The origins of whitewater rafting go as far back as the ancient Egyptians, who mastered the Niles rapids mainly to fish out tasty sphinxes. Find your own treasures in a churning stream with this Groupon.
A certified guide captains whitewater rafts of six to seven people on trips down the Hudson River. Staffers provide all equipment, including a helmet and wetsuit. In between bouts against the rapids, paddlers can gaze at the granite cliffs and dense trees bordering the river. They can also take a swimming break at Jump Rock, a huge boulder that serves as a launch point for cannonballs and soapbox speeches. Along the way, guides pass out a snack, such as a peanut-butter wrap with granola and honey. After the excursion, groups can bond over the included cookout dinner.
Whitewater Challengers' certified guides steer paddlers as young as 5 across the skipping surf of the Poconos Lehigh River Gorge, the Black River Canyon, and the Adirondacks Hudson, Moose, and Salmon rivers. In the rafting industry since 1975, the guides have collectively led guests along more than 16 million miles of rapids. They chart courses that satisfy a range of experience levels, from beginning jaunts down gentle rapids to advanced battles through coursing foam and wicked currents.
The crews ultimate goal is to make rafting a fun adventure, which means that they take care of the business end, providing all safety equipment, transportation to launch points, and lessons for novices. When not on the water, the outdoors-loving crew also organizes mountain-biking and camping trips in New York and Pennsylvania.
