Deerfield River Funyaking
Apr 14, 2014 - Massachusetts
Fun, Easy Whitewater!
On a beautiful, lower section of the Deerfield River, we offer our inflatable kayak or “funyak” trip. Funyaks are self-bailing, inflatable kayaks carrying one or two people. They are very stable and comfortable with room to stretch your back and legs on a soft surface. Even with no prior experience you can enjoy the thrills of river kayaking with us.
The Funyak trip is an eight mile afternoon adventure in fun Class I-II whitewater. A pre-trip safety and paddling lesson prepares you to conquer the river and small rapids such as “Chicle River” and “S-Turn.” Giant squirt guns and a nice snack half-way through the trip are also provided.
Go at your own pace – move quickly or float for miles in the warm sun.
In the deep, calm sections you can jump out and swim or engage your friends with the squirt guns. After a beautiful paddle, you end the trip back at our riverside base camp where you can get dry, grab a snack and see pictures of yourself and your group paddling down the Deerfield.
There is nothing quite like challenging the river by yourself – try this solo adventure this season!
