Appalachian Outdoors Whitewater Rafting is such a professional company. To say they have their stuff together is an understatement. We arrived at our designated time withour group of 7 whitewater virgins (ages 13 - 44) and were almost immediately placed with our guide, Dustin. Dustin was extremely thorough in explaining the river, the rapids and our duties. Because of Dustin,... More

We kicked off a bachelorette weekend with rafting and had a great time! Despite the frigid water temperature it was a lot of fun and Sam was a great guide. Would recommend a wetsuit if you go in the early spring, but being dam fed the water is always pretty chilly. Also got some great photos to top off the... More

Dispite waking up in the morning and feeling 'blah' we had already booked the trip. Neither of us wanted to go that morning, when we got there we looked at the facilities oututer appearance and were rather disappointed. That being said the staff was great, the trip was great we watched other rafting companies in the area on the river... More

We were a group of seven - we had a blast thanks to our guide - Schveeb. If you ever want the best fun and adventure ask for the Ex-Marine - Schveeb. Thank you for the best vacation ever!

First of all, if you go, specifically ask for Tucker! He was absolutely AMAZING! Likes to joke around & make your experience a very best one! Even tho his jokes arent that funny ;) but thats beside the point. We didnt have to wait long at all.. We had the best time & the sights were breath taking. I do... More

I was 4 months pregnant and they let me ride. When we booked the trip I was not pregnant so we couldn't get our money back. I am glad they didn't. The ride on the upper rapids was awesome! Our guide braced me down when he knew it would be a rough one. And the best part I didn't have... More

We went last Tuesday, our guide was Birdman! And he was probably the best guide EVAR! went with our group perfectly! (BUB! GUY! ) skillfully kept us from flipping the raft! Geat guy overall! Great view of the Mountains, and an interesting river rush! Keep it up Birdman!

This was the first time me and my wife went whitewater rafting. And it was real fun! We did the upper and lower levels on the same day. I must say the guides knew exactly what they were doing and every inch of the river. Lovely,quiet location as well.

My guide was Tucker. He was a really fun guide to have! My friend & I would mess with him the whole time because I sat in front of him & my friend sat next to me. We decided that tucker sounded like Nan tucket so we called him that. He would say not so funny jokes & would tell... More
