Four of us canoed the Watauga river with Wahoo's Adventures. Michael was our Guide and was particular accommodating and helpful. There was no rush to get us off the water and we extended our trip down the river a little with his help. Well organised and professional. We absolutely loved this and was great fun, despite capsizing!

We originally planned our Rafting/Camping trip on the Nolichucky RIver but the water was too low to raft and we still wanted to camp and raft, so with the recommendation of Dave, we chose the Watauga River Trip instead. Although I preferred a more experienced rafting trip a couple of others that came with me never been rafting so we... More

We had booked online and when we arrived they had no record of booking. They ended up sorting it out but an hour late hitting water no apologies or anything. We were confused why they had started having a few beers instead of trying to get us on the water as quickly as possible. The ride was great felt sorry... More

Had a blast, the guides did a great job. The weather was perfect, and the cold water was exhilarating

I live in the Boone area and during the summer whenever I have friends or family come visit and want to spend time outside without hiking I always take them river tubing and Wahoo's is always who we go through. They have a great facility right on the New River and renting from them is easy. You can choose from... More

We stayed in the Cascade Tree House September 8th-10th, 2016. It was an excellent 3 night get away adventure. It was fun staying in the Tree House being right there on the river relaxing and building our camp fire nightly. Mountain Man Bert was very friendly, helpful and informative with all of his stories. The lady that worked at the... More

First let me say that if you're depending on your GPS to find the Todd facility....DON'T. I would suggest going to one of the on line map sites and print out step by step instructions. Once there however, if you've come to relax, you'll find the trip worth the effort. While the facility is not resort quality, the restroom and... More

Our 3-hour tubing trip was just about perfect, a lot of fun but also very relaxing. The Wahoo staff was friendly, helpful and professional. Will definitely be back!

My son and I went tubing together Sept 11th. We had a great time. We arrived a couple minutes late from taking a wrong turn on the beautiful drive through the NC mountains to Wahoo's. I would recommend having the directions printed in case you lose cell service. There was ample parking. The changing room was clean and adequate. We... More
