Errol Rapid Class II
A Family-Friendly, Weekday Adventure, Open To Ages 6+

About: This introductory rafting experience is geared towards families, beginner rafters and those just looking to have fun on the water on a hot summer day. On this trip we take 3 runs down a section of class II rapids which are about a third of a mile in length. On the first run down the river, your guide will use a sport raft so you can get a feel for the river. On the next two runs, guests can make things a bit more wild if desired by trying river tubes and/or inflatable kayaks as well. Each run down the river last approximately 15-20 minutes. After each run guides and guests will bring the rafts/river tubes/inflatable kayaks up a short stretch of trail back to the shuttle vehicle.
Location: This adventure meets at our raft base in Errol, NH.
Duration: This trip last approximately 3 hours from start to finish.

What Is A Class II Rapid: The American Whitewater Association classifies Class II rapids as – Straightforward rapids with wide, clear channels which are evident without scouting. Occasional maneuvering may be required, but rocks and medium-sized waves are easily missed by trained paddlers. Swimmers are seldom injured and group assistance, while helpful, is seldom needed. Rapids that are at the upper end of this difficulty range are designated Class II+.
