We’ve been going here for the past three years. Bob and his wife, Sue, are so nice and down to earth. For $59/pp (or $50 if you go on Memorial Day or Labor Day weekend, they also have other discounted prices for group or military) you get an awesome experience, with a ziti & chicken BBQ picnic on the back patio at the end and great guides. The trip is Approximately a 2 hour ride (6 miles). We request Scotty every time, he is knowledgeable, funny and nice! If the water is cold they provide you a full wet suit and splash jacket at no extra charge!

Took a trip with BOB rafting just last weekend with my girlfriend and I have to say it was awesome! Very knowledgeable guides gave us historical information about the black river area in addition to very clear directions and hazards while we were rafting. Price was fantastic and even came with a cookout BBQ afterwards! Bob and all the staff were super friendly and I’d recommend them to anybody!

This was so much fun!  I would recommend BOB Rafting to all my friends and other Yelpers!  Even though we took our trip in August, (in exceptionally lower water because of this drought!), we all had such a blast!  The Black River was a great experience, and the dam release provides category 4 rapids no matter what time of the year you go!  I’ve fallen in love with whitewater after that trip, and need more!  BOB Rafting (especially our guides Mike and Bernie) did a great job of providing safety and the best value for our trip. I can’t wait to schedule my next trip with BOB Rafting this spring on the Hudson!

I have taken this trip on the Black River for 20 years since B.O.B first started. This company knows this river. They are a family owned business. Safe, fun and they even feed you at the end of the trip. I would highly recommend calling B.O.B. Rafting for a White Water Rafting adventure! Say hello to Bob and Sue Peterson.

Nothing but excellent things to say about our experience!! Everyone was great, we felt safe and prepared to hit the rapids. Our guide, Petey, was knowledgeable and made the experience so much fun. Amazing cookout afterwards. Great place, great time, great people. Can’t wait to go back and do it again!!

Had a great time on the Black River with BOB rafting. The guides were great. Very friendly and quite knowledgeable about the river. They put the first timers at ease quickly and were very concerned with the safety of the entire trip. We would recommend this company to all who want to raft the Black.
