  • Enjoy this half-day guided Class I-III Whitewater Rafting trip, perfect for introductory whitewater fun. Travel on 2 rivers through 3 states (Maryland, West Virginia and Virginia) for an unforgettable rafting adventure!

    Picture yourself zooming through whitewater and paddling like mad to avoid an oncoming rock formation. Water is rushing all around your face and you can just barely find the line to cut through to the other side before you're at it again.

    Experienced guides will show you the best routes through the rapids while entertaining you with river lore. Float by the historic town of Harpers Ferry while you listen to stories of events leading to the Civil War. When you're not rafting, soak up the sun on the side of the river!
