“Best rafting company on the nanthahala.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013 via mobile

We come every with a Jason Adams group and are never disappointed. The owners will do everything they can to accommodate you and are extremely friendly. The rafting experience itself is very fun and enjoyable. Will definitely be back once again next year!! Thank you for a great company.

“Fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2013

After reviewing all the options in the area, I decided to go with Adventurous Fast Rivers Rafting, and I have to say they were so nice and the process is very smooth, we had so much fun on the river. We chose not to use a guide and managed just fine, there was 5 of us in our boat including a 13 year old ($19.00 per person including everything, no hidden costs). They have bathrooms and changing areas and a small gift shop. I was so impressed with all of the employees and the whole experience. Thank you for a wonderful time and if we ever get back up the way will surely do this again.

“We made the right decision!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2013

I looked through tripadvisor trying to decide which company to choose for our whitewater rafting trip in NC. I would definitely recommend Fast Rivers! We couldn't have had a better time. We were trying to decide whether we wanted to use a guide or not, but I'm really glad we chose a guide. Our guide was great. He was very informative and showed us different scenery down the river that we may never have noticed. Also, he made it a lot more fun. The prices were very reasonable. Customer service was great. We didn't have any waiting time because there were only a few groups there. After our rafting trip, we had lunch at the NOC and let me just say that I'm so glad that we didn't go rafting with that company. It was like a circus over there! Choose Fast RIvers, and you'll be glad you did!

“Holds up to the high rating!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013

My wife and I recently booked a trip through Fast Rivers, which was actually my first time whitewater rafting. I was extremely impressed with the entire experience. The owners/staff are extremely helpful, and do all they can to make sure you have a fun & safe trip down the river. It is a very well organized operation - there is a quick turnaround time from check-in until you get on the bus, and subsequently getting your raft. All-in-all, we had a great time, and will be doing this again very soon. One thing I will point out, is that there are a ton of raft guides/shops all along the Nantahala....the NOC is probably the biggest and most frequented. But, do yourself a favor, and drive the few extra miles to give these guys your business.

“Fast Waters - Nantahala River Rapids”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013

What a great trip. Affordable. The guide was very personable and full of stories. Excellent 'driver'. Very casual environment. Beautiful section of river that they rent exclusively from the hydro power company. Variety of raft sizes. The rafts absorb water as ballast on the bottom so flipping is minimized. 2.5 hour trip. Well worth it! If it had been earlier in the day we would have done it again. Don't forget to tip your guide ! One caveat; They say it is 1 hour 15 minutes out of Asheville. Allow at very least 1.5 hours to get there. It is 80 miles away and highway speeds are often only 55mph, and there are some minor construction delays
