CrabApple Whitewater, Deerfield River Trips
October 1 - October 12
LAST WEEKS! The Fife Brook Section trip runs nearly every day through October 12. This beautiful rafting trip through mild whitewater (Class I & II with one Class III) is the perfect outing for families, friends, groups and youth organizations. Daily dam control ensures we start out with a bang at “Hurricane Rapid” followed by bouncy rapids such as “Sideways Splash”, “Freight Train” and “Pinball”.
Calm rafting sections allow your guide to fill you in on local history and to enjoy the breathtaking scenery of the Berkshires. Midway through the rafting trip our self-bailing rafts approach the day’s biggest rapid, “Zoar Gap”. The river suddenly narrows and drops for the fastest and most fun rapid of the day.
Rafts on the ten mile trip option will continue for four miles below “Zoar Gap” and ride fun river rapids such as “Slam Dance” and “Cold River Rapid” as well as opportunities to get out of the boat and float or engage in team water fights.
Rafts on the seven mile trip option will continue approximately one more mile below “Zoar Gap” and splash through a couple of fun rapids before heading back to Crab Apple for a hearty meal.
Includes: Pre-trip safety instruction, professional guide, PFD and helmet, transportation to and from river, cookout at base after trip (steak, chicken, fish or veg. option w/homemade salads and dessert), photo presentation of your adventure.
