Benji was a great raft guide! It was first time for some of us and it was so fun! Would do it again or even the more advanced ones.

Trip was great. Perfect level of rapids for our young niece and my pregnant wife. Our guide Allison was amazing, very personable and knowledgeable. Our entire group (6 adults and 2 kids) had a great time.

We went rafting on the upper New early July. As now-aged former whitewater canoe and kayak paddlers, we enjoyed a fun and scenic trip with younger members of the family. Our guide, Nick, did a great job of doing all the hard work taking us down the river, finding swim spots, and telling stories about the history of the gorge. (They were mostly true, with the exception of one very bad “Dad” joke.)

I would definitely choose this rafting company again.

Perkins and Crock were amazing guides. We learned a lot and had a blast. We stopped to drift in the river as well as jump off a rock. The rapids were nothing too intense and we were left wanting to go again. Scenery was beautiful.

We have done white water rafting several times before but it was the first at New River. Our family consists of 15 ppl in two rafts. Our guide Richard was super knowledgeable about the history of the river and had tons of jokes that made a hilarious and relaxing day. A shout out for George as well. Our children had the most fun day. West Virginia Adventures is a small outfit compared to many others in the area but they have a top notch operation...safety focus and super friendly. They do an amazing job and take extra steps to ensure we all have a great time. Highly recommended! Will come back to this company again in October to do the Gauley!!

It was an amazing trip. Rich was our leader who was so funny , well trained and knowledgeable. We were so glad to have him in our raft. I myself don’t know how to swim but Rich’s navigation of the raft made the trip so fun and easy. I highly recommended this company.

The experience was wonderful and I highly recommend going through this company. I had never gone whitewater rafting prior to this but the knowledge and experience of all the guides made this such a great experience. Our guide was Perkins and he made the trip so fun with his jokes while also informing us of the places to avoid, where to go if we fell off, able to answer any questions, etc. He knew so much about the history and the nature of each rapid. We will definitely be coming back!

Our guide Crock was amazing. He was extremely knowledgeable and my family felt very safe with him. The music during the trip was just an added bonus. The rafting was a ton of fun, and the awesome guide just added to the experience. I would definitely recommend this company, and I felt like when our rafts passed some of another big name company, they looked jealous at how much fun we were having!
