We chose the PM Express trip mostly because we live in Ohio and it was a better time of day for us with a 4 hour car ride. Next time I will definitely plan to stay overnight the night before the trip and do the entire day trip. Our guides were Stacey and Adam. They were both very experienced and...

It was amazing!! The whole package! They made us a great breakfast, took us on the best rafting ride ever with the best guide, Stacey!!!! We ate lunch on a rock in the middle of white water, we jumped from a cliff, we swam in calmer water, we surfed the rapids. Not to mention the scenery is breathtaking. We did...

After several years rafting with Fish at Cantrells, I can honestly say I look forward to it all year long! He knows the river like the back of his hand and we feel safe in his expert hands! The Cantrells are a wonderful family that go out of their way to make you feel at home. I would NOT recommend...

Our family did the 1/2 day Lower New trip and it was amazing on every level! Jessie worked with us to plan our outing and the price was right at 77.00 each!! We went on a Tuesday and didn't have to wait for each rapid. Our guides, Mike and Duncan, were GREAT and told us lots of interesting facts about...

We had a great time on the full day rafting trip. This is a small operation and you get great service without a large group of people. Cam was our guide and he was knowledgeable about the area and very entertaining. We highly recommend this rafting trip and company.

The entire Cantrell Ultimate Rafting team was efficient, friendly, and safety conscious. They made our entire day a pleasure as we ratted, swam and jumped of a huge rock. There were a lot of companies on the river but this one seem d smaller and I appreciated that. We learned a lot from our guide about rafting and the area's...

While searching for a whitewater rafting excursion for myself and my new fiancee (who had never been rafting), I was looking for a campground/rafting company in Wild and Wonderful West Virginia. While looking online, what caught my attention about Cantrell's website was that it looked and felt like a welcoming, local business. Indeed, it was. Cantrell's has everything you need,...

We had a great experience staying at Cantrell's House. It's a small facility with a few cabins, water/electric sites and tent sites. The bathrooms/showers were clean and in good working order. We stayed in a water/electric site and we fit just fine in our 39ft motorhome. Jesse, a member of the Cantrell family was so kind to us. This is...
