Our family went on the Funyak trip and everybody loved it!!! Mom, dad, pre-teen girl, 1st grader and grandmother - age span 68 years.
The staff was very polite and helpful and welcoming. Jennifer was a super competent and relaxed guide, the river is beautiful, the little rapids were fun and not scary and the amount of time was just right. We did the trip on a weekday, so it was a small and relaxed group. Will definitely do this again next year.

Thank Petra N

Thanks for the nice review. We love to see multi-generational families having fun together. Cool Grandma and grandkids on the river with big smiles - how can you beat that! So glad it was a great day. See you in 2014.

While I was here I got to meet a bunch of their guides, including Jen and Frank who run it. This is a great family business that is professional and safe, but also really fun. This was my first rafting experience, and I can't wait to go back on a more aggressive trip, they got me hooked! The funyaking looked fun too, and I heard a rumor they might be starting a new activity soon. I'll definitely be keeping an eye on these guys for my next adventure.

We just took a group of Boy Scouts up for camping at Mt Greylock State Forest (http://www.mass.gov/dcr/parks/mtGreylock/) on Saturday, then rafting on Sunday @ Crab Apple. They have a ton of staff to help, very positive & professional. We had two groups - older kids could do the Class III & IV, and younger to do the Class I, II, III. Everyone had a great time. We are planning to go back!

Thanks for the great review from a smart scout leader who took advantage of a program we offer for scouts - older boys on the Class 4 rapids and younger guys on Class 2-3. This is perfect so each boy has a great experience at a comfortable and exciting level. Thanks for the review and thanks for volunteering with the BSA!

I recently took 11 of my 5 th grade students rafting with CrabApple. The staff was friendly, professional, and I never had any doubt about safety on the trip. My students had so much fun that they have been talking about it for days. I would highly recommend this trip for any group.

Matt - It was so great to have your school join us for the first time this year! I know this 5th grade group was the test group for bigger trips in the future. The kids ad chaperones all seemed to have a great experience, so we look forward to the entire 5th grade joining us in 2014!

Thanks again for trusting Crab Apple with your first whitewater trip.
