We spent a Saturday with the awesome staff at Wahoo's Adventures...every part of the day, from beginning to end was fun! With our two boys, ages 19 and 11..it is often hard to find something fun for them both...this trip did the trick! Patrick, Thomas, Burt, and Amanda were all knowledgeable, kind and hilarious! As we rafted down the Nolichucky...it... More

We spent the afternoon tubing, canoeing and kayaking on 24JUN with two teenagers at the New River. The new facilities are clean and convenient. Best of all, the guides and attendants were helpful, polite and worked hard to make all the customers enjoy their day. We'll come back again!

We used Wahoo's Adventures instead of the "other" companies because it came highly recommended from other friends. Patrick was an awesome bus driver with his silly shenanigans on the way there and back from the pick up location. Amanda was excellent in her safety briefing along the way and made you feel right at home. Our guide, Thomas (Toe-Mas), was... More

We booked the white water rafting on the nolichucky river up to class 4, a party of 6 including one adventures grandma and a 12 yr old boy. We had a good GPS so finding it wasn't to hard. Getting signed in and geared up was quick. Before we knew it our crew was in a boat on the river... More

My family and I participated in the Watauga River Rafting. My teenage boy has physical disabilities and is in a wheelchair. I can't even begin to express my gratitude for the excellent service we received. From beginning to end this team of people ensured a beautiful excursion, that my boy could participate in and enjoy. Without being invasive of Tanner's... More

Me and my family are back in Boone and stopped by Wahoo's for our second season of rafting with our young girls. We had scheduled a trip last year, and paid in advance but unfortunately had to cancel last minute. On a whim I mentioned our trip from last year and our need to cancel. These folks were so awesome... More

Virginia is the best!!!! She is very informative and she is great with people. If camping I would bring your own wood. If you would like to upgrade from the tube make sure you get out there early because the guide would not let us back out after 3. They leave their restrooms open at night which is nice. We... More
