Selected River and Raft adventures because of the convenience of the shuttle service from Boone NC to Marshall NC and the great reviews I saw on trip advisor. I wasn't disappointed. We took the full day trip that included lunch. We had a great time with our guide Josh. We did a lot of neat things like jumping off a... More

We went out today as a family group (4 adults & children ranging in age from 7- 13) Beautiful day on the river with ideal conditions for a tubing trip: weather, water temp. & river flow rate. Our river guide was punctual, easy going, & informative and did everything in his power to ensure we had a great time on... More

My girlfriend and I wanted to take our 16 year old son on an adventure before going back to school so we signed up to go caving with River & Earth. Grant handled the reservations and was clear with what we needed to bring for a great experience. We met our guide Dave at the outpost and he double-checked with... More

My 17 year old daughters and I went white water rafting with this company. We had a great time! The guides made the trip, they were a group of young, adventurous guys who really loved what they were doing. They looked for fun opportunities along the river. They got us all climbing up and jumping off a rock, jumping overboard... More

Dave was an amazing guide in Worley's cave! He made sure that safety was paramount and also made sure that our trip was as extreme as we wanted it to be at the same time. Dave had a wealth of information about the cave and surrounding areas that was interesting and unique. My 16 year old son said he had... More

We did the Watauga River trip with our three sons and three nieces (ages 7-14). It was amazing! The river was nice and cool and Carson was a great guide (the kids loved his goofy humor and he was very engaging). The river itself had a couple of nice little rapids, and the cliff jump had my wife closing her... More

Family of four (two teens aged 14 and 16) had an awesome experience with great guides Josh and Mack. We had never properly gone caving or rafting, but this was a great introduction. The caving part of the day was the best as you really get muddy and have to crawl, roll and slide as well as walk through it.... More

This was our first time whitewater rafting. Section V of the Watauga River was perfect for us. Easy ride, great scenery and our guide John did a great job with his instructions and keeping it fun and safe. We look forward to doing it again.

Eighteen of us floated the New River to celebrate our daughters birthday. The REA team was friendly and well trained. They helped us make one of our most memorable parties ever.

The tubing was lots of fun and we'll do it again, for sure! As some have already mentioned, the logistics could be better. Driving to one place to pay and then driving to another location to tube could be better organized. Overall, lots of fun!
