Meet our Guides and Staff

Our professional whitewater raft guides at Adirondac Rafting Company strive to provide the best possible experience for you and your family.  

We Hire the Best Guides on the River

The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation maintains a program for the licensing of outdoor guides. From rock climbing to fishing, this program serves to ensure that outfitters provide their guests with talented and professional guides equipped with the skills necessary to provide a fun and safe wilderness experience. Adirondack Rafting Company guides are the best on the river with vast whitewater and wilderness experience.

Raft Guide Olympic Champions

The Adirondac Rafting Company guide team are the 2019 reigning champions of the Hudson River Raft Guide Olympics.  We have won the event four times out of the five years it has been held.  It's a great event for the guides to exhibit their rope work, paddling ability and whitewater safety skills. You can be sure that there are equal parts camaraderie and competition. We welcome the opportunity to show off our skills and show our support for local businesses and the Hudson River whitewater community. It's all good family fun, but make no mistake:  We come to win.

Enjoy One, Share One

Adirondac Rafting Company has partnered with the Regional Food Bank of N.EN.Y to feed needy local families.

When you raft with ARC a donation is made in your honor to the Regional Food Bank of N.E.N.Y. that will provide a meal for a person in need. Enjoy your riverside lunch, and share with the less fortunate. We're into whitewater rafting, and we're into social responsibility. Come raft with us this Spring.

Be the force of change that makes your world a better place. ARC is committed to giving back to our community.
