Went whitewater rafting 5/27/17 on the Black River. What a great time we had. The weather was perfect and the water fast and refreshing. Our guide, Eric, really made the trip fun. His instructions were clear and easy to follow. We all enjoyed the paddle salute after conquering a big wave. We would recommend this to anyone looking for a fun and thrilling activity. We will come back, hoping to get Eric as our guide again. Thanks for a great day!

Had a great time with friends. The guide was very friendly and informative. Got to jump off a cliff and float down the river. Can't wait to do it again!

We recently went to raft the Black River with a large group. What a great time! We found the guides to be fun, informative and the routine well put together.

We had a great time and had plenty of time to enjoy both the thrill of the rapids and the warm relaxing river and beautiful views it had to offer. Then they feed you after! What a value$$$ I will definitely do this again.

This was our second time whitewater rafting on the Black River with Whitewater Challengers. We enjoyed it so much 2 years ago that we came back again. The guides really add so much to the whole experience. Last time, Will was our expert guide and this time it was Eric. They are so personable, fun and engaging. Whitewater Challengers added some new attractions to the trip this time, like surfing back into the rapids and jumping off the rocks. So much fun! I was even really impressed that they were able to accommodate the BBQ for 3 of our party's vegan diets. (not the mid-run snacks though). There is a photo CD available at the end of the adventure which we just had to get. I think a nice addition would be to take a group photo before/after the trip. Our group motto with the paddle salute was also a humorous addition to the fun. Looking forward to our next adventure!

This was a fantastic trip that I received for my birthday! I was especially impressed with our guide Tony. I was scared because this was my first time whitewater rafting, and he was extremly supportive through the whole thing. We found this company to be better than other whitewater rafting trips in the area.
