Owner description: About Adirondack Rafting Company The Rafferty Family would like to welcome you to the Hudson River Gorge! As an Adirondack Rafting Company, our goal is to provide a very entertaining and safe day on the river to each one of our guests. We’ve organized an extremely skilled team on the Hudson River Gorge who are very familiar with the Adirondack Mountain region. Our NY rafting guides have many years experience in Adirondack white water rafting and are well educated with the ways of the wilderness environment where we work and live. All of our guides are licensed by the State of New York and certified in first aid needs. Adirondac Rafting Co. is located right where your trip begins, no long bus ride for us. Adirondac Rafting Co. has a comfortable rustic Lodge with full changing facilities. We run the highest quality and most modern equipment available in the white-water business. Our self-bailing rafts are considered to be the finest on the river. All of our river gear is comfortable and maintained to our high standards At Adirondac Rafting we share a love for the outdoors year round whether we are involved in the winter with the skiing world or out for a very enjoyable day on the river. We look forward to the opportunity to run this great river with you. See you on the river, The Rafferty Family

We had an absolutely great time. Great experience on the water and all around. Our guide was terrific and there was constant action with rapids and swimming holes. I'd do this again in a second.

Had an excellent time on a Memorial Day wknd outing. Dan was a great guide - fun, positive, good leader, made the day enjoyable for everyone. So low-key and helpful, so talented at what he does. Was absolutely exhausted that evening - a heckuva workout. Can't wait to do it again! The wetsuit is a must, moving seats is a good idea, and jumping off the rock froze my nads but a lifelong memory.

Laid back and super friendly. River was great for our 9, 10, and 13 year old kids. Knowledgeable guide, esp. about local scenery & history. Would have liked fresh fruit with lunch and water bottles in boat.

This was one of the highlights of our trip to lake placid! The equipment was well maintained, the staff was nice. We were provided life jackets, helmets and paddles but due to the temp that day, we were able to rent full wet suits for $7. Our guide was very entertaining and helpful. I brought my 11 year old daughter and she had a great time. Overall, fun and would recommend taking the trip!

Absolutely flawless from start to finish. We had arrived a bit late but we were able to get out to the river quickly with a informative safety session prior to getting on the bus. Our guide Allie was a ton of fun, professional and encouraging. My brother tried taking a ducky down the river by us, where he was guided on how to take each rapidly safely and where he could have a little more fun. The lunches were delicious and homemade by one of the staff (he roasts whole turkeys for the sandwiches) and the area we stopped for lunch had a great waterfall to visit while we digested. The river is beautiful and it was an impressive 5 hour day from beginning to end. We had pretty good timing with better rapids than usual given the ridiculous rain the ADK has been getting. Overall I will be doing it again but maybe on a ducky this time rather than the raft. They did mention overnight trips which we also might partake in. Excellent value as well!
