We had a big family reunion between siblings and cousins to relive many of our teen years whitewater rafting. The group grew to 28 people willing to do the Lower Youghiogheny rafting trip. Many of us had been rafting on that river many times in our youth and many were trying the river for the first time. Our grand adventure occurred on Monday July 25th! The staff are friendly and patient with the newbies. Two of the six rafts we had paid for had ended up flipping or occupants were flipped out of the raft, which contained majority of the first time rafters. There was only one complaint that I have about our awesome adventure. One of the rafts was 2 adults and 3 teenagers. Only one teen was able to stay in the raft and struggled to get everyone else back into the raft after they got tossed. This caused the teens to want to get out at the middle of the river at the bail out spot with an injured adult from our group. The 2 adults from that raft wanted to stay on the river since they paid to be on the river but the guide in charge would not allow them to get into the 5 other rafts from our group. The 2 adults were forced off the river while the rest of our group, 22 people in 5 rafts continued on down the rapids. Our overall experience was awesome and we will return next year for redemption! The 2 adults who wanted to stay deserve a full rafting trip too. Beware that this company will take you off the river even if you paid and want to stay.

Thank you for your review. I have passed your comments on to the General Manager for review with the staff. Our guides take great care with the welfare of our guests. Unfortunately, sometimes that means making the tough decision that a guest's day must come to an end. We look forward to seeing you on the river again.

I used to rent whitewater rafts from White Water Adventurers back in the 1980's and planned a reunion trip with friends and family on the Lower Yough. Their rental prices were extremely reasonable, the staff was helpful, and they made the whole process very easy. Charlie did a very good job with his safety talk -- mixing vital safety information with enough humor to keep people's attention. He was low-key and yet inspiring. The online waiver form is a bit of a pain and probably asks for more confidential information than is necessary for its purported purpose. That would be my only suggestion.

Blake knew the river well! He told us what path we would be taking around rocks and over rapids and made sure to make that happen. We went in early April, so Blake also made sure that we didn’t go for a swim! We were the only raft on the river, and we saw many beautiful ducks and an osprey. This was a great rafting trip, and I highly recommend Blake and this company. Blake also gave us directions to great hikes in the area!

We did the class V's on the Upper Yough, go big or go home. We had a group of 13 adults, all friends with a few of us who have actually rafted before, but most of us were noobs. Went mid September and lucked out with perfect weather conditions. During our pre-brief, we were told to look forward to fast water, precision turns and a lot of rocks. It was all of that and more. At the time there was a river fest going on so there were also other rafting outfitters and a million kayakers showing off their skills boofing off rocks. You could tell the experience and skill level from our guides compared to the other outfitters because they knew when to turn and what to do if you got stuck. These guys knew exactly what they were doing. Unfortunately, we witnessed other rafters struggling with their guides, which were part of a different outfitter, eat it hard on a couple of rapids. But the combination of being able to do one pushup and having a skilled guide, makes your trip that much more enjoyable. Out of 5 rafts I only fell in, but at that point it felt great to get in the water and our guide Brian was so quick to retrieve me that i couldn't enjoy my swim. I could not have been more pleased with this outfitter and their guides, Brian, Tommy, Steve, Guy with red helmet, guy with crazy hair. I think I only got two of those names correct. If you are hesitant thinking this is too scary know this, the hardest part is the bus ride out, on the curvy roads of the Allegheny's (Steve took us the scenic route)! This trip lived up to my expectations and more. Great experience, great guides and good memories, I would recommend this outfitter to anyone!

I rented duckies (single person kayaks) for the Middle Yough and the trip was awesome! The check-in process was seamless and the staff were extremely nice and helpful.

If you need to change into water appropriate gear, you want to stop by the guest services building, which is about a 3 minute walk.

Before departing, you receive a safety briefing and pickup your gear at the shop. Special shout out to Max, one of the shop hands that went out of his way to get me setup with the right gear and had such a great and upbeat attitude.

When our departure time has come, a large group of us boarded an old yellow school bus for a 25 minute drive through the beautiful Pennsylvania mountains. During the drive, I chatted with Don, the bus driver, who has been driving buses for quite a while and had no problem making it through the mountain. He gave me some great tips about the area; I kinda wish the whole bus would have been able to hear his tips and advice.

After we got off the bus, we received some additional safety details and then it was off to the Yough. We dropped our kayaks in the water and ventured down the 4 hour scenic trip. Pro tip - think about gloves if you like to paddle aggressively or risk blisters. This is a great trip for folks that want to leisurely drift down the water with some occasional rapids to keep from sitting back too far to relax and enjoy. It's beautiful and I can't really put it into words or photos, so you'll just have to see it yourself.

I didn't interact with the guides much outside of the safety briefing but they were pleasant but clear and direct around how to have a safe and fun trip.

The only thing I would change about the experience was having to carry the ducky up a fairly steep hill after paddling for about 4 hours.

The route with class 3-4 rapids obviously is why people come from so far to Ohiopyle. I can't compare outfitting companies, but WWA was superb in every way. Our guide made my 12-year-old daughter feel part of the gang. Both he and the guides of the other two rafts in our outing were terrifically informed about the characteristics of each set of rapids. Although I had imagined originally trying this without a guide, and am so glad now in retrospect that we had one, and such a great one.

Our guide, Dan, was amazingly talented in guiding us down the Lower Yough. Not only was he an expert at his job and concerned for our safety and fun, he was highly entertaining and knew much about the area. I learned more than I thought I would about whitewater rafting and we had the best time.

Our group was 2 adults, 2 teens (as well as another couple), in an 8-person raft on a guided 7.5 mile trip down the beautiful and scenic Yough. Class II-IV rapids, and a lot of them for a short trip. We had a blast. Tommy was our guide and he did an outstanding job of explaining all the dos and don'ts, keeping everyone engaged and entertained, and steering us into the best lines through the rapids. The mid-April water and air were both 45 degrees but it wasn't bad at all with the wetsuits and splash jackets they provided for a few bucks extra. And nobody swam! We'll definitely be back!

This was our first white water rafting experience, it was the 6 of us- 3 adults & 3 girls, ages 11 and 13. We did the lower Yough classic rafting tour – fully guided. Mostly class II and III rapids, with several class IV rapids, which were really fun. But I do want to add that someone in a group right ahead of us got very seriously injured. Our guides handled it great – we all docked on the side of the river, and they all got out and assisted with the rescue. They were very professional and very calm. So beware of the risks, but as long as you understand them, it's a lot of fun and I would recommend this river and this particular r group.

Loved the lower yough tour very much. Our tour guide, Jake, was exceptional. He provided a lot of great entertaining stories, and guided our raft to exciting waves. We had two people fall of our boat and almost got the boat stuck. Jake helped us navigate through these hurdles safely and confidently.
