Guests meet their guides at the check in area, issues life jackets and helmets, then prepare for transportation upstream to Confluence, PA to begin their rafting day. Trips are run in 4 to 6 person rafts with guides accompanying the trip (not in the raft). While this section is mostly flat water, it does require paddling. Everyone is expected to paddle. There is plenty of time to check out the beautiful river gorge and plentiful wildlife. A snack lunch is provided. Upon reaching the take out area in Ohiopyle, guests are required to walk a few short blocks across town to our check in area.
