My family and I had a great time. The river is very nice and the rapids are level 1-2 and 3 are very cool to do. Our guide was fun and knowledgeable about the river and some historic facts. Good times.

Putting the phrase 'whitewater rafting' and 'Massachusetts' into the same sentence would likely draw a 'huh?' from anyone who has ever been down, say, the Colorado River. But through a quirk of geography and technology, Massachusetts does offer a relatively mild, but definitely fun way to experience the pleasure of shooting the rapids. The geography is the Deerfield River in... More
