Boreas River Day Trip

Boreas River Day Trip
Class III-IV
12 miles
April

TRIP OVERVIEW

The Boreas is hard to catch. There are no dam releases and the river rises and falls very quickly. If you are lucky enough to get on the Boreas when it has water, you will not be disappointed. This is a very seldom paddled, intense, technical river featuring the longest continuous stretch of Class IV whitewater in the Adirondacks!

Previous rafting experience is requested on this challenging run. Paddlers will be required to make critical moves in quick succession. We reserve the right to move trips to the Hudson or Moose if river levels are too high, too low, or if participants don't have adequate experience.

WHAT TO BRING

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.

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.
