Details of Rafting and Kayaking in Massachusetts Berkshires, Charlemont, Massachusetts Rafting Trips Details for Rafting and Kayaking in Massachusetts Berkshires

Active Adventure

Crab Apple Whitewater is a family owned and operated adventure business in New England. Since 1983, we have offered a wide range of Mild to WILD river rafting trips for families and high adventure seekers in central Maine and the Berkshire Hills of western Massachusetts. We have two beautiful, riverside base camps to keep our guests comfortable. Our guides are trained as family members and to treat each guest as the most important guest of the day...better guides mean better rides! We run trips on high water in the spring, on dam controlled Class 2-4 rapids in the summer and through fall foliage season. Let our family and Crab Apple staff show you the wonders of New England rivers.

River trips in the Berkshires run mostly on the dam controlled Deerfield River. Three sections of river offer WILD Class 3-4 rapids, an intermediate class 2 and 3 rapid stretch and a mild Class 1-2 stretch of river.

Typical Day

Full day adventures begins in the morning; between 9:30-11:00am and end aroung 4:00pm. Hal-f-day trips begin in the early afternoon and end around 6:00pm.
