If your time is limited or you just want a taste of what the New River is all about, The Dash is for you. This adventure takes you through roller coaster waves, a few challenging Class II-III rapids, and includes the opportunity for a jump rock. To cap it off, the float takes you right under The New River Gorge Bridge, providing a unique perspective of the iconic landmark that you can not get from anywhere but on the river.
For a magical twist, choose the Sunset River Dash – an evening trip that gives you the chance to marvel at how the golden sunset lights up the scenic New River Gorge.
