  • We had a blast, thought we were in a single raft as a group and ended up in inflatable kayaks. Guides did a great job well worth the adventure.  more »
  • The river is awesome, the guides are spectacular - what a fun experience. Who needs The New River when we have The Cheat!  more »
  • I really enjoyed our trip on the river. The woman who gave the safety overview at the beginning was very nice, matter of fact, and clear. Her dogs are also adorable and were very good about greeting guests as they showed up, which I appreciated. We went for the beginner's course as we had only been canoeing before, never white water rafting. We were in a boat with two smaller kids, and they seemed to have a fantastic time so this really is a great idea for the whole family. The guides are great about making sure you know what to do when and coordinating the raft as a team. They also let you get out of the raft and swim when the water is calm, which was nice. I liked the break halfway through for lunch (sandwiches, chips, and cookies). I did fall out of the raft at "The Meat Grinder" rapid which left me a little banged up, but the guides were great about getting me back into a raft safely, and because of the safety guidance at the beginning of the trip there doesn't seem to be any lasting damage, just some scrapes and bruises. I'd highly recommend this for anyone looking for something fun to do outdoors if you are in the area, just pay attention to the guides!!
  • My family and I went on a white water trip Saturday with cheat river outfitters. It was amazing. The three guides that were with us made our trip very enjoyable. They knew lots about the river and surrounding area, and they made sure we smiled every step of the way. We will be going back in the spring. Thank you all for making our trip special.
