Family members and friends rafted the Upper Hudson River with North Creek Rafting Company on Sunday, Sept. 15, 2013, and from start to finish our entire group agrees that it was an OUTSTANDING experience. It is very clear that owners Becky and Nate Pelton love what they are doing and they thoroughly enjoy sharing the river experience with their customers.

Everything about the North Creek Rafting operation is top shelf from the well maintained high quality equipment to the personable and knowledgeable manner in which every question and request was handled.

Becky’s skill and knowledge as a rafting guide made our trip thrilling, fun-filled and safe. When she wasn't giving paddling commands Becky entertained our group by identifying points of interest along the river banks. We were served a delicious lunch including food that meet the discriminating needs of our vegetarian crew members. The hot chocolate was a treat enjoyed by all as were the humongous fresh baked cookies.

While we laughed and cheered our way down the river we were struck by the contrast with the quiet demeanor of rafters with other companies. We've already decided to return next year and there is no doubt that will raft again with North Creek Rafting Company.

My 16 year old son and I, a couple of rafting rookies, decided on going with the North Creek Rafting Company on their 17 mile Hudson River rafting trip last Tuesday. TripAdvisor had great reviews and they were right on the money. Nate runs a great outfit, and has all the necessary equipment (new and in great shape). Our guide John could not have been better. John clearly went over the rules and instructions, and while safety was his number one priority, he also allowed us to successfully attempt such techniques “surfing”, “spinning” and “flooding” – we had a blast doing so. In addition, John was very knowledgeable about the rivers and the surrounding area. Will definitely be back again next year!

We selected North Creek Rafting based on the outstanding reviews and we are happy to say that everything about the rafting trip exceeded our already high expectations. Our guides (Bazil and Nick) were very experienced and entertaining, the equipment provided was high quality and clean, and at 8.6 feet it could not have been a better day to take on the Hudson. From start to finish, our entire rafting experience was phenomenal and we look forward to future trips with North Creek Rafting. A hearty thanks goes out to Nate and his outstanding staff.

Seven of us went on a week end rafting trip last week end with NCR, and i can't really tell you how great of an experience it was. We started out saturday morning. Nate had a big raft full of gear, and there was the raft we where on. we rafted for a few hours then stopped to set up camp. They picked a beautiful spot on the hudson with a great scenic view. Nate served us lunch then set up our camp for the night. The guys never stopped. we ate the whole time, tents set up,15 gallons of drinking water supplied. We experienced some mild rain and in minutes they had a huge canopy up so we could enjoy our evenning dry. As my wife said"five star camping" Caught alot of fish, did some hiking. the next morning Nate and Jason where up making our breakfast before we packed up camp and finished our thrilling trip down the river. i can't say enough about the experience and look forward to taking more people with us next year.

This was the most perfect day on the river and will be a day our family remembers forever. Our guide was friendly, fun and very knowledgeable about the river, plus he educated us on the entire area including flora, fauna and geology. The lunch was delicious and everyone agreed the whole day was a blast. Can't believe we waited so many years to do this. I would recommend this North Creek Rafting to anyone interested in rafting in the Adirondacks! Hope to do this again next year.
