Looking for something fun to do in your off-time? Shenandoah river rafting is a great way to experience the great outdoors from a different perspective, and no matter your skill level, there is certainly an adventure here that has your name all over it! To help you prepare for your journey, we’ve compiled some information that our other adventurers have found helpful along the way.

  • What Should I Bring? Of course, you are probably going to want to snap a few great shots, but make sure that your camera can endure the water. Disposable waterproof cameras are perfect; they’re made for water, and if you lose them, you’re not out a huge investment. An extra change of clothes and a few extra towels couldn’t hurt, either. Make sure you have shoes that are happy to get wet and dry quickly (think any type of shoe with a back such as teva type sandals, tennis shoes or water shoes!)
  • What Should I Expect? One of the best parts of river rafting is that you can only expect so much. We have skilled experts that will guide you through your journey, but expecting to know everything that will happen is expecting too much! Relax and enjoy the adventure because you never know exactly what is around every turn in the bends. Expect to have a great time, to laugh, to endure a little fear, and to leave with an experience that you could not have had the pleasure of having anywhere else!
  • What Should I Know? We have you and your family and friends at the foremost of our responsibilities. We love what we do, and we think you’ll love what we do, too! You’ll spend a half of a day navigating the waters of the Shenandoah River, working through seven miles of rapids and rocks, bends and twists, smiles and fears. We’ll teach you the basics, so even if you come with no knowledge at all, you’ll enter the water with a confident idea of what a stroke should feel like.

We love our jobs, and we love that we get to show you, our customers, nature from a different angle. It doesn’t matter if you’re celebrating a milestone or just looking for an adventure, we are here to help!
