Whenever anybody thinks of white water, the first thing they think of is a raft. The Raft has been a white water mainstay every since the beginning. The Rafts here at White Water Adventurers are all self bailing rafts, unlike rafts you may get at other outfitters. What this means is you and your friends can spend more time enjoying the beautiful Yough River Gorge and less time pouring water out of your boat.
New for 2017! Reserve your equipment rental online!
Cruise the river in style in a P.P.B. ! They go by many names, including shredder and personal paddle boat, however what you call it, it delivers the same thing each and every time, an incredible ride down the river for you and a friend. P.P.B.’s are extremely maneuverable. They are designed with two large pontoons on the outside with two smaller ones connecting the outside pontoons. The middle of the P.P.B. is raised off the water and is self bailing.
P.P.B.’s are for two people only. If you would like to rent a P.P.B. for the Middle Youghiogheny, please call us right away at 1-800-WWA-RAFT.
So, you’re looking for a challenge on the Middle Yough? Well, we have the perfect idea for you. Rent an Inflatable kayak from White Water Adventurers. Inflatable kayaks provide kayak-like performance, but are much more stable then a real kayak. This means that you can get to know the river up close and personal without being a great kayaker. All of our inflatable kayaks are very maneuverable and fast. They are all self bailing.
Inflatable kayaks are great when you and a group of friends are coming rafting down the Yough. A huge advantage is that you and only you are in control of your boat. You can get as wet as you like. We also rent two-person inflatable kayaks. This are designed with one person sitting behind the other.

Raft Rental Procedures for the Middle Yough
When renting equipment for the Middle Yough, a launch permit is not required. This is the opposite of the Lower Yough, where a launch permit is required.
Call White Water Rentals (800-992-7238) to reserve your choice of equipment. ONLY a $10.00/craft deposit required.
On the day of your trip, arrive at White Water Adventurers’ office 30 minutes prior to your scheduled time. This will allow you enough time to obtain a PFD. If you have any items you are taking with you, coolers, fishing equipment, etc, please have that with you and ready to go.
From there, a member of our rental staff will load your equipment onto the equipment truck for you and transport it to the Middle Yough put-in, roughly 10 miles away in Confluence Pennsylvania. You will ride the distance in a bus provided by White Water Adventurers. After arriving at the Middle Yough put-in the staff will give you a quick talk-up about white water safety. You will then proceed down the river at your own pace.
After traveling 10 miles down the Middle Yough you will arrive back in Ohiopyle. You will notice large signs on the river-left informing you of the Middle Yough take-out. This is where you will exit the river. A rental staff member will help you bring your equipment ashore. You will then walk the two blocks back to our offices.
