About Adirondack Rafting Company

The Rafferty Family would like to welcome you to the Hudson River Gorge!

As an Adirondack Rafting Company, our goal is to provide a very entertaining and safe day on the river to each one of our guests. We’ve organized an extremely skilled team on the Hudson River Gorge who are very familiar with the Adirondack Mountain region. Our NY rafting guides have many years experience in Adirondack white water rafting and are well educated with the ways of the wilderness environment where we work and live.

All of our guides are licensed by the State of New York and certified in first aid needs. Adirondac Rafting Co. is located right where your trip begins, no long bus ride for us. Adirondac Rafting Co. has a comfortable rustic Lodge with full changing facilities.

We run the highest quality and most modern equipment available in the white-water business.

Our self-bailing rafts are considered to be the finest on the river. All of our river gear is comfortable and maintained to our high standards

At Adirondac Rafting we share a love for the outdoors year round whether we are involved in the winter with the skiing world or out for a very enjoyable day on the river. We look forward to the opportunity to run this great river with you.

See you on the river, The Rafferty Family

We were in Indian Lake for The Adirondack Moose Festival and decided to go rafting. Both over 60 but active. Our guides suited us up and gave us a safety talk, 2 times. We were on our way. 17 miles of beautiful scenery and lots of area history. We love our adventure and recommend this tour to anyone.

My husband and I love white water rafting. Doing a trip in the Hudson Gorge was one of our plans for our Adirondacks vacation. Not sure how we ended up with the Adirondac (yes, that's the correct spelling). Rafting Company, but we're glad we did. Totally professional, handled large crowds of people easily. Though there were two bus-loads of people,... More

Tried white water rafting today for the first time with a group of friends. Len, our guide, was fantastic! We were quite nervous but so glad we did this! It was a five-hour or so trip down. There were nice, calm areas along with Class 3 Rapids. There were many people with their children also and they all did great.... More

This is a great experience! Prepare yourself to be thrilled, exhilarated, happy, tired (a bit), and, oh yes, soaked! Bob runs a first-rate operation. He will check you in, take you through the sign-in process, and make recommendations as to what to wear. They have the wet-suits (tops and bottoms) on site. Your guide will show you how to put...

1st whitewater rafting trip for our family and not disappointing! It satisfied our teen and preteen's sense of adventure, while giving mom and dad a great experience despite our various aches and pains! If you have the ability to do some paddling and sit on a raft for long periods, you can do this! I am proud to say I... More

My first white water rafting. The company is very professional, reasonably price with great employees. Jeff was in charge of our raft & was very personable, knowledgeable & professional. Our guide pointed out points of interest & back/stories about the river & area. He listened to our "wants"such as "more swimming"time. I highly recommend the ARC

It's obvious when a hands on owner hires only the best guides as was evident today. Clearly this owner had figured it out and runs a great company delivering unparalleled experience to his customers. The guides were fantastic! Knowledgeable about the river, surroundings, history of the area, and techniques. We always felt safe I these class 1-3 Rapids. Yes you... More

Booked this trip spur of the moment, and didn't know what to expect.
