Friends & Family

Get the best people you know together for a day or trip that they will never forget! Don’t recycle the same trip as last year – plan something fresh and amazing and come to Crab Apple for a trip you will remember for years! How could it be more fun to paddle through the rapids with family members, splash the other rafts with buckets of water and re-live the day’s action with an amazing show of photos from your day on the river together.

“Together” is the best word when it comes to planning events with Friends and Family. Everyone has the same amazing rafting experience in small groups – no dividing the kids and adults at the amusement park or kids in the waves at the beach while the adults huddle under an umbrella. “Together” all day is a great way to spend the day!

Hundreds of groups (family reunions, neighborhood friends, singles clubs, social clubs, etc.) have rafted with us since 1983. We have two beautiful, riverside base camps that have comfortable space for socializing before and after raft trips. Check out Crab Apple’s discounted rafting rates for groups (12 or more rafters) of friends and family.
