Your guides will determine the best river and water craft depending on the water levels of the New and Bluestone Rivers.
On low water days we will float the rapids in specially designed whitewater rafting tubes. On higher water days we will run the river in inflatable kayaks (duckies). We recommend single duckies for kids 9+ and double duckies (parent and child) for kids 6-8. On big water days we will use 4 person rafts with a guide in each boat. Snacks and drinks provided.
This trip departs daily from Pipestem at 8:00 AM for a 1-hour ride to ACE Adventure Resort in Fayetteville, WV. Guest will run 21 (class I-V) raids in a raft guided by a professional guide, story teller and historian. A gourmet lunch will be served on the banks of the New River.
Upon returning to base camp guests will have an opportunity to shower and/or visit the outfitter store before returning to Pipestem. On the return trip we will play a video of your experience recorded by and edited by one of our professional videographers that kayaks the trip with you to film those special moments and memories. A snack bar and drinks will be provided on the return trip to Pipestem.
This is an 8-10 hour trip depending on water levels.
