About Adirondack Rafting Company The Rafferty Family would like to welcome you to the Hudson River Gorge! As an Adirondack Rafting Company, our goal is to provide a very entertaining and safe day on the river to each one of our guests. We’ve organized an extremely skilled team on the Hudson River Gorge who are very familiar with the Adirondack Mountain region. Our NY rafting guides have many years experience in Adirondack white water rafting and are well educated with the ways of the wilderness environment where we work and live. All of our guides are licensed by the State of New York and certified in first aid needs. Adirondac Rafting Co. is located right where your trip begins, no long bus ride for us. Adirondac Rafting Co. has a comfortable rustic Lodge with full changing facilities. We run the highest quality and most modern equipment available in the white-water business. Our self-bailing rafts are considered to be the finest on the river. All of our river gear is comfortable and maintained to our high standards At Adirondac Rafting we share a love for the outdoors year round whether we are involved in the winter with the skiing world or out for a very enjoyable day on the river. We look forward to the opportunity to run this great river with you. See you on the river, The Rafferty Family

Sorry for the late response. Prices are $89 per person. We ask that guests arrive at 9am, and we're usually done around 4pm depending on the water level.
