Season: Spring, Summer, Fall

The Lower New plunges over massive boulders in the New River Gorge in a drop-pool format. The drops in elevation are where you’ll find the rapids. The pools are where you have a chance to catch your breath, look back upstream and say, “I can’t believe I just did that!”
In the Spring you can raft on BIG water as the New River explodes with churning, jaw-dropping rapids. In early Summer (June and early July), the Grand Canyon of the East is the quintessential rafting experience as you whoop it up on well-defined wave trains and enjoy a cool, refreshing float between rapids.

Rafts: Wildwater offers three different rafts sizes to customize your rafting experience. Going smaller is actually the biggest ride! Double check the minimum age difference when deciding the type of ride you want.

16-foot Raft: This is the Industry Standard Raft that seats 8+ guests and a guide. They are the largest rafts we have, offering the most stable and comfortable ride. They are also the most economical raft we have and are ideal for groups and first-time rafters.

14-foot Raft: This is our High Adventure Raft that seats 6+ guests and a guide. Smaller than the 16-foot raft, these rafts are very reactive in the white water! Lighter and more manuverable, these rafts give you more thrills and spills, putting you right in the thick of the action. This is our most popular raft and well worth the extra money. Minimum age 14.

12-foot Raft: This is our Extreme Raft that seats 4+ guests and a guide. You would be amazed how many crazy people want this raft! It's almost 100% guaranteed you will be swimming. Minimum age is 18, previous experience highly recommended, strong swimming skills highly recommended and a desire to push the limits of white water rafting. This is the smallest commercial raft available on the river!

A $3.00 per person, per guided activity Resource Use Fee is applied to each reservation.
