Whitewater Rafting

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Pocono Mountain Lakes Realty RB 066506

As we approach Memorial Day and the beginning of summer in the Pocono Mountains, it’s time to start planning a season of fun in the sun. There is plenty to keep you busy on land in the Poconos – hiking, biking, fishing, foraging, and more. However, don’t forget the beautiful bodies of water in the region that open themselves up for cool downs on hot days! While there are many lakes and bodies of water open for a dip, another way to enjoy the water this summer is by strapping in for some whitewater rafting. 

There are several small businesses across the Poconos – including in Jim Thorpe and White Haven –  that offer river-based fun, on both the Lehigh and Delaware Rivers. Options are available for people of all skill/interest levels, from challenging rapids to simple and slow tube or raft rides on the river. Prepare for a scenic experience, as you will encounter flowing waterfalls and catch sight of the region’s beautiful wilderness and wildlife. What better way to see the Poconos than from the water? 

Ready to hit the water this summer? I can get you here!

Rick-- I would love to do this, maybe next summer, after I get my much needed new hip!  Looks like a blast.  PS--I just followed you, I am in NJ, please do likewise.

I'm more of open lake floating kind of guy than rafting, but I used to enjoy it before some replacement surgeries.
