About
This half-day guided rafting float trip on the Deerfield River is the perfect active recreation to add to your family vacation in New England or to create an adventure getaway with your kids. With a minimum age of 5 allowed on our Zoar family float trips, you can show your children the fun and thrill of rafting as they learn to paddle, perhaps for the first time. Our family rafting trips showcase the beauty of the lower Deerfield River as it meanders through farmland and the rolling Berkshire foothills along the historic Mohawk Trail. Our professional river guides provide insight into the natural and cultural history of the area. With opportunities to swim and splash in the waters of the Deerfield, this trip provides a wonderful afternoon adventure for families, scout and camp groups. Float Trips meet at 2:30 pm and usually finish between 5:30-6:00 pm. Along the way we stop a private swimming hole to enjoy the sun, scenery, and a family friendly snack.

Awesome Staff!!
Aug. 2020 • Couples
Zoar was great at accommodating my boyfriend and i when we arrived late due to traffic. All the staff at Zoar were hilarious and did a perfect job at getting us excited and ready for our trip! Our guide for the duration of the rafting trip was Jasper and he was great at instructing us in what to do and made light conversation the entire time. After he found out we weren’t from the area he was quick to recommend a place to eat and some things to do (he really talked up the area lol). He was such a great guide and all around great person that he even made it possible for my boyfriend and I to visit again. Can’t wait to come down with more family/friends and cross paths with him again. Will definitely be recommending this place to anyone who’ll listen!

Thank you! Be sure to request Jasper next time you're in town, I'm sure he would like to raft with you again.

One of the best family activities we've done together! I would highly recommend the family float trip. Our kids are already looking forward to going back again next year to try out the more advanced rapids. Sadie was an amazing guide!

A great family adventure !
Aug. 2020
All three generations loved this experience. The introduction & preparation was excellent, and the guide was wonderful. We were comfortable with Zoar as they are observing all the safety protocols for Covid-19. The scenery is lovely and the floating traffic on the river was friendly and added to the fun.

The grandchildren are anxious to return for the Gap Trip next summer. We'll be back for sure !

Unsafe During Epidemic
Aug. 2020
Not COVID- safe. Once we were out in the rafts, it was totally out of our control--the other rafts, full of unmasked people, kept coming in contact with our raft, in spite of repeated requests not to. I had to push them away with a paddle. Our guide was annoying--kept telling really dumb jokes instead of giving us any opportunity to talk to each other or enjoy the scenery.

Hi, Susan, Thank you for the feedback. You and I talked before your trip so I understand how serious you are about COVID-19. We are too! We have been managing inherent risk for 31 years, COVID-19 is another layer for us to manage. We have many glowing reviews applauding our COVID-19 response. We provided you with private transportation and your own raft and guide for your group of three on the family float trip. I understand you were expecting something more, I'm sorry we didn't meet your expectations. It has been a challenging year, and everyone is carrying more stress than normal--It's not our intention to contribute to your stress.

Awesome First Time
Aug. 2020
We had an awesome time this past week rafting with Zoar Outdoor. We brought our two young boys for their first time and we felt absolutely safe the whole time. Our guide, Matt, was excellent; he was knowledgable and funny and helped make this experience a great family memory.
