I took a couple of new rafters this trip and they received the same personalized treatment that I have always gotten.

We went down fife brook whitewater rafting trip. It was the first time for most of us. The guide Nick was extraordinary. We laughed we screamed but must of all we felt safe. We look forward to trying a harder trip next year.

We rafted in the Fife river section that had class 1-3 rapids. Not a very adventurous experience, for thrill seekers - it is more like a beginner's intro to white water rafting. Our guide Mike was very courteous, made us feel safe and made it a lot of fun. My 9 year old son who is usually very cautious ventured... More

This was a family trip so we had the whole boat to ourselves. 5 adults, 1 teenager and a FANTASTIC guide! Not having seen my family for so long, we were less than 100% focused but our guide Jonny Dray, kept us in check so gracefully it made the whole experience simply perfect! He was very focused on his job,... More

We took separate rafts and paddles our way downstream through class 1 and 2 rapids. It took three hours. The staff was great, we were fitted with helmets and life vests, and the equipment was well maintained. The snacks could have been better, just tiny granola bars and sugary lemonade, but the fun we had was worth it. We got... More

Frank greeted us from the get-go, directed us where to go. He set us up with Alex who was very helpful and knowledgeable of the river. He made sure that we hit all of the "FUN" activities on the river, never letting us down! The BBQ post rafting was amazing as well. CrabApple has a very friendly, family oriented atmosphere... More
