This trip was amazing! It was myself and my 19 year old niece. Hurricane Sandy bought a lot a rain earlier in the week so I was nervous that the rapids would be to rough. I called the company and they told me everything would be good. My trip was for 12pm. I drove up from Marietta, GA and it took 1.5 hrs. I followed the directions that were on the website with no issues. I checked the weather a few days before the trip and saw it was only going to be 73 degrees. I'm a cold natured person, so I bought a wetsuit on Amazon and it arrived in time for the trip. I'm so glad I bought it bc the water was a little chilly. I was the only person with one and everyone else was just fine. The company provides life vests and helmets. They will keep your car keys for you but you need to lock everything else in your car. My guide Lucas was the best!!! He's knowledgeable AND fun!! We had 4 people in our raft, which was perfect. The couple with us were great and I'm glad we got paired together. The rapids weren't terrible but you will get wet!! And I do mean wet! There is a spot were we are allowed to jump out of the raft and float in the water. Of course I jumped! Please bring changing clothes, water shoes that fit (no flip flops). Someone did come out of the water with only one water shoe. You are allowed to bring your phone or camera. It will get wet! I have a waterproof camera that I forgot at home, so I took my phone with me. Thankfully, I have several waterproof plastic cases that I keep in my car so I was good. I would absolutely recommend this company. Ask for Lucas as your guide!!!!

Just completed the Nantahala rafting experience today with friends. Moon was our guide and he was great. The experience was wonderful and we all had a great time. Highly recommended. Water was cold but you get use to it. Don’t miss your chance to raft the Nantahala!
