Make Your Raft Trip Part of a Vacation

Our whitewater adventures are located near New York State's premier vacation areas, the Adirondack Mountains, and The Thousand Islands Eastern Lake Ontario region. Accommodations ranging from camping to luxury resorts allow you to make your raft trip part of an extended vacation in either region. Our Hudson River Raft trips are in the Gore Mountain Region, close to Lake George, Lake Placid, Schroon Lake, Indian Lake, and Old Forge. Our Black River Trip is a short drive from Alexandria Bay and Clayton in the 1000 Islands, Sackets Harbor and Henderson Harbor on the Eastern Shore of lake Ontario, and only an hour and twenty minutes from Old Forge, a great base for either river, as well as a range of Adirondack adventures.
