What People Are Saying...



We rafted down the Deerfield River at the Monroe Bridge...

last Saturday. The five of us had a great time, the trip was more exciting than we expected, and we loved every minute of it. RJ was a great guide, pushing us to the limit. We will ask for him for our next trip. The cookout after the trip was delicious and the entire day was run very professionally. What a great time!!!



I must commend you on the professionalism with which your establishment is run.

Your honesty and willingness to please are remarkable! You used foresight, discretion and respect in providing us with a female guide to add to our novice, all women raft. And, what a guide! Ingrid proved to be competent, experienced and sweet. Her outgoing personality is enhanced by her exuberance for life and her respect and caring for others. We all feel as is we made a new friend.




Deerfield River - Monroe Bridge Section

Big White Water Excitement in the Berkshires

The Monroe Bridge trip is full of big waves and fast whitewater action!

The fun starts right below the Monroe Bridge dam with Class II warm-up rapids and then leads to a stretch of bigger, Class III drops such as

"Devil's Odds" and "Landslide." Along the way our expert guides take time to play and work the river in a "surfing hole" or two. Each rapid gets more exciting as the trip builds toward the final and most difficult rapids of the day, "Dragon's Tooth" and "The Terminator." These rapids require precise maneuvering by your guide and strong paddling by each rafter. Good runs through these Class IV rapids climax an awesome day of whitewater

action in the Berkshires.



"Our son, Ryan, finally turned 15 so we could take him on this great trip ...

Hard to believe we were less than two hours from home. We felt like we were on the Colorado riding huge waves and surfing some deep holes. It was awesome. Thanks again - our tenth trip with Crab Apple!"
