My friends and I did the biking/marathon rafting trip this weekend. Saturday was biking. Check in was easy. We were fitted for our bikes, shuttled to Rockport and we were on our way. The ride was a 2% downhill grade so it was pretty easy....More

Thanks! Sounds like you went rafting at our Black River location in Dexter, NY where the river offers awesome class 4+ rapids at certain times of the year. We're glad you had a great time and we hope to see you again soon.

Well organized. Very friendly guides. No problems with equipment. Groups are fairly large and sometimes the whole group has to wait for individual boats - understandable but when its a large group this is more likely to happen. We saw a bunch of other companies...More

Thank you for writing. It's unfortunate when Mother Nature turns off the spigot, and river levels make it impossible to raft on the more challenging sections of the river. The effect of this can be that all the outfitters concentrate their guests on the one...More
