$119 for a whitewater rafting package for two (up to $210 total value)
- Black River or Hudson River whitewater-rafting trip with barbecue (up to $85 value per person value)
- Wetsuit rental if needed ($20 value per person)
During Black River trips, seasoned guides captain groups down 9 miles of Class II–IV rapids past scenery that includes hanging vines, waterfalls, great blue herons, and osprey. Alternatively, on the 17-mile Hudson River trip, guides and their groups paddle rafts down the longest stretch of whitewater in New York, beneath the towering pines and breathtaking cliffs of the Adirondack wilderness. Both trips include wetsuit rental, cold drinks, and a homemade chicken barbecue.
When the founders of A.R.O. Adventures first took their raft to the shores of Moose River, they didn't know it was widely renowned as one of the wildest, most intense waterways in the region. The spirited New Yorkers were just looking for adventure, fun, and a means to explore their homeland's natural beauty. After falling in love with the river's tumultuous rapids and scenic surrounding wilderness, the trailblazers began honing their rafting skills with regular trips, eventually bringing their friends and family along for the ride.
More than three decades later, the group of adventurous guides continues to lead tours down Moose River. The guides, however, have since expanded their inventory of trips to include three other major New York rivers, each characterized by unique classes of rapids and magnificent rural backdrops. A cheerful bunch, the guides always end trips with a homemade barbecue, along with thrilling stories, good-hearted jokes, and a round of beverages.
