We had reservations for 4 for the Sunday of Labor Day weekend. My husband had emergency surgery two weeks prior to this and he knew he would not be able to participate with us, so I emailed to cancel one of the reservations. I got no reply. I called and was told "no problem. We look forward to seeing you".... More

River and Earth Adventures is defiantly my top choice for future raft trips in the area. The guides were super cool and very knowledgeable, answering questions, taking pictures and simply having fun. The transportation to and from the river were every bit as entertaining and informative as the float itself. And my review wouldn't be complete if I failed to... More

We were a group of 5 people. 3 Guys and 2 ladies. We were in for a whitewater rafting trip and this was our first experience. Initially, 3 of us were reluctant to do a rafting as they were worried about the safety. But somehow we persuaded them to do this. Our rafting was planned to be done on the... More

We really enjoyed our afternoon with friends floating of the New River outside of Boone. The river was crystal clear and not moving too swiftly. There were a few Rapids that made the ride interesti. Scenery was beautiful. We brought a cooler with snack and drinks and tethered it to one of the tubes. It was a relaxing and fun... More

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
