When rafting the Hudson River, your day begins at our river base in Indian Lake. We then provide all gear necessary for whitewater rafting. Hudson River Rafters should check out our FAQ’s section find out what to wear before arriving!
After a 5 minute ride to the outfitter’s put-in site on the river, your rafting adventure is about to begin. After a brief explanation of your trip and some general safety information you’ll hop into one of our state of the art self bailing Maravia rafts. Once on the river you and your fellow paddlers (with the assistance of our experienced guides) begin your descent down the Indian River.
After 3 miles of exhilarating Class III white water you enter the confluence with the Hudson River.
Now on the Hudson you begin to feel the power of this big river as it begins to pull your raft toward the steep cliffs of the gorge.
This is where we take our break and provide rafting guests with our river side lunch and a chance to relax and enjoy the remote gorge.
After our lunch break we begin the faster more challenging rapids. During the months of April and May this section often turns into Class IV & V white water, summer months provide us with entertaining Class III rapids. You barely have time to relax as you encounter one great set of rapids after another.
As you near the end of your rafting trip this great river widens and allows us a relaxing float down to our take out area in North River. We then provide transportation back to Indian Lake where your rafting adventure began 4 to 5 hours earlier.
