We went rafting here for the first time with the family. 2 adults and 11 year old boy and 13 year old girl with the guide named Billy. The guide was a girl, don't let the name fool you. Anyway, the place seemed pretty organized. They had parking guys direct you to where to park. The orientation was decent enough... More

White water rafting is fun, but rafting on duckies is even more fun and interactive. Fish and Patrick were great guides. We especially appreciate the walk thru instructions for the last rapid. We did it and it was so much fun!

The best experience ever. First time rafting with my husband and two teenagers. Couldn't have picked a better outfitter. Dale was our river guide and he was awesome!!! The river is absolutely gorgeous and perfect for first timers. The restaurant has great food and cold beer afterwards. Will definitely use them again!!

Even though it was a rainy weekend, we got lucky and the rain spared us for the 2 hour trip. During the orientation my friend asked if he would guide us since he seemed fun. Yes he was entertaining and we had a great time. This was my first time rafting and he worked hard to make it a little... More

I've done a number of white water rafting over they years, and while the Pigeon River is not the most intense I've experienced it was a great time none-the-less. The entire family had fun and NOC runs a very good operation. All the guides were very personable and clearly wanted to make it as much fun as possible for everyone.... More

On a last minute decision went white water rafting for the afternoon. Great guides and trip. They made an effort to keep everyone entertained and informed of the river. We did the half day French Broad. This was enough for us first-timers! The guide told us about the history of the river and the area where we passed along the... More

I am from Panama and had the privilege of taking my son to summer camp in North Carolina for the first time. I had gone the same camp (Camp Highlander) 27 years ago. During my time as a camper and counselor I went down the Nantahala dozens of times. Returning after all these years with my wife was a great... More

We did the white water rafting trip and zip lining. Our experrience was great starting with the check in process. The staff was verry helpful and friendly. On the white water rafting we chose to have the guide in the boat since it was our first time. It was great!! Can hardly wait to go back and try it again....maybe... More
