The view was beautiful. My guide, Eon, was wonderful!! Great navigator, personable, humorous! He saved me from drowning twice, so he's officially my favorite person in the world!!

We had great guides, Madison and Ryan. Who started us out on the day with a trip to Worley Caves. Awesome time, even had several brave youngsters who were up to the more challenging (optional) climbs inside. We all had a blast the entire day. Good laughs, great times on the rapids. LOTS and LOTS of interesting facts along the... More

The trip was fun the river was not at peak level but the guides new their way around the river to make it fun and adventurous. John was our guide and he... More

Although we were "the motor" she let us get in several dangerous situations by running us into low hanging trees. This guide even fell out of the... More

Had a great time with Dave on the French Broad. He and the crew were great with my boys 7 & 10. They kept them safe, but very involved in the trip. They loved it! This was a great trip for the entire family. The water was warm and fun. We loved swimming the rapids and surfing. Would use them... More

My wife, myself, and 4 children (15, 13, 11, and 9 yo) went to Worley's Cave with Dave today. We really did not know what to expect. My kids thought we would just walk in the entrance, look around and walk out. However, much more fun!!!! Dave was a great guide in that he was safe but fun, taught us... More

Amazing afternoon rafting trip. Much prefer the small tour experience. Eaon and Laura were the best tour guides. Cliff jumping and opportunities that large companies don't offer. Very personable and much effort put in to make your experience great!
