Deerfield River Funyaks
Deerfield River Funyaks are self-bailing, inflatable kayaks that accommodate one or to people. These crafts are especially great for rafting fans introducing young children to a life of white water rafting trips. Children age 10 can take on their on funyak while children age five and up can board one of the double funyaks. These rapids are gentle, featuring Class I-II, to keep things calm for the whole family to enjoy a day on the water together. This laid back eight-mile trek lasts about three hours and ends with a tasty picnic or cookout.
