Went on a day trip that was to last 3-4 hours with family, friends and a couple of super soakers. What a great time. The guides were fantastic, friendly and personable. We were with others and had water battles the entire way down the river...More
Thanks! And yes, definitely stay with us next year and you will be within walking distance to all of our activities.

Thanks! Those rocks can be tricky to navigate around...next time you should be able to steer that raft like a pro with some experience under your belt.

Thanks! The weekend you rafted the Francis E Walter Dam was releasing almost double the amount of water than what they release on a typical dam release weekend. So that means bigger rapids and more excitement...so it is important that you listen to your guides...More
The staff is friendly and very willing to help out from the time you arrive to getting ready, on the river and after the trip was over. I have been coming to Whitewater Challengers for over 30 years now.
Awesome! Thanks for coming back year after year.
My friends and I had such an amazing time. It wasn't easy but it was definitely worth all the extra muscle work. Special thanks to the staff Cara , Jordan,Kendall, and Paul. They did an amazing job guiding us through the Rapids and keeping the...More

Whitewater Challengers was well organized, the trip was very fun, the river was great, the water was fresh and clean, and most of the guides were very helpful and good natured except for one who really left a sour taste in everyone's mouth. Katherine Kessler...More
Thank you! We're glad you had an overall good experience. We are sorry to hear about your experience with the trip leader that day. This is something we can certainly address with him. We hope to see you on the river again soon!
