Pocono Whitewater Rafting Adventures Pirate Trips

Yo ho ho, the mighty Lehigh River is being invaded by our very own crew of Pocono Pirates! Arrgh, Captain Jack and his crew are armed with water cannons and planning a friendly attack on your whitewater raft. Pocono Pirate Rafting is an exclusive family style whitewater rafting adventure with Class I, II and a touch of III whitewater rapids. We have worked with the top raft designers in the world to create a custom pirate ship. It is only available at Pocono Whitewater in Jim Thorpe, PA.
