$45 for Whitewater-Rafting Trip (Up to $97 Value)
A certified guide captains whitewater rafts of up to nine people on trips down the Hudson River. Staffers provide all equipment, including a helmet and wetsuit. In between bouts against the rapids, paddlers can gaze at the granite cliffs and dense trees bordering the river. They can also take a swimming break at Jump Rock, a huge boulder that serves as a launch point for cannonballs and soapbox speeches. Along the way, guides pass out a snack, such as a peanut-butter wrap with granola and honey. After the excursion, groups can bond over the included cookout dinner.
Whitewater Challengers river guides are prepared to take your group of rafters as young as age 5 down the Lehigh River. A leader in the rafting industry since 1975, the guides have collectively traveled more than 16 million miles of rapids. They chart courses that satisfy a range of experience levels.
The crew’s ultimate goal is to make rafting a fun adventure for the whole family, which means that they take care of the business end, providing all safety equipment, transportation to launch points, a riverside lunch, and lessons for novices. When not on the water, the outdoors-loving crew also organizes mountain-biking and camping trips in Pennsylvania.
