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 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.

It was a really great way to spend the day! Our leader was FABULOUS, the entire trip was fun and though we were never on a raft before, I felt truly safe on the water!

I saw this Groupon for Crab Apple's funyaking trips early in the Summer and thought yup, let's give this a try! I purchased a deal for two people -- a single funyak each -- and surprised my boyfriend with the road trip up from southern Connecticut. We both loved it! As almost all other reviews state, the staff are exceptionally friendly, helpful and knowledgeable -- and safety and fun are their priorities. All equipment was provided and, even though the river is only a Class I-II (I prefer the IVs and Vs :) ), the trip was incredibly relaxing, with beautiful scenery and fantastic value for money (note the journey down river is self-guided if you take the funyaks -- there's no rush, go at your own pace ... which we especially liked). It was only about 77o outside (and did get a little chilly around 6pm, at the very end of the trip), but the water was a comfortable 75o -- and wearing just shorts, a swimsuit and a t-shirt was perfect. Changing rooms were large and parking plentiful. There's also a great little shop onsite with lots of souvenir t-shirts, hoodies and the like. Loved the addition of the water guns they provide whilst you're on the river too -- so much fun!! All round, a really great day ... and we'd definitely do it again! :)
