Celebrating 35 years of ACE

In the beginning

Even though we've been braving West Virginia's wildest whitewater since the 1970s, ACE began guiding rafts in 1980 for fellow adventurers. (It's hard to believe 35 years have gone by... Happy Birthday to us!)

Since our humble beginnings, we've partnered with other rafting companies like NARR and Wildwater to grow into 1,500 acres of awesome fun with dozens of adventures.

No matter what size group or level of difficulty you feel comfortable trying, we have just the right trips to satisfy any taste. As one of the original outfitters in the area, we attract and train only the best guides who share our same passion for the great outdoors. Check out our owner, Jerry, guiding the Gauley recently and back in the 1980s...

Celebrating 35 years of Awesome Adventures 

Show us your ACE face 

Until recent years with digital photography, the old-school film photographers used to rush back to develop and process slides before the rafting trips returned; now we gather after trips to watch DVD's on our big screens! Even though the process has changed, the rivers and woods have remained just as awesome as ever. 

Whether we're zipping through the trees or surfing rapids, the photo opportunities and memories made at ACE are endless. We always enjoy looking through old photos from the past 35 years, especially those from our customers... so... SHOW US YOUR ACE FACE!


To celebrate our birthday we challenge those who have vacationed with us over the years to share your best "ACE face" via Facebook, Instagram or YouTube by simply tagging your photo or video with the hashtag: #MyACE


Every month we will choose our favorite #MyACE faces to share across our social media! (More fun ways for you to help us celebrate throughout the year will be surfacing soon!!)


We're having a party

You're officially invited to join us on May 15 to celebrate our 35th Anniversary!
