Are you weekending near Harper’s Ferry? Are you looking for a relaxing way to enjoy the outdoors after weeks of being in quarantine?
Grab your family and jump in our unique 6-person raft, configured with padded swivel seats to catch breathtaking views of Spring colors in comfort. During the week we’re used to having the river to ourselves, and did we mention we’ll do the driving? See this historic river pass once described by Thomas Jefferson as “worth the trip across the Atlantic” in all its glory, dotted with countless historic relics, geologic points of interest, wildlife and blossoms.
