We did the whitewater rafting trip down the Dryway section of the Deerfield River. Staff was professional and made our trip a great time. Kim our guide was really great and repeatedly made every effort to ensure we were having a good time. This was our first whitewater trip and it will not be our last. The equipment was top notch, clean and new. The snack and meal afterward was a great addition to the day. The only complaint was that it ended too soon, I was ready to go 4 more hours. Thanks to everyone at Zoar, especially Kim.

My boyfriend and I went whitewater rafting on the Dryway yesterday. We had an amazing day. The river was beautiful and the rapids were fun after the power companies released water from the dam. Everything ran smoothly. Our guide Bob was awesome. Made a huge difference because we also had 4 other really nice people on our raft. The snack offered on the river was more than we expected. The equipment was all new and clean. The lunch afterwards was surprisingly good and homemade. The weather was a bit cold. They did have wetsuits and jackets for rent. Would definitely recommend this outfitter if you are planning on whitewater rafting in Massachusetts. Try to sit in the front of the raft if you are up for it.

The charming girls will take great care of you as you zip through the trees! Very comfortable for beginners. If you like the outdoors, it's a great activity.

We went on a two-day mini vacation with Zoar - ziplines and white water rafting. Everyone in our family, which included two kids ages 12 and 16, my husband and I had a great time! The staff was very friendly, safety conscious but also focused on fun. I would definitely recommend this for others.
