We LOVE surfing! Half-way through the trip we take a break for a quick snack. Time to rejuvenate some tired arms and get ready for the largest rapids of the trip. Also a chance to talk about the beauty of the river, possible wildlife sightings and enjoy the camaraderie with friends and family.

We are living the dream as we sit along the banks of the Deerfield in a deep, forested gorge. These rapids require precise maneuvering by your guide and strong paddling by each rafter. Big drops and huge splashes through the raft will be captured on film, so paddle hard! Good runs through these Class IV rapids climax an awesome day of whitewater action in the Berkshires.
When the run is complete, it is back to Crab Apple for an amazing cookout with lots of options including homemade sal, desserts, bread and main courses. Groups of 6 or 7 will have a private raft.
Groups with fewer than 6 may we ed by other parties. Top of the line gear and wonderful experience and beautiful wilderness. Overall a great time and recommend tremendously!

Internet Specials. Liability Waiver. Our group of 6 did the Monroe Bridge trip and we had an absolute blast.
Four of us were returning rafters and 2 were new. The Guide was extremely accommodating, kind and reassuring. The entire experience from start to finish is extremely well-organized, prompt, and especially with the new COVID precautions, very safe. It is evident that the entire team at Crab Apple emphasize impeccable customer service, and we left with great memories, laughs, and a desire to return again as soon as possible.
