Stand-Up Paddle Boards

The sport of Stand-Up Paddle (SUP) Boarding has exploded. Stand-Up paddling originated in Hawaii and has traveled around the globe. A combination of surfing and kayaking, SUPs are great for all ages and offer a great core workout.

Book Your Trip

Rent one of Crab Apple’s stable boards and tour the nearly one mile long reservoir behind our base on the Mohawk Trail in the Berkshires. We have an easy access ramp to flat water right behind our base and you will get a quick lesson (if needed ) before paddling away from shore. Paddle left, paddle right and get moving in a straight line on our inflatable boards. Head downstream and check out the scenery – wildlife sightings of beaver, geese, merganser ducks, turkey vultures and eagles are common.

In the summer, the water in the reservoir really warms up – into the 70’s, possibly 80 degrees! Definitely jump in for a swim or dip to cool off from the hot sun during your paddle … maybe 2 or 3 dips!

When you are done with your paddle, leave your board and gear by the ramp. Your car is just feet away and you can head to the changing rooms to get changed. Super easy access from your car right to the river.

Two hour rental $35 weekday, $38 weekend. Board and life jacket included.

We Are Family Owned and Operated same as Maine

We are a three-generation family-owned company and we love what we do! Since our inception in 1983, our family has been imbedded in every aspect of our business. We are the reservation takers, the guides, the guide trainers, and the customer service specialists. Every detail of our business is infused with our fun vibe and family-oriented atmosphere. As a result, we have grown exponentially and we are proud to have the largest New England white water rafting operation.

Excellent Riverside Facility

Our Massachusetts base camp sits along the beautiful Deerfield River. Cookouts after trips on the outdoor patio above the river are delightful. Two of our trips float right to our base so there is no shuttle ride after rafting! Our base includes a fun souvenir shop, a comfortable space to watch photos of your rafting trip, a beer and wine liquor license, comfortable changing and restroom facilities.

As much as we love having fun, we always keep your safety a priority. We have over 100 rafts and inflatable kayaks of different sizes to ensure the best experience on the river.
