If you’ve ever taken our rafting trip before and are looking for a bigger challenge, try Class III whitewater on an inflatable or sit-on-top kayak! These maneuverable craft allow for a more intense, personal experience with the river and afford the freedom of an open-top boat; if you fall off, you flip it over and hop back on. Participants must be reasonably physically fit and weigh between 90-250 lbs. And most importantly not be afraid to get wet! An experienced guide will provide basic instruction and shepherd you or your group down the river. Inflatables will be given to the first 15 participants unless a special request is made for a sit-on-top. Our inflatable thrill kats are lighter and more forgiving for beginners!
Join River and Trail Outfitters in Knoxville, Maryland near Harpers Ferry, West Virginia (only one hour from Washington DC) for this guided white water kayaking tour on the Potomac and Shenandoah Rivers.
