The pace of the trip is laid back with lots of time for swimming, taking in the scenic views, watching for wildlife, or even getting out of the boat for the occasional short hike to a waterfall or a ghost town. There are a few rapids that will get the heart racing for those that want it (or take a gentler line and skip the meat of the rapid altogether).  It’s a trip that can be tailored to your group’s needs and desires, including the watercraft. Our guides will help you decide if a raft or an inflatable kayak makes the most sense for your group.
Whatever the decision, you’ll be glad you spent the day on one of the prettiest one-day trips in the country.

A Window Into The World of Kayaking

There’s a certain confidence that comes from knowing you are with riding in a raft with a trusted professional guide, helping you navigate the challenges that await downstream. Yet, there might be an even greater pleasure when that control and decision-making suddenly falls squarely on your shoulders (Never mind the professional guide still there pointing you where to go).

Enter the world of duckies. Ducky trips, or inflatable kayaks, are an excellent introduction into the sport of whitewater kayaking. Experience every stroke and splash as you work your way through Class I-III rapids set within the backdrop of the beautiful New River Gorge. Relax in the pools and paddle hard in the whitewater; this trip is a blast.
