Whitewater Kayaking Near Lake George NY

Sacandaga Outdoor Center

Inflatable Kayaking on the Sacandaga River

Taking it to the next level, the inflatable kayaks mimic whitewater kayaking without the need to know how to eskimo roll if you flip (yes some do, you can just crawl back on). Available in both solo (by yourself) or tandem (two people front and back). This activity is for the adventure minded who are athletic, well coordinated, and prepared for the possibility of a flip and white water swim. Kayaking is a guide assisted hybrid not completely guide controlled as in rafting. You are accompanied by one of our guides in their own kayak. Previous kayak experience required. Minimum age is 16 years and maximum weight is 250 pounds. Kayaking is offered on specific days and trip times please check our calendar for availability.

The SOC Difference

Experiencethe SOC Difference


We Wash and Disinfect all personal gear after every use ( PFDs, Helmets, Spray Tops, Raft Boots, Wet Suits ) Every time!


We are the only outfitter located on the River. Located at the confluence of the Hudson and Sacandaga Rivers, just a short ride from both Lake George and Saratoga Springs. Your Trip ends back at our Raft Headquarters where you checked in, so there’s no need for a return bus trip. Spend more time on the River and less time on a bus!


We put the fun in rafting. Our rafts are equipped with water cannons and bailing buckets so the fun continues between the rapids. SOC has been providing fun memorable experiences for over 30 years!


We have the highest quality, best maintained gear on the river. We pride ourselves on offering the very best equipment to our guests!

Not Overcrowded

We don’t overbook or overfill our rafts or trips. We pride ourselves in the experience we’ve been providing our guests and groups for over 30 years!


We have the best trained, most experienced, and entertaining guides in the business. They Love what they do by sharing their unique character and style with SOC flare! Many of our guides are requested year after year by our returning guests and groups.

If this sounds overwhelming then rafting is a much better option. We do our very best to match guests to the appropriate activity so you have a great experience. Rafting is by far our most popular activity as it allows for interaction with family and friends and is a guide controlled activity.
