The fearless five (photo below), minus Nate, are here for the big weekend. Frank S, Eric K, Mark E, Mark L, Jay C. and a special guest are also happily present and part of the dream team. With water as warm as a bath and skies toasty, August is the most popular month to raft the Hudson River Gorge. Saturdays in August are by far the most occupied days of the season. We floated our 10,000th rafter through the Hudson River Gorge this month! That's 10,000 rafters in our nine years as North Creek Rafting Company.
Thanks to rafters near and far who float commercial raft trips!

Governor Cuomo: “Tourism is serious business”
by Pete DeMola
"North Creek-area river guides said they’ve seen upticks in business since the state launched a sustained tourism push four years ago, including large investments in advertising, the development of new mobile apps and massive publicity events like the Adirondack Challenge, which always comes with a wave of publicity for a region that had historically complained about being overlooked.

Wanted you to know what a lovely job your two guides (Jim and Frank) did with our group. They were knowledgeable of the area and history, reverent towards the environment, humorous, consistently pleasant. You've got a great approach and we'll be back.

Good afternoon Nate, We took an amazing trip with you a few weeks back and know you guys had a photographer on the water. Can you send me the name or link to his site ? Trip was amazing and we will definitely be returning...possibly in a few weeks with a different one of my brothers. thanks again, Peter

My father-in-law and I joined you for a day of rafting last week on July 3rd. It was my first white water rafting and we both had a great time. Your company was organized, professional, knowledgeable and fun. Mark was a great guide for our boat with lots of great information and fun surfing the waves. As a small business owner, I know the importance of getting feedback; it's not easy running a small business so I wanted to take this opportunity to tell you thanks. We will definitely recommend you to all our relatives in Vermont and hope to also be back for another trip with you guys. All the best,

Hi Nate, I know this is a bit late, but I wanted to thank you so much for all of the accommodations you had made for my group on the rafting trip. It was so kind of you to take all the food allergies into consideration and for you wife to have phoned over and ensured of what could and could not be eaten. Our guide Dave was absolutely phenomenal and not only made sure we had such a great time, but helped to make this experience something that will be memorable for a lifetime! Once again thank you for everything and we hope to see you guys again next summer! Warmly,
Bryan R. - Bayside, NY

Hi Nate / Becky, Just wanted to say thank you for a wonderful time on Saturday. We had a couple of first timers on the trip and we all had a great time - I think I got them hooked. Joe Durma (our guide) was great, he really gave us a good ride and he fit right in with the cast of characters I brought. All in all, I just want to tell you guys to keep up the great work and we hope to see you next year. Keep on paddling!!! Regards,

If you are looking for a great experience on a white water rafting trip, look no further. Our family of 4 enjoyed a tremendous day of rafting the Hudson. Their equipment is top notch. The rafts, wet suits, helmets were all in pristine shape. What really makes the difference though, is the staff. The management and guides of North Creek are outstanding. Joe, Mark and Becky were tremendous hosts. It's clear that they want you to have fun and encourage you to do so. It's true that there are some serious parts of the river, and those were managed very professionally. On the other sections, it was all about enjoying the beautiful scenery and the river. We'll be back again.

We went out Sunday on the Hudson Day Trip with Frank as our guide and just wanted to comment on what a great experience we had. Frank was outstanding; funny, knowledgeable, in control of the boat. The food was great and the equipment was all in great shape. Even on a cold, rainy day, we had a great experience. We'll be back. Thanks,
Steve L. - Webster, NY

Dear Nate and Becky: We always use you guys because you have the best equipment and the best guides. We have been rafting on the river for many years. This last trip was fantastic! The most fun and exciting of all the rides. Can't wait to go again!

Hello, Just wanted to take a second and say thank you. I did the Hudson river trip today (3 May) with Mark as the guide. From the second I pulled into your parking area staff was available, ready to answer questions and point me in the right direction. This was the case the entire day. Your staff was always friendly, intelligent and professional. Mark did an exceptional job patiently providing direction to all rafters and filling the idle time with all kinds of stories and interesting tidbits of info. I know next to nothing about rafting gear but everything issued seemed to function well and it inspired trust, it screamed top notch safety. I'm typically a picky eater, do not like black beans, guacamole or sweet potatoes. In an effort to be polite, I ate the southwestern wrap provided at lunch and it was terrific. I'm not claiming to be a convert but your menu got me rethinking these ingredients (the cookies were awesome too). Your organization is top notch. It is apparent you care about your customers and their experience more than the bottom line. Thank you for the experience, the hospitality and for doing what you do. Respectfully,
Mike W. - Gulfport, MS

Hi Nate, Thanks for the trip on Saturday, Aug 3. My family and I had a great time! The boys had never done anything like this before, and the experience was really thrilling for them. Mark was a great guide and he did a great job making sure it was exciting. I'm sure we'll be back for another ride through the Gorge.

Dear North Creek Rafting, Thank you so much for the most perfect day on the river! It will be a day our family remembers forever. Our guide, Mark, was fun and very knowledgeable about the river, plus he educated us on the entire area including flora, fauna and geology. The lunch was delicious and everyone agreed the whole day was a blast. Can't believe we waited so many years to do this. I will recommend your business to anyone interested in rafting in the Adirondacks! Hope to see you all again next year.
Laurie D. - Willsboro, NY
|Tuesday, July 23, 2013
We just wanted to say, "Thank you, again!" for the exhilarating day we had rafting!!! Our Guide, Frank, was outstanding and we all said that we hope to have him again as our guide!! His knowledge and expertise made our day absolutely perfect! To get into a raft, with no knowledge nor experience of White Water Rafting is a bit nerve wracking...Frank showed his ability to lead right away and we all knew that we could trust him in any and all situations!! Thank you, again, for a terrific day!!
Cindy B. - Albion, NY
|Sunday, July 21, 2013
Nate, Thank you so much for providing our Boy Scout Troop with a great white water rafting experience. I heard that everyone had a great time.

We will also give anyone interested in white water rafting your name! Thanks again,

Hi Nate, Becky, and Emilee, Thank you for a great first-time experience! We were so excited about this trip and it met all our expectations that we are sure to go rafting again. I was a little nervous with two daughters being age 9 and 11. The instruction beforehand, the proper gear, and Emilee's guide calls kept us all safe. It was a lot of fun to get out of the raft and swim a bit and to stop for a tasty lunch. Everyone in our party had fun hitting the whitewater and the professional photos captured all the right moments!

Hi Nate & Brian, We just wanted to let you what a blast we had on the "high" waters of the Hudson on our honeymoon trip with you guys on June 13th! The ride was so much fun and the scenery was spectacular. We've already recommended you to a number of friends who will be vacationing in the Adirondacks this summer, as well as telling our host in Lake George to simply take down all the other flyers, because you guys are first class all the way! We actually stopped by CafÃ© Sarah to grab sandwiches for dinner after the awesome ones we had for lunch on the river with you!

Nate, As always you guys knocked it out of the park. Our guides were the best and we always get a kick out of the them and you remembering us and BSing about past trips. Thanks to Nick for taking pictures and forwarding me ones from trips gone by. WE FINALLY GOT THE WEATHER AND CONDITIONS!!!! The boys are looking forward to seeing the video from this trip so please let me know how we can get a hold of that. Thanks again for working with me on the numbers, the guys who dropped are kicking themselves after we told them of the conditions. I would like to reserve for next year on Saturday April 5th for 18. Thanks again for running a great rafting company.

Nate, A hearty thanks to you and your staff for the awesome Hudson River rafting trip on April 20th. We selected your rafting company based on the outstanding reviews and we are happy to say that everything about North Creek Rafting exceeded our already high expectations. Our guides (Bazil and Nick) were very experienced and entertaining, the equipment provided was high quality and clean, and at 8.6 feet it could not have been a better day to take on the Hudson. From start to finish, our entire rafting experience was phenomenal and we look forward to future trips with North Creek Rafting. Please extend our sincere appreciation to the rest of your staff as well. Best of luck- PS: Are there any more pictures/videos from the April 20th rafting trip? Our entire raft got tossed into the Hudson by "The Monster" and we thought it would be awesome to see if the GoPro caught it in action. Thanks!

Hi Nate - Thanks for the great ride on Monday. A lot longer than we expected, but we had a fantastic time. You have a first class operation there...I've gone with a couple other companies in the past, but the quality and condition of your equipment and your guides were top notch. Well done - I wish you best with your business. Just wondering if you would send us the recipe for the veggie wraps - they were delicious! Thanks

Hello to you all, We did Rafting with your company at the end of September and wanted to send you some pictures from that day.

Have a great day.

Hey guys, We went on the day trip this past Thurs, the 26th and had a blast! Frank was our guide and we could not have asked for someone better. He was so fun and knowledgable and made us all feel so safe! Basil was fun to have in the other boat as well. You guys have a great company, with amazing guides and workers and we had the best time, even with the rain and cooler weather!! thanks so much!!

Hi Becky and North Creek crew, Thank you so much for a spectacular day! My husband and I had a blast. We are already talking about planning an overnight group trip next summer. Our friends would definitely love it too! I am so glad that I stumbled upon you. Thank you for the delicious lunch too! We were not expecting something as delicious as that! We are actually going to try to replicate it for dinner one night this week. Thanks again and if you have the website for the pics from today, do you mind passing it along?

Nate, I don't know if this is a strange request or not but wondering if you would be willing to share the veggie wrap recipe with us so we can make them back in the city. Scott and I both agree that Becky should be selling her stuff at the coffee shop that is going to open across the street. The wraps and the cookies were great!
Lauren W. - New York, NY
|Saturday, April 21, 2012
Once again we had a great time despite the lower than normal water. I was in the boat with guide Joe and he was by far the best guide I've had to date. He made an otherwise ho-hum river all the more entertaining and fun. If he is around next year we wold love to have him as our guide.
Jay N. - Toms River, NJ

Hello, I was there today, July 3, on the boat with Basil. First, it was part of my bachelor party and we had an amazing time. I am so glad we chose north creek rafting. I will be back. Also, is there any way to purchase the CD of pictures from my boat. I didn't get them and my future wife really wants them. Also the lunch was awesome. If you want to send the wrap recipe. And cookies. Ha ha Thanks.

Hi Nate and Becky,
I just wanted to take a few minutes to say what an amazing time we all had whitewater rafting on Saturday, June 4, 2011! Your rafting equipment is top notch, your staff was friendly and professional, and we LOVED Frank! He was such a great river guide! He was knowledgeable, funny, and took some great photos of us on the raft. He really gave us a great day with memories to last a lifetime. We had such a blast and the spot he chose for lunch was beautiful. A few years ago, I went rafting with another company on the Hudson River and it was a terrible experience. The staff was very unprofessional and were groping at some of the females in my group. We were very uncomfortable and crossed rafting the Hudson off the list. I decided to go back again this year though and went with your company. I'm so glad I did! I would highly recommend your company to anyone that asked about rafting. I already wrote about it in my Facebook Photo Album (https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.594970422662.2094391.32102381&l=d4161b393e). By the way, we also loved the photos taken of us in the Narrows. The CD came quickly and there were so many shots taken! Normally when I go rafting I get only one picture and someone always manages to be behind someone else. My fiance and I already picked out 2 pictures for the slideshow playing at our wedding.
I would like to go on to say that I loved that we were the only raft in our group. It was great to just raft the river without having to keep stopping so everyone could catch up. I have been whitewater rafting for 11 years now and this was by far the best experience!
Thank you for the amazing day and great memories! We'll see you again next year...if not this fall!
Thank you, Charise

Just wanted to send you a note to thank you and your team for an excellent rafting experience this past Saturday. You had us kitted out in all the right gear for a great day on the river. We were all grateful for the wetsuits as it allowed us to swim at various times even though the water was "fresh". The whole team was friendly and fun and the experience was excellent. Everyone in our group had a brilliant time & David was a really good guide, very experienced & calm when we might have thought the rapids were testing! Thank you all very much!

Thank you for an awesome rafting trip on Tuesday. This was a first-time rafting experience for us and it far exceeded our expectations. Basil was very interesting and fun. He made sure that it was a memorable experience for our family. As the mother I especially appreciated all of the safety measures that were in place:)
The lunch was fabulous. Please thank Becky for sending me the recipes already.
We will definitely pass you name onto our friends.

We totally lucked out when my brother chose your group from a random Web search - since one of my daughters is a vegetarian, it was the mention of vegetarian lunches that caught his attention. We had a great day on the river with Becky and the other guides, and it was a lot of fun being part of such a small group. We're already talking about making it a yearly event - thanks so much!
P.S. - could you send the recipe for the wrap you served at lunch? It was delicious!

Our vacation to the northeast has sadly come to an end. It was a fantastic trip full of memorable moments. I just wanted to say THANKS again for a wonderful rafting trip. By the end of the day, I was very tired and don't think I was able to express my gratitude to you for such a great experience as I would have liked to. Becky (and Justin) were fantastic guides! It was an incredible experience for all of us, and for the young ones, I'm especially happy for that. Thanks again. Next time we make it out there we'll definitely look for you, and will definitely spread the word around here to others thinking about a rafting trip.

Becky and Nate,
We all had a fantastic day with you last Thursday. Sunny is still talking about jumping off the rock with grandma, swimming in the river, spinning in the raft and of course the great lunch. The enclosed photo is Guide Becky by Sunny.
Thanks again for a perfect day.

My wife and I had a great experience rafting with you two weeks ago on August 5, and for that we thank you very much. Since that time, I have been constantly bugged by my wife for what I remember about the contents of our delicious lunch. Now, as a guy, I really didn't pay that much attention to what was in the wrap, just enjoyed it. If Becky would be so kind, I would really appreciate a recipe or just a list of the ingredients. Thanks for any information you can send to quiet my wife. We tend to get up to the New England/upstate NY area about every 5 years, and I am looking forward to another day of fun with you on the Hudson. See you then.

It was a great trip, Justin is a funny and good guide and he mellowed everyone out to relax and have an exciting time. I am recommending your company already, as a small rafting company did a lot of spins, surfing, etc that is missing on the really BIG rafting companies. We all had fun.

We had a great time rafting with 10 people in the raft. Guide Jason was great! The rest of your staff were very helpful and informative as well. We will be rafting with you again in the near future.

Nate...our trip went off yesterday without a hitch, David as our trusty guide. A wonderful time was had by all and we're already thinking about planning a trip for August with "the boys". Our lunches were delicious, the water was thrilling and even the forecasted gloomy weather turned beautiful as the day went on. Thank you for taking such good care of us old ladies with our darling daughters. Hope your trip to California was fun and the wedding lovely.

Thanks Nate. For everything. We had a great time the whole weekend. North Creek is such a great place. So many of the guys who have never been rafting before couldn't stop talking about going back again next year. Thanks again for a great weekend.

Our group had a blast this weekend with you guys. The river and weather were not at their best but that didnâ€™t keep you guys from showing us a great trip. I can say that because we have been doing this trip for the past 7 years and had our share of bad times with and because of other rafting companies. Your gear was well kept and in great condition as one would expect unless of course you had gone to other companies. The guides were well informed, personable, and cool to hang out with for 4 hours on the river. One thing that should not be overlooked or underrated is the KICK A$$ vegan burritos and the chocolate mint chocolate chip cookies you served for our mid trip break. This was actually better than some of the post rafting meals we had received from companies in the past. I could go on and on but basically I wanted to let you and your staff at North Creek Rafting are doing it the right way. I know this because we have been with people doing it the wrong way. Keep up the great work, see you next year. April 16th for 14 people if you have the book ready.

I hope that you enjoyed the rest of your weekend. =) I wanted to drop you a quick line to thank you for the fantastic time we both had on our exciting adventure down the Moose! I am learning that there are very few things like a good trip down a river to remind you that you are ALIVE. Everyone else that we met were really cool and all the details of the trip were excellently handled. Thanks for taking my last minute reservation, the gear which was impeccably clean, and the expert guidance and tutelage from ALL of the guides on our trip. Plus, please convey our compliments to Becky your wife, for the *delicious* vittles. We appreciated it and will soon be back up to the North Country, I bet.

Dear Nate and Becky, Jeff and I really enjoyed the trip this first Sunday in October. Check out the article I wrote for the SOLAR Ray December issue at solaroutdoors.org. I'm looking forward to receiving your recipe for those great burritos. I promise not to reveal the source.

Thanks so much for such a great time. I had my bachelor party up there this past weekend, and we all had a blast. Eric was a great guide and it was a lot of fun having Heather in our raft as well. All in all, a first class operation. I know we will be back.

Hi Nate & Becky,
I wanted to extend my many thanks to your whole crew and especially Heather and Bazil. I rafted with you guys this past Tuesday with my husband, myself, and two other co-workers from Heather's 'other' job. Despite my shock that day (having fallen out of the boat and being rescued by Bazil's raft) I am so glad that I had this experience with such wonderful friends. It was truly a trip of a lifetime :) The next day I was ready to go again and see everything that I missed. I think my husband could become a rafting addict!!! Hope you all are having a wonderful time. Thank you again

Thanks for the recipe, I'm looking forward to making it.
My husband Mike and I had a great time on Saturday, it was our first time rafting and it was so much fun. Everyone was so nice, easy to talk to and our guide Brian was very helpful.
Keep up the great work and next time we're in the area, we'll definitely be scheduling another rafting adventure. Enjoy the rest of your summer.

Hi Nate and Becky~~ Thanks for a terrific experience today! My nephew, Sean, had a huge smile on his face the whole day -- and that's saying a lot for a 14 year old kid!
Thanks again for everything today and I look forward to rafting with you in the future!

I just wanted to pass on my thanks for the fantastic day we had rafting. My wife, daughter and I all agreed it was the highlight of our US vacation, which included a number of great experiences in NY state and New England. I also hope that you and your wife enjoyed your first anniversary.

Good Moring Nate and Becky- Wow! My daughter and I had a terrific time rafting with your company last Saturday! This was the first time down the river for both of us, she is thirteen so of course â€œfearâ€ is not a word she is familiar with, I on the other hand was very nervous and did not know what I was in for. It took me just a few minutes to get over my fear, and to totally enjoy the experience. We are already planning our next trip and trying to talk everyone we know into joining us, you may need more rafts!!

Thanks so much, Becky!
My friends and I can't stop talking about how much fun we had yesterday, and how fun Heather was. It was neat for me because I have been bugging my friends for a while to go rafting, and that was the group I came up with. It was a bunch of random friends, most of whom didn't know each other! So it was awesome to have a great experience like that that brought great people all together! We loved it, and can't wait to come again.
Thanks so much for the food recipes. I can't wait to try! Everything was so delicious. We thought we were getting PB & J. That was so special. And as I told Heather, I am very earth conscious myself so noticed little things like reusable cups, reusable bags for the food, etc.
We will certainly go through your company again, and had a blast despite the terrential downpour.
Thanks again! Adrianne

Nate, Thanks for another great day. Everyone had a good time. Andi was a little sore the next day after her ride through the rapids. Hope to get up again this fall. I'll be in touch.

My husband and I had an absolutely wonderful time rafting with you last Tuesday. We also loved the veggie burritos that you all brought along with you for our lunch. Would you mind passing along the recipe?
Thanks sooo much and again we had a blast and will definitely reccommend you guys to any of our friends interested in rafting!

Becky, Nate and Eric, Just wanted to drop you a note to thank you for the very memorable trip down the Hudson last week. We bumped into the Jankowski Family last night, all decked out in their newly purchased NC Rafting Co. shirts and were thrilled to hear that they too had a beautiful day under your guidance. Also heard that they were treated to the bean burritos and cookies that we devoured during our lunch. Wondering if it might be easy enough for you to pass the recipes on to us. I came home and purchased all the ingredients that I thought were in the burrito, but have not attempted to make them! Many thanks.

Hi Nate and Becky,
We just wanted to thank you for wonderful time we had on July 5th.. We had rode on the raft with Nate. He did a wonderful job navigating us through the rapid and the views were beautiful. Also, thanks for all your information on the hiking trails In Minerva. Becky had made a wonderful lunch the day we went out. I was wondering if I could get the recipe? Thanks again for a Great Day on the River!!!

I went on one of your trips this past Saturday, we were the two person raft with Eric as our guide. I wanted to say that we had a lot of fun, the food was great and you guys were all wonderful! We look forward to coming back!

Thank you so much for that recipe. I am very excited to try it. It is very evident to me that I chose the perfect rafting company for us. I had previously called about three other companies, and googled at least 15 before deciding to go with you. When speaking to you on the phone it became evident that you knew a lot more about rafting in the North Creek area and that you were laid back, relaxed, and hospitable, three things I found very important. Thanks for a wonderful rafting experience. I know we'll be back next year, maybe for high water in the spring. Take Care!!

We wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for a great first rafting experience for our family. We just received the photo in the mail yesterday and we've been meaning to send along this letter since our adventure on August 21. We had a fabulous time and the personal attention shown by you, Rebecca, and Eric made it so much more enjoyable. We watched the other companies and the way they packed their rafts and were on top of one another throughout the trip; that isn't what we experienced. We specifically wanted to send along a little something for Eric for showing us such a great day and making it a fun experience for us and the kids. Can you please give this to him and thank him for us. All the best luck to you in this venture. We'll be back!
