|Rafting the New River
Our New River Rafting Trips
|The New River attracts canoeists, anglers, rafters, kayakers, rock climbers, bird watchers, and a host of other outdoor enthusiasts from across the country. Rafters will be given a thorough river orientation and a detailed map of the river trip they are undertaking. In addition, basic rafting instruction can be provided to the novice rafter. Next, you will be shuttled to the launch site where you will embark on your adventure. Please note that the lengths of the trips listed below are an estimate of how long they may take you to float. How fast or slow you paddle and the river level are just two factors that can cause your trip to be shorter or longer. For all trips, there will be a negotiated pick-up time at the take-out.
Details: Our rafting trips are DAY trips only for the family
or group looking for a casual float in a more stable vessel.
These boats are not set up to fish out of, and NO fishing
from our rafts will be allowed due to safety/liability concerns.
