Whitewater Rafting

It’s Time To Live… ALOT!

We’ve been running these rivers for years, and trust us, it never gets old. There’s just something about whitewater rafting that gets in your blood. Every paddle stroke is the start of another great adventure, and, we can’t wait to share it with you.

Are you new to paddling? Maybe you’re bringing along some youngsters? No problem! Check out the Upper New.

Want a challenge? We’ve got you covered. The New River Gorge is the reason we are here. It’s a Class V run that is great no matter what time of year, because it always runs, and it’s always different. Or, check out the Summer Gauley for our most challenging and diverse trip on the river.

And then… there’s the Fall Gauley. It’s a dam controlled run that is only guaranteed for 6 weeks in the fall with two runs… The Upper Gauley is steep, fast and intense (Not for beginners) while the Lower Gauley River is scenic, exciting and great for a first time rafter.

NEW RIVER GORGE RAFTING

Big, fast, playful and fun – the Lower New River is a whitewater roller coaster ride of towering, crashing waves. With rapids, including thumpers like The Keeney Brothers, Upper and Lower Railroad, Greyhound Bus-Stopper, and Double-Z, the Lower New offers enough thrills and adventure for any enthusiast. Known as “The Grand Canyon of the East”, the New River is of the oldest rivers in the world and winds through the 1,000-foot deep gorge at over a mile. Calm pools between rapids give you a chance to catch your breath, take a swim, and enjoy the awesome scenery and abundance of wildlife.
