Whitewater Rafting with Crab Apple Whitewater
This program is currently unavailable. Click here to view all of our current programs.
Join us for the first ever field trip to Crab Apple Whitewater for a fun filled day of whitewater rafting. This beautiful rafting trip through mild whitewater (Class I & II with one Class III) is the perfect outing for families, friends, groups and youth organizations. Rafting time is approximately 2.5 hours with a hearty meal included after rafting. Meals are served dry and warm at Crab Apple’s riverside base camp.
Our Fife Brook trip starts out with a bang at “Hurricane Rapid” followed by bouncy rapids such as “Sideways Splash”, “Freight Train” and “Pinball”. Calm sections between rapids allow your River Guide to fill you in on local history and to enjoy the breathtaking scenery of the Berkshires. Part way through the trip our self-bailing rafts approach the day’s biggest rapid, “Zoar Gap”. The river suddenly narrows and drops for the fastest and most fun rapid of the day.
After safely navigating “Zoar Gap”, raft teams will enjoy optional team water fights and more rapids such as “Slam Dance”. When our journey down the river ends, we return to Crab Apple for a hearty meal overlooking the Deerfield River and an entertaining look at photos from your adventure.
