$40 for Whitewater-Rafting Trip for Two ($80 Value)

Teams plunge through churning Class II and Class III rapids on the controlled-release Salmon River, where water flows sufficiently from an upstream dam on only six days during the summer. Guides and participants launch their rafts from Brown's Campground, easing into a high-speed run through the village of Pulaski and slowing only to avoid the river's traffic police. Paddlers surmount roiling currents in stretches with such names as the Washing Machine, the Lusitania, and the Black Hole while the river's spray quenches the summer sun's heat. Guides provide paddles, helmets, and personal flotation devices in addition to rafts that seat up to six paddlers. The river is open for weekend runs on July 7, July 8, July 21, July 22, August 4, and August 5 starting at 9 a.m. and 9:30 a.m.

When he was still a college student, Kevin Kretschmer answered an ad in the local newspaper for a whitewater-rafting guide on the rivers around Syracuse. More than 30 years later, he now owns the company and operates his river tours with the mission of giving others the chance to see the area's scenic beauty. His diverse team of guides—some schoolteachers, some farmers, some factory workers, and some college students—helps paddlers navigate rapids on three rivers while hunkered into six-person inflatable rafts. Together they navigate the calmer Class I and Class II waters of Letchworth State Park, the raging Class II and Class III rapids of the Salmon River, and the passive-aggressive Class III and Class IV segments of Cattaraugus Creek. Guides commence each trip far upstream, allowing rafters to find a rhythm before surmounting the rapids.
