We went up Saturday, Sept. 13 for the all day tubing trip. We were warned of higher than normal water levels but it wasn't bad. Jeffrey was very knowledgeable and all the other guides were great too. We were able to leave, go eat lunch, and come back for more tubing. Great day!

Wow. I am in shock at management's response to reviewer DROY's earlier post. Pulling and dragging a kayak for hours is just about the worst way to spend money. I would have had more fun lighting that same cash on fire...at least I would have known what I was getting into prior. "The choice to have fun or not -... More

This was a great experience! The man running the place when we were there was excellent! His name is Jeffery and he should be given a bonus. Wow! What great service. He was by himself and he did it all. Made certain that our canoe trip was 5*. All about safety and satisfaction. He has unbelievable name recall which adds... More

Five friends and I went tubing down the New River last Saturday and had a blast. Jeff and the asian lady that rented us the tubes were so very nice. Great hospitality. Best of all, everything was so organized. I took a similar trip last summer with one of the other companies nearby. It was ridiculous it was so disorganized.... More

We were first timers and a bit apprehensive. However, their staff made our trip fun and reassured us with their humor and obvious knowledge of their jobs. They were also half-the cost of their competitors. Don't miss it.

We spent 2.5 hours dragging our kayaks down the river (creek). The water was not deep enough to float for more than a few feet at a time before getting stuck on rocks. I understand water levels fluctuate, but there is only one explanation for selling kayaking tickets when the water is that low: money grabbing. If the water is... More

The choice to have fun or not - that power is yours! ~ Hi Droy0, Wahoo's Adventures had the highest number of kayakers and canoers ever at the time you attended. Yet, your review is the only one complaining of the low waters, something that is totally out of the control of Wahoo's. This response to your review is because... More

Just love tubing the New River--it's like a giant lazy river ride with views! And all the staffers at Wahoo's are so nice and friendly and helpful. This was our second visit and we had a Living Social, and I called for a day-before reservation (not a good idea!) but they really bent over backwards to help us and accommodate... More
