Very well organized and safe. We did the dam release and were expecting more rapids. We stopped a lot to round the whole group together. Also, I wish they took better pictures during the trip. We only had 2 pics to choose from but good thing they were only $10 a piece. Also, a little tip: if you're thinking about going with someone older or have any walking issues, make sure you ask where you're starting from because we had to walk a mile to get to the part of the river.

My husband and I went with another couple friends . They don't start at the time they say but they are terribly thorough with their briefings and safety procedures are well met . All the staff know their job and are in complete control . We were first timers but felt totally safe . The rapids are enjoyable once you know how to sit and hold yourself you will love the experience and look forward to the Rapids :) you can ask the staff for any clarifications and they explain patiently.
Only complaint wd be about the lunch being so unhealthy! All junk food only! Wish they cd offer some healthy options .
The pictures at the end can be bought for 10 usd and 5 usd extra if framed.
There are lots of shops around where you can buy all related stuff too . A great place for a holiday !

Thank you for feedback. For future reference, the time you book is your check in time. We give everyone about 30 minutes from their check in time to get ready for their raft trip. Hopefully we see you again next year!

My family did the pirate rafting trip. Ages ranged from 4 to 60. The trip was very family friendly and easy for first timers to catch on. The guides were very organized and helpful and checked on groups who were having trouble and provided assistance. There was a BBQ lunch included in a nice picnic area off the river. The food was average and there wasn't much variety. The trip was advertised as a pirate adventure and I was expecting more of a themed trip for the kids. There was one raft of two girls dressed like pirates that shot water guns at the raft and that was it. Overall it was a good first time family trip.

Went this past Saturday with a large group, 8 adults 9 kids, for the family rafting trip. Everyone had a great time. The youngest kid was 8, and the water was never too rough, she even asked if we could do a higher level next time. The guides were fantastic and friendly. The level we did was great for first timers and kids, they never felt worried or got scared. If you can bring a water proof camera do, you will have a lot of opportunities to take pictures. We had some people bring water shoes, some rented the booties at the place, and some wore old sneakers, all worked well. The lunch was exactly as described,

Pocono Whitewater provided a safe, fun, and enjoyable day trip for me and my friend. We had THE BEST TIME on this trip (we did a "dam release" on a Saturday morning). The guides were EXCELLENT, the equipment was in perfect shape, and the river was absolutely beautiful. I was especially impressed with how organized and professional all of the staff were. I would come back here again with friends, family, students - anyone. A great value for the price. It was the perfect blend of challenging and enjoyable.
