I can't begin to tell you what a wonderful time the Girl Scouts had being on the river today. Although it was cold we had a blast! The staff was absolutely fabulous. They were so attentive to our needs. We had many questions due to the fact this was our first tubing trip, but the staff answered them and were... More

We had a group of 8 ages 14 to 46. Great day on the river even though it rain all day. Josh and Chaz were our guides for the day and we had a really good time. Lunch was good. The river was up due to all the rain making the rapids really fun. Guides were great and really knew... More

My wife, 10 year old son, and I did the Nolichucky raft trip and we had the best time. Patrick, the group leader, was terrific, and an awesome bus driver. His jokes were funny and he was just a nice guy. Chaz was the guide on our raft and he was great! He knew virtually everything about the river and... More

We made reservations ahead of time. Gentleman we spoke to was ver cordial and courteous. We took the 3 hour canoe trip down the New River. Registration on location went quickly but we waited what seemed forever to board the bus to our location to put in the canoes. People kept jumping ahead eventhough they could clearly see we were...

I am currently 23 weeks pregnant and was reluctant to try any water sport. We stopped by the Wahoo office to inquire about kayaking and tubing. The ladies in the office were very helpful and reassured me that it would be safe. My husband and I went kayaking and tubing on the New River and had a great time. We... More

After reading reviews I knew this was the company to go with. The people were very friendly and helpful and knowledgeable. We took our 8 and 10 year old on the Watauga Rapids trip. The rapids all felt like class I Rapids. We were very disappointed as we thought it would be a little rougher and faster. It felt like... More

I do agree with some of the other reviews that the older gentleman and Asian lady were not as friendly as they could have been. We had to wait 45 minutes past our arrival time to board the bus for the rafting trip. The outposts at Watauga and New River were somewhat adequate places for restroom and shower facilities. Both...

We took a kayak trip down the New River having rented equipment from Wahoo's. Basically a great day. It took us about 3 1/2 hours to go down the river at a leisurely pace. The scenery was beautiful and there were not too many other folks on the river despite it being the Monday after the July 4 weekend. Check-in... More

I called and spoke to a young lady, who was extremely nice and helpful, a few weeks before our vacay. We showed up at their location on 321 just a mile outside of Boone, and as soon as I walked in and heard the guy talking (dont know his name, older dude I'm assuming the owner) I got a bad... More

I have been white water rafting several times and Wahoo is by far the best company I've seen so far. We went down the Nolichucky (sp?) this past Saturday with my 11yo son and 14yo daughter. Our guide, Jamie, did a FANTASTIC job navigating us down the river. In fact, the Wahoo team was just incredible. There were two times... More
