I've gone down the Deerfield river with Crab Apple both as a kid and an adult and it has always been a spectacular time. Crab Apple is safe, fun and can be fairly easy for any newcomer as you are paddling with a team and an experienced guide. Our latest guide, Connor, made the trip even more special with his sense of fun and his desire to challenge us to be better rafters. He had a lot of interesting knowledge of the area's history and ecology and taught us a lot about the basics of the river and how to navigate tricky spots. He also did a great job getting us to connect with other people on the raft we didn't know and got us revved up to soak the other boats in water bucket wars near the end of the trip. I would highly recommend Crab Apple!

We were a family of 4, kids age 10 and 12. We loved this experience so much! It was such a fun family day. Our guide Charlotte was sweet, fun and egagging. She also expertly navigiated our raft and pointed out various points of interest and wildlife. The rapids were a lot of fun with varying intensity. Lunch was delicous too! All around an experience we enjoyed so much we were saying it should become one of our annual traditions. Also, always happy to support a family run business. Thanks for great day!

My co workers and I ( 14 of us) all went on a rafting day trip and had an awesome time! We worked together and laughed until our sides hurt! This is a family run business and they went above and beyond to make this an enjoyable day. They remembered all of our names and made us feel that we had become a part of their family. The lunch that was provided was EXCELLENT! All homemade and plentiful! Would highly recommend!!! We’re already planning our next trip back !

Thank you so much for rafting with us and giving such a strong recommendation for our family business. We really enjoy taking new rafters out on the river each day. Corporate groups are awesome fun as everyone lets their guard down and just has some laughs along the way. Thanks also for the shoutout to the food crew - they put out a great spread every day.

This is our third time booking this trip. We did the Fife River for our first rafting trip several years back and laughed the entire day.  The last two trips we did the Monroe Bridge and although challenging, we couldn't have asked for a better day.  We had 23 family and friends go on this last trip on 9/11/2021 and we can't wait to go back. Frank and his family are the Best!  Food is also Amazing!   Thank you to our guides Frank, Ryan, Zach and Noah for a great day from the Wilson Crew!

The Wilson's are so much fun each year on the river! Thanks for coming back again and again. We love the energy and fun that your crew brings for a trip down the river. Can't wait to do it again in 2022!
