We went with 2 other couples on this adventure. It was my first time but not for most of the group. BEN was the best guide!! We laughed so much. I was really worried about falling out of the raft but somehow we all managed to stay in!! Mostly it was due to Ben's knowledge and experience on the water!... More

With just 4 of us going for a quick weekend away, this rafting trip was one of the best we've ever done. Our guide, Blake, no doubt made the trip what it was: seriously fun! He was entertaining and a clearly professional guide who knew how to make the the most out of the Nantahala. We appreciated his humor and... More

Our family spent the weekend at Nantahala and our first adventure was whitewater rafting with Wildwater Nantahala. We've been whitewater rafting before so we knew what to expect. The team at Wildwater kept our group entertained and informed with what to expect on our trip. Our guide, Jane, was very experienced and provided insightful information about the history of the...

Went with my mother on the whitewater rafting and ziplining. We stayed in a yurt which was the best camping experience I have ever had. It was our first time rafting. It was very exciting and Emily, our tour guide gave us a thrilling ride! I will definitely go again!

Took a group of 6, including 4 teens, rafting with this company Labor Day weekend. We had an absolute blast. Only 1 of us had ever been rafting on the Nantahala previously. We will use this company again. Can't wait for our next Wildwater excursion. We have also been ziplining with this company. All of the guides are excellent at... More

Labor Day weekend and here we are from FL going the first time on the river rafting. We were a little nervous until we had one of the instructors advise us on what to be prepared for. We loaded into the bus for the ride to the rafts with our instructor TY. From that point on, the fun began. TY... More

I went alone to get away and over come a fear of heights. The guides were amazing and funny! They worked with me on the first two zips and I was having a blast the entire trip. It's something I recommend highly for just you or a group.

Every aspect of our experience was wonderful. The rafting experience will be remembered for a lifetime, and the guide, James was amazing! Our Zip Canopy tour was exceptional and our two Guides, Lujon and Anne were entertaining, very safe, and so nice. The zip experience was not scary, but it was exhilarating and breathtaking! Wildwater is going to give you... More

We simply cannot say enough about the wonderful experience we had with the Wildwater Nantahala Outfitters. We had not whitewatered in several years and were somewhat anxious at first. We met "Cricket" and she reassured us that we would be fine & she assigned us to "Jane". Jane is undoubtedly the very best guide, a master of the river and... More
