This is a very strenuous and intense activity. However, our group did have a blast. It was a thrilling and exiting trip! This was our first whitewater rafting outing, but it will not be our last! Though there were only couple of guides for the entire group, they did try their best (and very good at it) at keeping us... More

We really enjoyed our family rafting adventure. We were a bunch of beginners and a little worried that it might be too much for the younger kids, but it was perfect! Our guides were friendly and very helpful! We can't wait to try the dam release day next year.

For those who are interested in the gist of it. We went on the family style rafting with our two daughters, 9 and 15. It was fun, and the guides are professional and skilled and took care of us when we didn't know what we were doing on the water. We had three guides for about 15 or so boats?... More

We had taken 11:00 am timeslot for a group of 24 people for an 8 mile rafting which they told us would take 3 hours. We did not get on the boat until after 12:!5. They had us waiting around for a while doing nothing, when we went to the shop, the staff told us to go from one person... More

Just got back from our second rafting trip with Pocono Whitewater. We took our first trip as a group of four in August 2015 and had such a great time that this year we invited more friends and came as a group of twelve! The dam release trips are a wonderful day on the river, great for groups of any... More

We went on 8/20/2016. We are a family of 4. Our kids are 4yr and 5yr. We had a blast. I was very impressed on how professional and organized the tour was. For having 2 little kids with us I was a little skeptical about how it would turn out. We did the family white water rafting. Our kids loved... More

My grandson and I did this both for our first time of whitewater rafting. We didn't know what to expect. My 15 yr. old grandson volunteered to be the raft captain, which meant steering, giving direction, and leading the group. We both had a really good time, especially my grandson who had a "blast." The staff were all friendly and... More

Family first; never been on the water raft. They provided lunch the kids had a ball. The guides very patient; areas for swimming down the river and a bit of whitewater throughout. Bring a water gun as the crowds played throughout the raft ride of fun! Then returned for a bonfire Would do this again.

My 11 yo daughter and I went on a whitewater trip last weekend. It had rained and it was a dam release day so we had good whitewater. The guides were awesome. We had a ton of fun. We had 5 people in our boat. The fewest I saw was 3 in a boat. Some boats had more than 7... More

We participated in the Dam Release trip on Sunday, August 7 at 8:30am. I recommend the early group because we finished at 3:30 or 4. I couldn't imagine being in one of the later groups and being on the river later. We had five people in our group which was one raft worth of people. We saw rafts with four... More
