Had a great whitewater raft trip. The guide, Jim, was great...both safety wise and enjoyable to be with. One problem: they took great pix of us, but then wanted to sell us all of the pictures for almost $50 despite us only being on probably 5% of the pictures. They don't sell separate pix. We weren't videod so didn't need them. It seems they lost money since I didn't see anyone decide to buy the pix. Why not offer them online as individual pix...with the right software they'd make money selling the pix...instead they didn't make any money at all. There were some pix we wanted, but not for $50. Would like to see that changed!

What You'll Get

Like deep-sea ping-pong, whitewater rafting requires a well-made paddle and the ability to overcome most fish-related phobias. Embrace accessible aqua fun with today's Groupon: for $25, you get a half-day whitewater-rafting adventure from Northwood's Adventures (up to a $52.95 value). River adventurers meet at 4789 US Highway 2 in Vulcan, Michigan, which is approximately three and a half hours north of Madison.

Northwood's Adventures offers downriver cruises through the whitely washed waters of the Menominee River. Launching daily at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., the approximately three-hour excursion begins with a brief safety talk, paddle practice, team-building exercises, and games led by experienced guides. Then it’s time to meander through a beautiful 2-mile stretch of Class I and II+ rapids that funnel into Piers Gorge Portage Trail sand beach. After a mild hike to look out upon the rapids to come, gung-ho rafters proceed through the 100-foot-tall rock walls and roiling Class IV+ water wraiths of mighty Piers Gorge. Post-gorge tackling, significantly damper rafters rendezvous with the cliff-top observers and proceed to the final set of rapids.

In keeping with the strict safety standards, Northwood's Adventures keeps all of its equipment clean and well-maintained, stocks each raft with a competent guide, and provides complimentary life jackets, helmets, and paddles for all passengers. Wetsuits and other gear are available for rental for an additional fee.
