The Dryway trip meets at our base in Charlemont, Massachusetts at 10:30 am. Please try to be on time, since we must work within the schedule of water releases decided on by the power company. You will be required to read and sign a release of liability at this time. We raft a section of class III and IV whitewater on the Deerfield River in Northwestern Massachusetts. We put in below the #5 Station Dam and finish the trip at Dunbar Brook in Florida, MA. The trip usually takes about 6 hours overall, including registration, transportation to the river, a snack stop, a barbecue lunch served at our base, and a slide show of your run through the biggest rapids. Our snack stop consists of chips, salsa, fruit, brownies, and beverages. The Dryway dinner is a large barbecue spread of chips & salsa, marinated chicken and beef, veggie burgers, a hot veggie baked dish, marinated mushrooms, green salad, additional veggie salads, rolls & butter, and a dessert as well as drinks.
We absolutely loved our day whitewater rafting on the Deerfield River! The guides, the food, the experience, the thrill of it all - simply amazing!!
