The Hudson River Day Trip starts on the Indian River with 3 miles of action-packed Class III whitewater. The rapids calm for a moment when we reach the Hudson, but quickly pick up speed as we plunge 650 feet through the Gorge. This is the best part of the trip, for 8 miles it's one Class III/IV rapid after another.

We stop at a campsite in the Gorge to have lunch. Our healthy lunches are prepared fresh each morning. After the Gorge it's another 3 miles of Class II whitewater to the take-out in the hamlet of North River. A 5-minute ride back to North Creek and we're back at our base.

Rafting the Hudson River is the perfect way to spend a day with friends or family. In the Spring the Hudson is Big Water Adventure. The Summer is great for families and the water is warm. In the Fall the river rises slightly and a lot of people come just to view the Fall Colors.

In the Spring and cooler days in the Fall, you will be wearing a wetsuit that we provide. The wetsuit consists of three main parts : the wetsuit john, wetsuit jacket, and wetsuit booties. You need to provide the insulation to wear under the wetsuit and against your body. The most commonly used are synthetic long underwear, similar to what you would wear skiing. Bring wool or fleece socks that will fit inside the booties. Bring a wool or fleece hat to fit under a helmet. Please no cotton.

  • Wool or Synthetic Top and Bottom
  • Wool or Synthetic Socks
  • Wool or Synthetic Hat

In the warmer months of July and August rafters can wear whatever clothes they don't mind getting wet. Cotton is acceptable, but still stays wet longer than synthetic materials. Shorts and a T-shirt or a bathing suit are the most common. You need to have something secure on your feet. Not just so you don't lose them if you swim, but more importantly, so you have good support when walking around on the river shore. Please no flip-flops, Crocs, or bare feet.

  • Shorts & T-shirt or Bathing Suit
  • Water Shoes or Sandals
