“Incredible experience from beginning to end.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2013

This was an absolutely amazing adventure. We loved that it was not a huge outfit, but smaller run co. The two owners, Linc and Phoebe were involved in everything we did...we felt extremely taken care of. They were very fun guides to begin with, but were equally clear on the instruction and safety rules. We had our 10 year old with us, so those two key points (fun and clear @ safety) were big ones for us! One big bonus & I think - rare - for this type of business) was the food! They fed us with meals they made by hand and it was outstanding. We cannot say enough about what a positive experience this was in every way.

“Nicely Done!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2013

The title of this review, Nicely Done, is a direct quote from Linc, who we are delighted to say we spent the day with today [along with a nice family from Buffalo]. His use of this phrase will bring back memories of this great trip.

It is always a little nerve-racking to rave about what feels like a secret you have come across...for fear it will get so popular you wont be able to experience it again. That is how we feel about Square Eddy. Even the turkey wrap they packed for us was awesome. Simple, home made turkey, cheese and just the right amount of apple and crunchy lettuce. Even the kids loved it. We learned they were friends with the owners of Izzy's - - that was a good sign since we love going there when we visit the area. They were helpful and great with the kids. The attitude of Linc was so great, we might have thought it inauthentic but for the extraordinary relationship he had with all of the other guides.

A true local start up. THANK YOU LORI AND LINC. BE WELL, WE WILL SEE YOU AGAIN SOON!!! [hope you read this!]

“Hands down the BEST!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2013

Recently my husband and I had white water kayaked with private group down the upper Lehigh in PA, and could not believe the hoards of people bused in from several different rafting companies to also ride the rapids. When we were looking for an outfitter to raft the Hudson, we were sooooooo excited to have found Square Eddy- the opposite of those big rafting companies that we were looking to avoid. My phone call with Linc revealed that Square Eddy was everything we were looking for....was this company established just for us? We had to book with them....HAD TO!

We were lucky to get Linc all to ourselves on Tues, Aug. 13th's trip and take a smaller raft. He fitted us with wet suits, and safety gear. We were treated with the company of Linc's dad who was working that day with shuttle and I had a great conversation with him on our way to the put in.

At the put in, it seemed Linc knew all the other guides and they all knew Linc. There was such good vibes and Linc made us feel very comfortable and introduced us to all his friends! Being the only ones in the raft that day, we felt like VIP's. Besides the rapids, we had great conversation all day- so much in common! But nothing was as neat as our lunch break near a waterfall with a homemade picnic being served. Turkey wraps with garden veggies, and homemade baked goods. Life does not get better than this!

So...if I have not made it clear, we had the most exciting time on the river for the 17 mile trip. And just when we thought it was over, back at the "world headquarters" there was an EZ-UP set up with hot dogs, chips and adult beverages. What an awesome way to end our trip. Lori was there and the four of us sat and chatted for a bit. Truly, truly, awesome people, awesome outfitter, awesome experience and awesome value.

Thank you so much....can't wait to visit you guys again!

“Great Trip!! Highly Recommend!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2013

This was my first time whitewater rafting and it was amazing! Linc and Lori Phoebe, the owners of Square Eddy Expeditions, paid attention to every detail from the delicious lunch to supplying water socks to safety instructions. One of the things I really enjoyed was that it is a smaller company. Their main focus is on the customers having a great time and not just getting as many people down the river as they can. To top it off, Linc and Lori are just wonderful people. We all had an amazing time and want to make this an annual trip. If anyone is looking for a rafting company in the area, you really should go with Square Eddy Expeditions!!
