This is a great run for first time rafters. There are enough level 1 and 2 rapids to keep it exciting but never worrisome. You can choose inflatable tubes, rafts or kayaks. We had a large group and decided on two rafts and a kayak. The teens had no trouble in the kayak. The route gives you a scenic view... More

We were vacationing and I wanted to take my six year old on his first white water paddle. I called them and they helped me decide on the right trip for us. The place is very convenient to get to and the people were friendly and helpful. We had a great time. My son especially enjoyed playing in the water... More

I've been on several rafting trips but I got to say this was one of my favorites. The Tuck offers a peaceful ride with spectacular views. We had a few children in our group and they did great on this trip. There were enough rapids to keep the ride fun and interesting without being too scary. I highly recommend using... More

We took our 12 year old grandson rafting and we loved it. We all had so much fun, and enjoyed our trip so much. The guides was so helpful and it was just a blast. Will most defiantly go back again when we are up that way.

OMG - we had so much fun. Family of four with two teenage boys. We got two ducks (two man raft/kayak) and had a great time. Water was just fast enough to be fun but not too fast to worry about any real danger. I'd say Class II almost the whole way. Total time in the water was two hours.... More

This was my first time white water rafting so I was a little apprehensive about it, not knowing anything about this river. I chose to have a guide in the raft with me and my two teenage kids. My husband and older son chose the solo ducks. Sam was an EXCELLENT guide! He was lots of fun, very knowledgeable and... More

We virtually had the river to ourselves and really enjoyed our Saturday trip. We chose this company to take our 4 year old niece out in a raft for the first time. She wasn't entirely convinced that the waves were fun, but we felt safe on this river. I called a few days ahead and everything went as planned when... More

My family has used this outfitter on many occasions due to their friendliness, quality of product and family-friendly feel of this river. On our most recent trip, my 8-year-old and I became "braver" and opted for a 2-person kayak with no guide. I use the term "braver" loosely, as the rapids on this 5-mile stretch of river are very family... More

The website says that they are open "7 days a week, 10am-6pm, May-Sep." It also states that "walk-ins are welcome." Since it was a Monday morning we didn't think we would need to call ahead since it wasn't anywhere near peak business hours. We showed up Mon May 12, 2014 at 10:30am and found a chain across the parking lot... More

I have been in and out of the rafting industry for going on 20 years and have seen it all inside and out of the US. I was looking for a safe professional company to take my two boys 5 and 6 years old down for their first river trip. I have often overlooked the Tuckaseegee in my personal travels... More
