At the ages of 66 and 62 we absolutely loved our first whitewater rafting experience. Precision Rafting is a highly professional company. I was slightly nervous being a first timer and taking on class IV and V rapids. Roger was very thorough with his safety course. Lane was our guide and was fantastic. He meticulously guided us through the Upper Yough. I felt safe and confident after the first few rapids and was able to really relax and enjoy the experience. We had to do our part and follow Lane's instructions , but what an awesome ride! This company is top notch. If you are considering taking on the Upper Yough, definitely consider Precision Rafting.

My family went rafting this past Friday on the upper Yough and had to split into two boats (3 and 2). Warren and Haze were our guides. We had a great time despite (or because of) the very technical and rigorous rapids. Unfortunately, my 14 YO daughter fell in more than a few times and was quite shaken and banged up toward the end. Haze was great with her and very serious about safety. My only advice would be to really consider the confidence level of your group before taking this on. My daughter was a bit nervous and had an injured ankle, both of which contributed to her falling out of the raft numerous times. She says that she will never try class IV or V rapids again, but I say, “never say never.” The food and drink at the end of the ride is a very nice touch. There is a photographer who goes along with the group and takes photos throughout the trip down the River. We paid $70 for photos of our two boats and can’t wait to see them!

We had a fabulous trip! Lane did an excellent job communicating what to expect and how to react on this challenging river with Class IV and V rapids. All six of us, aged 20-60 had a blast. I was nervous and wondered if we were up to the challenge. I will say you don’t need to be an athlete, but you do need to be in reasonable shape. Due to the dam release, you are not paddling all the time. But when they say paddle, you need to paddle! It helps to have a good center of gravity and the ability to crawl back into a boat if you are fall out. The trip took about a total of 4 hours, including the ride up to the put in point. The first 30 minutes was a leisurely ride through beautiful country. The next two hours plus was an exhilarating ride through the rapids. I can’t saw enough about how Precision Rafting approached the safety aspects of our trip on the Upper Yough! They had safety boats and kayakers in position as each boat hit the rapids. This is a narrow river so the boats are smaller. We had one person from each boat in our immediate party take a dip and the guides and safety team were on them and had them back in the boat in seconds. Highly recommend this trip!!

This trip is an adrenaline pumping experience. I've been on 10 rafting trips in various rivers in West Virginia and Colorado and this trip was the most thrilling by far. We rafted on 4-17-21 on a cold day and had a blast. Precision Rafting is a highly professional operation. The Upper Yough is a difficult, technical river, but we felt safe the entire trip due to the competence and care of the guides and the support kayak team. We fell out at the National class 5 rapid and were quickly rescued. I never felt in danger because as soon as I popped up, a kayak was there to support me. Also, our guide Scott was fantastic. I highly recommend Precision Rafting.

Loved the experience! I am afraid of getting into water as I do not know how to swim but the entire team of Precision (from owners to the guide Jeff and photographer) were so friendly and supportive! Special thanks and kudos to Jeff! My kids keep talking about his champion rafting skills! They took excellent care of all rafters, particularly minding social distancing and following all safety norms during this crazy Covid conditions! It was a very gorgeous day weather-wise and and we had a perfect, adventurous rafting experience! You guys rock!
