If that is not enough to convince you take a look below.
Our trips are designed to give you the best trip available. Whitewater rafting with Beaver Brook offers:

Our raft guides are some of the most experienced on the river. No one knows the Hudson better, and no one will give you a better ride.

Self-bailing rafts: they are the only way to go and our fleet is fully self bailing.

We're open seven days a week pretty much all year long, so if you give us a call between 8AM & 6PM you get to talk to a real person! We will give you all the details: what to bring, what to expect, what we provide, etc. You can also stop by the shop if you're in the area and see a real person. That person will know the gorge because they've been on it. Chances are good you will talk to a rafting guide who runs it regularly!

We're close. Just 3 1/2 - 5 hours from the NYC area and Boston, 3 hours from Syracuse, and 1+ hours from Albany.

Our rafting base at the Inn on Gore provides the best pre or post trip atmosphere on the Hudson. And Sue makes a fantastic après-raft dinner!

Go rafting with us and enjoy a 10% discount on almost everything in our Wevertown retail store when you stop in, or get that same discount at our nearby Canoe Center. Just ask for a coupon after your trip.
OUR RAFT TRIPS

WHITEWATER RAFTING THE HUDSON RIVER GORGE

Rated as one of the top 10 whitewater rafting trips in the U.S., the Hudson River Gorge is the pinnacle of Eastern Whitewater. Seventeen miles of great class III-IV+ whitewater combined with spectacular scenery, will provide you and your group with memories that will last a lifetime. This is a full day trip that takes you through the heart of the six million acre Adirondack Park, via rapids such as the Gooley Steps, Blue Ledges, The Narrows, Givney's Rifts, and the Bus Stop, just to name a few. Take a swim in Dunk Flats, leap off Elephant Rock, or engage in ship-to-ship warfare (a.k.a. splash-fights). Hop back in your raft for a quick run through Entry Rapid's Jiffy Pop Drop just before your riverside lunch; then prepare for miles of foamy fun as you run the Narrows, Osprey, Mile-Long and more. After your trip, enjoy a great hot dinner at our raft base while you reminisce about the days adventures.

Includes: Self bailing raft, wetsuit, booties, helmet, PFD, lunch, hot dinner, transportation and NYS licensed guide

    Water level is 1500 cubic feet per second and rising right now. I checked past water levels, and when we did this same trip on June 12, 2010, it was at 1600 cfs. One post-event comment for that trip was "The river was running high, the rapids were roaring and the river guides were great. Great fun all around."
    Current water level is at this link: http://waterdata.usgs.gov/usa/nwis/uv?site_no=01315500
