The owner of Wahoo's and his staff are simply the best in NC. I have known them for 12 years, and the fun that they provide is family and friends appropriate. When you think fun, just call Wahoo's!

When I went here I was expecting to kayak in the not river not drag my boat through three inch deep water. The parts that were deep enough to kayak we ended up getting stuck. The scenery was nice and our guide Jeffrey was very knowledgeable about the river. I am willing to try this place again after it rains... More

Usually very experienced, fun, and safety conscience guides. Make sure water is running high before you go on one of the trips if not you may get stuck a lot on rocks and not as fun and thrilling rapids. Deli Lunch is included in price!

This Summer(Early June) my family and I spent a wonderful day on the Watauga River. Located in Elizabethton, TN and a short drive from our cabin in Banner Elk it was a perfect oppurtunity to experience the beautiful mountains. When we arrived the staff was very polite and cordial. Their location is top notch(Picnic tables, patio, river side, hot showers,... More

Overall, the experience was one-of-a-kind awesome. Totally affordable for the experience. In September, myself and two friends went white water rafting (wwr) with Wahoo on the Nolichucky River. My hometown is Boone, NC, where Wahoo is based, and while I've wwr a number of times growing up, it had been a while since I'd been on a river, let alone... More

I spent the afternoon kayaking with my son, aged 12, and a great friend, aged 73. It was fun for each of us at our different ages. Wahoos did a great job setting us up and allowed us to spend as much time on the river as we wanted. (It wasn't busy) It was all of our first time out,... More

We rafted (actually was like tubing) in the Elizabethton, TN outpost. The customer service received by the lady at Wahoo's at Boone was very good, the same was the affable guide Lucas on the rafting. We believe this river is not the one to choose for rafting not even for beginners, it is a very boring experience. We did this... More

Our family had an excellent time river rafting with Robert as our guide. Everyone (from age 9 to 75) had a blast and enjoyed Robert's pleasant company and story telling. He was very helpful both on and off the river, even offering to show us a local waterfall spot and also recommending a place for us to have dinner.

In late June 2014 I took my two kids 16 and 12, with two of their friends tubing with Wahoo's. The day was awesome, a little cool in the morning but then the sun came out and our second trip was nice and warm. The employees at Wahoo's were wonderful. Alex, Jeffery, Hunter and Chris were so helpful and gave... More

Wow. The owner is crazy. I've never had someone speak to me in such a disrespectful manner. I almost thought it was a prank. This business is a sham. They will lie to you about the water and weather conditions just to get you on the raft and make their money. Read the other 57 terrible reviews before you book... More
