For the second year in a row, I spent a day on the river with Crabapple. It's just so cool and so much fun. THe guides are personal and competent. They create some team spirit. The river winds around and is lovely. A bit of exercise, lots of excitement, cool water, and then a great meal. What's not to like? Frank and Jen have been running crababpple for years. I hope I get to go back next year, too.

Thanks for the great review and comments about our family business. The Deerfield is so beautiful - more people need to get outdoors and see what you have seen the past two years. We love what we do and our guide staff is amazing - thanks for noticing!

We took our friend whitewater rafting with Crab Apple last weekend for her 40th birthday and had a blast! Our guide Dillon was amazing and ensured a good time was had by all! Will definitely go back!

What a great idea for a birthday weekend - rafting, camping and site seeing. Our part of Massachusetts is undiscovered heaven to many. Glad you loved the trip and the local area - saw your other local reviews.

We have rafted many times in many states with many companies and this was the best yet! The staff was GREAT, our guide, Mike, was great, the food after the trip was plentiful and tasty. The equipment was not musty or moldy like some other places! We will not raft with any other company again!

Wow, love this review. We work hard at being the best we can be, so glad you noticed things that make our operation different from others - good food after the river trip and clean, comfortable outfitting gear like PFD's and helmets. It's a simple thing - wash them daily! and everything will be OK, but some outfits are lazy!

We chose the 1/2 day Fife Brook trip (Deerfield River) for our first rafting experience and it was awesome! The weather and river conditions were perfect. Our guide Dillon was professional, patient (we ask lots of questions LOL!), enthusiastic and encouraging. We had a lot of fun learning basic skills, navigating between large rocks, spinning the raft and doing wheelies!!

The entire Crabapple crew was very courteous and accommodating. Lunch was provided as part of the trip and our group included a vegetarian and several gluten-free folks. The staff made sure there were GF sandwich options as well as desserts just for us! They also provided the vegetarian with a very fresh, large salad.

Would definitely raft with Crabapple again. Looking forward to a more adventurous trip the next time!

Nice review, thanks! We do what we can to make the river trip fun and accommodate any personal need like dietary restrictions. We love our rivers and we want to make them accessible for all to see. Glad you had a great time with Dillon and we'll see you in 2014 for the upper Class 4 trip.
