We had taken 11:00 am timeslot for a group of 24 people for an 8 mile rafting which they told us would take 3 hours. We did not get on the boat until after 12:!5. They had us waiting around for a while doing nothing, when we went to the shop, the staff told us to go from one person... More

Just got back from our second rafting trip with Pocono Whitewater. We took our first trip as a group of four in August 2015 and had such a great time that this year we invited more friends and came as a group of twelve! The dam release trips are a wonderful day on the river, great for groups of any... More

We went on 8/20/2016. We are a family of 4. Our kids are 4yr and 5yr. We had a blast. I was very impressed on how professional and organized the tour was. For having 2 little kids with us I was a little skeptical about how it would turn out. We did the family white water rafting. Our kids loved... More

My grandson and I did this both for our first time of whitewater rafting. We didn't know what to expect. My 15 yr. old grandson volunteered to be the raft captain, which meant steering, giving direction, and leading the group. We both had a really good time, especially my grandson who had a "blast." The staff were all friendly and... More

Family first; never been on the water raft. They provided lunch the kids had a ball. The guides very patient; areas for swimming down the river and a bit of whitewater throughout. Bring a water gun as the crowds played throughout the raft ride of fun! Then returned for a bonfire Would do this again.

My 11 yo daughter and I went on a whitewater trip last weekend. It had rained and it was a dam release day so we had good whitewater. The guides were awesome. We had a ton of fun. We had 5 people in our boat. The fewest I saw was 3 in a boat. Some boats had more than 7... More

We participated in the Dam Release trip on Sunday, August 7 at 8:30am. I recommend the early group because we finished at 3:30 or 4. I couldn't imagine being in one of the later groups and being on the river later. We had five people in our group which was one raft worth of people. We saw rafts with four... More

Had a blast on the river! It was my first time and the staff was friendly, accommodating and helpful. Doing the lunch stop in the middle of the trip was a wonderful option! We had a blast and it's a do over!! 1. You WILL get WET! Dress appropriately. 2. DO NOT wear flip flops or sandals unless they strap... More

This is how the begining of your day goes... - checks in/sign waiver - wait for your group to meet -meet with group to discuss trip -get on 10 minute bus ride, wearing life jackets, carrying battle and two buckets (cramped school bus) - get of the bus and...

We went on a gorgeous day so our experience was pretty awesome. When you arrive its a little confusing but just ask anyone what to do and where to go and you will get lots of help and smiling faces. We spent all day on the river. the rapids are not intimidating at all, just fun. we packed a lunch... More
