About Crab Apple Whitewater
Located in the Berkshires, Crab Apple Whitewater sends adventure seekers on river-bound thrill rides daily from early April through mid-October using inflatable kayaks for Class I–II rapids and larger group rafts for Class II–IV rapids. The rafting and kayaking outfitter sits on a 1-mile-long reservoir along the Deerfield River, where eagle, osprey, and beaver sightings are common. During the summertime, stand-up paddle board rentals behind their base camp are also available. Crab Apple Whitewater charts routes through the Berkshire Mountains on rivers such as the Deerfield, making use of natural flows and daily dam releases in order to control the challenge for kayakers and rafters of all skill levels. Trips are consistent due to dam control, but vary based on interpretations of fortunes found in the guide’s tea leaves the night before. All adventurers strap on provided helmets and life jackets and attend a safety lecture prior to casting off.
