time this spring with Cantrell Ultimate rafting. These guys are friendly and know how trace the route and steer the raft for most fun.
