Square Eddy Expeditions

We are a small adventure company located on Main Street in North Creek, NY.  We offer full day and overnight whitewater rafting trips on the upper Hudson River, far upstream of New York City, in the beautiful Adirondack Mountains.


Linc and Lori floatin’ with Eddy

We offer an incredibly scenic wilderness trip that includes an extensive safety talk by a New York State licensed guide, a hearty lunch, gear, consistent class II & III rapids (with some class IV rapids when mother nature cooperates) and most of all, plenty of “laugh out loud fun!”

Who’s Eddy?

Well.. he isn’t a guy selling stereos on the street of New York! Square Eddy is a place on the Upper Hudson River. An “eddy” is a calm spot out of the main channel, behind a rock, or after a rapid where the water is calm and the river slowly re-circulates upstream.

At Square Eddy on The Hudson River the water is calm after the Osprey’s Nest rapid as it flows through an area that is almost square before it drops down into Carter’s Landing.

The old time loggers were running logs down these rivers way before any of us rafters got here, and they had common sense names for different sections of the river. Cedar Ledge is a section right at the confluence of The Indian and Hudson Rivers where cedar trees grow right out of the rock. The Narrows is the section where the river channel is deep in a gorge and drops through some of the best whitewater in the east.

There are many old time names that have stuck, you’ll just have to come out and see where they are for yourself. Just remember “Eddy” isn’t that really cool climber you met at the gym last week…
