Not only Mom Approved, Grandad and Grandma approved. We took a 6, 7 and 10 year old down the river and had a fabulous time (July 23rd). The crew at DRC could not have been nicer, and the popsicle made the kids day! Just enough time on the river with one stop for swimming, enough white water for thrills but... More

Great Family Experience white water rafting! Nice 5 mile run took about 1 1/2 hours. Good for those who have never went rafting before.

This the best company on the Tuck in my opinion. We've rented in the past but rent three boats and did a self guided trip. Rates are reasonable and they offer the longest trips as they take out at the public ramp near Mr Bill's. They also offer a free Popsicle to everyone. Our go-to for raft rentals.

Shane and his team are the nicest and the trip down the Tuck was the best fun ever, we had the whole river to ourselves. It was a medium flow release day of the west fork and just enough flow to have fun with inflatable kayaks, the trip took 2 hours no problem. This is a great entry level river... More

This is the second time we've gone on this trip always with our grandchildren ...this time it was with our six-year-old grandson Johnny. We were afraid it was going to rain but it didn't and ended up being great day. Nate was our guide and we couldn't have asked for a better person. He inspired confidence. But we still really...

Loved rafting the Tuckasegee. Outfitter recommended best day for rafting and had us geared up and on the river quickly. Lots of options for guided and self guided trips. We rafted on a date the river was up and had a bit more whitewater than expected. Great first rafting experience for our young children and would recommend this outfitter for... More

This was my first rafting experience. I truly enjoyed every minute of it. Ben, our guide did a great job on the trip down the river. We even saw a bald eagle and the train go by. We got to stop on a little beach and swim and they provided snacks. I didn't want the trip to end. I would... More

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
