We can't control dam maintenance, but we're determined to have a great day, no matter what! So glad you joined us. We look forward to seeing you again under better circumstances. and yes, the dam has been fixed and seems to be in fine shape.

Really glad you enjoyed the aerial course. We just added this a few years ago, and it's more and more popular every year. Rafting is still our mainstay; we hope to see you on the river this year!

“Bucket list!”
Reviewed 28 September 2013 via mobile

So I wanted to see what this white water rafting was all about and the WhiteWater Challenger Company did not disappoint! What an amazing time we had going down the Hudson. Our guide Mikey was the best. Very safety oriented, yet fun. And extremely skillful at getting us in the right position for the best rides on the rapids. We really lucked out with the weather...sunny, cool, blue sky and gorgeous leaf color! You can rent all the gear from them, and they provide snacks along the way and a hot meal at the end. Check it off my bucket list...but will definitely return to Whitewater Challengers. There are several other companies that do this, but we are glad we chose this one.

We love our guides! You're right; they are the best. They love the river, and they love sharing it with the folks who visit us. Hard to call it "work" when you're having so much fun. Really glad to hear that you'll be doing this "bucket list" item more than once!

“Awesome Adventure”
Reviewed 16 July 2013

This was our second White Water Adventure. It was an Awesome Adventure with Rob. We were confident the whole time. His knowledge of the river kept us safe. It is definitely a doable 3-4 and not boring as the LeHigh was when the dam was closed. The wraps were a good snack mid way and the Chicken, salad and macaroni salad hit the spot at the end. We had a perfect day weather wise. Registration was easy and orderly. We bought the photo package which was totally worth it. Rob told us that last year a paraplegic went down the river. They made a special seat for him and he helped the people get back in the raft.
