Photographer had a car fire so we were unable to purchase pictures of the trip, would have been rated 5 had those been available. Will was the guide, he was full of witty remarks and very knowledgeable of the area and the river itself. He very quickly and efficiently performed the freeing of a stuck raft.

My husband & I had a wonderful trip on the Nolichucky today. This was our first whitewater experience, and everyone at USA Raft made us feel welcome. Joe, our guide, was the perfect mix of relaxed yet confident, fun but safety conscious. After the first rapid we knew we were in good hands. All the guides were great, helping to... More

This is the 4th year we have used USA Rafting. The Nolichucky is by far the best in the area. The guides and staff do a great job of making the trip fun but at the same time safety is a #1 concern. We took our 11 year old granddaughter this year and she had a great time.
