    Enjoy this half-day guided Class I-III Whitewater Rafting trip, perfect for introductory whitewater fun. Travel on 2 rivers through 3 states (Maryland, West Virginia and Virginia) for an unforgettable rafting adventure!

    Picture yourself zooming through whitewater and paddling like mad to avoid an oncoming rock formation. Water is rushing all around your face and you can just barely find the line to cut through to the other side before you're at it again.

    Experienced guides will show you the best routes through the rapids while entertaining you with river lore during this 6.5-mile course. Float by the historic town of Harpers Ferry while you listen to stories of events leading to the Civil War. When you're not rafting, soak up the sun on the side of the river!

    This was such a fun experience! We were paired with Harry and he was an amazing river rafting guide. The rafting was fun and he made sure everyone stayed safe. We will have to plan to go back again in the spring when he said the rapids are more active.
    Great time, fun guides!
    Terrific guides! Harry and Olivia (our raft) and Katie (bus tour).

    Hi Mark,  Terrific! We love it!  Cheers,  ​Kasia
    Though it was cold, the fall rafting was stunning, what with the multi-colored trees and many types of bird. Our guide was really fun.
    Response from Cloud 9 Living
    Thanks for writing in. We are glad to hear you had an awesome time besides the chilly temps. I'm sure the beautiful fall scenery made it worth going late in the season. Thanks again and enjoy your weekend!  Best, ​Brooke
    Excellent, best time of my life.
    The guide was great and so were the rest of the people working there. The river just didn't have the rapids we were hoping for. We need to go earlier in the season.
    This trip was the second whitewater that we have taken and it was the best, so far. Our Guide, Anthony, did an excellent job with pointing out local interest points. He also has great rafting skills. This is a trip we would love to do again.
