“Even the teenagers had fun!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 August 2014

We had a fantastic trip down the Indian and Hudson Rivers. Upon checking in, it was recommended that we get wetsuit tops ($5 each and VERY much appreciated) and sunglasses straps ($6 and unnecessary). Our guide, Lucy, was insightful and funny and took the time to find out whether we want to get into splash fights, swimming areas, etc... The river was about 4 feet and had class 3 & 4 rapids that were fun and challenging for us and our teenage girls. We arrived at 8:30 and were worn out and well-fed by the time we got back on the road around 4:15. This was a great family activity to end our two-week vacation.

“We Had a Blast!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 August 2014

Just a great, fun day! Wild Waters did a terrific job. If you're doing the Hudson Gorge, you'll need to be there around 8:30 to check in and get outfitted. We rented wetsuit tops for $5 ea. Water was about 3.5 feet, but we had a great ride. You'll hit the water around 10, lunch at noon, and take out around 3PM. Clean changing rooms and showers. Dinner is included. Pasta and salad. Our guide was Lucy. She was wonderful. We hit the line most of the time and she had very interesting stories of the river and surrounding areas. She knew her stuff. BTW, if you ever see a rubber ducky floating in the river, pull it up...she's under it :)

We'll be going back for sure!

Highly recommended.

“Fantastic Adventure”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014

We had an excellent time white water rafting. Our Guide, T, guided us safely after he evaluated our level of rafting. We had children with us, ages 12 and 15, who were safe during the trip. They were allowed to swim and jump off of a rock when the water was calm. He explained each part of the Hudson before we got there so we knew what to expect. You should not miss this on your visit to the area.

“Professional and fun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 July 2014 via mobile

Wonderful, fun, and safe. We did the all day Hudson package. Our guide "T" was great at judging what the people in the boat wanted to do. We didn't want to swim, we wanted to experience rafting and white water to the fullest. In addition our guide pointed out the constant natural features like rock formations, water falls and totally enhanced our day. Very professional team that made it the most fun I have had in a very long time.

“Awesome Adventure!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2014 via mobile

Our group of 8 thoroughly enjoyed our trip on the Sacandaga River. Most of us were first timers, including my 9 year old son. So this was a good first time trip. We loved our guide, Collin. He was fun, friendly, and knowledgeable. We can't wait to go back!
