We've done several whitewater river trips in the past so I wasn't expecting much from a manmade river trip. Was actually quite surprised by how much fun it was. Our guide, Mike, did a great job; even though we circled the route 4 or 5 times, it was different and exciting each time by doing it differently (forward, backward, spinning,... More

We went up last minute on 8/13 at 10 am to inquire into the possibility of rafting. We were told there were 2 spots open at 11 am which was perfect. I recommend making a reservation if you really want to do it and if you are a larger group. 6 people to a boat and many bigger groups were... More

We took our 20 year old kids up to try out the duckie adventure and they had an absolute blast. Guide is required if it's the first time and then it's about 1 1/2 hours of trips down the rapids. There are a lot of rafters to contend with but it all works out. My big complaint is that as... More

Having gone white water rafting many times this serves like a safe way for everyone to get a little intro to kayaking in white water. It worked out great. Kids loved it... Mom learned that she will never kayak on a real river. Not cheap but it's a good time

The white water rafting experience on a man made track was great. Perfect introduction to rafting for my 10 year old.

There was 9 of us in the group, 6 wanted high adventure and 3 wanted minimal adventure. We all got exactly what we wanted. With it being summer and no rain around, to go out on a river and whitewater for the first time would have been rough. It was great going to a more controlled environment. The safety speech... More

This was our first time white water rafting. We were in a ray with another father/ son teamand we all got along great. No one fell out thanks to our guide Peter who I would totally recommend,especially if it's your first time. The rapids were considered class III and both Peter and the father said it felt pretty similar to... More

We thouroghly enjoyed our river rapid adventure. Our guide instructed us and within an hour we were enjoying the river course as if we were experts. Highly recommend this when in the Deep Creek lake area.

So we had a rainy day that put sitting on the boat off the table. I wasn't sure I wanted to drive to do rafting, so when I realized this option I decided to give it a shot. It's right on Wisp mountain, so couldn't be more convenient. I'm a long-term whitewater kayaker, and I wasn't sure how fun or... More

This was such a fun experience, and I was totally out of my comfort zone (I can't swim). We were so fortunate to get a fantastic guide, Lane, to take us through the course. My adrenaline was pumping, but I felt very safe during the experience. If you can, ask for Lane as your guide!
