We have lived in the area for 20 years but never went tubing. We chose the $20 lazy tubing. The registering on line was simple. The directions were clear. The driver was prompt. He drove us out down the river where we floated back. There is another company that is the big fish in the area and owns their own... More

Arrived at the site and was immediately taken to the put in site by Ian in the van. She provided us with information on the way and was most pleasant. It would be very helpful if the company had...

These guys are great :) The online booking was super simple and we even printed and filled out our waivers in advance. All we had to do was arrive at the meeting point and enjoy the ride!!! Can't wait to do it again next summer!!!!

For a family of first timers, HME was great. We rafted down the Watauga (which is freezing water!), got soaked and loved it. We look forward to returning and trying the more advance trip. The raft guides are super and make a fun time for everyone. Even the bus ride was a blast with the comedy team of Matt and... More

Lots of fun and plan to wet....I mean soaked! Great guides, scenery, and entertainment! Glad we chose a sunny day as the river water is quite cold.

My sisters and I signed up for the Nolichucky trip which was cancelled. Matt and company quickly accommodated us on the Watauga trip. Despite the large crowd, the guides managed to get us moving quickly, were highly entertaining and provided a memorable experience. Special recognition to Jamie, our adopted son/nephew! We will definitely be back to take the trip to... More
