This was a great experience and I would suggest it to everyone! Our guide, Keith was extremely knowledgeable and helpful. Definitely worth the price. It was great even in the 50 degree weather! They provided us with Splash Gear which was really nice.

I have been white water rafting with this company and found that it was one of the best in East Tennessee Gatlinburg area. They have a rafting trip for young and old with 2 routes for one or the other. The prices are very reasonable and the staff go beyond what they have to to make you comfortable with the... More

My wife was a little bit nervous about going at first but our guide "Big Steve" put her at ease with his humor and knowledge.At the end I think she enjoyed it more than me.
