The trip down the river was so much fun. Although the water was extremely cold, we had so much fun with the water gun... More

This was our first time, and while the company cannot control the level of a natural river, I feel like there should be a warning on the website you book through during these times. We are in shape, so getting out of the tub MANY times to get moving again wasn't an issue, but there were multiple larger and older... More

My niece moved to Ft. Bragg with her husband, and a bunch of us decided to make a vacation of helping her move. It was her idea to drive up to go white water rafting. Although my sister and I were scared we all agreed to go. I'm so glad we did! We had the best time ever. It's hard... More

After much research I chose HME for our white water rafting trip and I can say I am so glad I did. We had the best time. The bus ride to the drop of point was a lot of fun with Brandon. He kept it entertaining as well as informative. The lunch was ready upon our arrival and then we... More

We chose HME because of the great reviews on TripAdvisor. We had no problem making last minute reservations online. Upon arriving, we only waited a few minutes before we loaded up on the bus and drove a few minutes up the mountain to our drop off location. Our driver was very nice. When we got out, 2 groups that were... More

Took my son (18) here for a whitewater trip down the Nolichucky. Due to low water High Mountain recommended we use funyaks. It was a blast! Nolichucky still have Class IV rapids even with the lack of rain this summer. No dam here so the water was a nice temperature. Guides were fun and really kept an eye on safety.... More

Tubing on the New River with our granddaughter was AWESOME! She loved it and so did we. We brought music, but decided to enjoy all of nature. Great time with family and enjoying God's creation.

This was our favorite tubing expedition ever! They have the most comfortable tubes with head rests and amazingly large cooler tubes! We won't choose anyone else!

We had a large family group of 12, ranging in age from 10 - 70. The guides were fantastic and made sure we all had a great experience. They are fun, knowledgable and excellent at what they do. Everyone came away having had a really good day.
