Western North Carolina is a dream vacation destination and we take advantage of everything WNC has to offer: whitewater rafting on three great rivers, white water kayak instruction, fly fishing, scenic lake tours and a store overlooking the Nantahala River. And when winter arrives, we take our expertise to Costa Rica and Ecuador for more great outdoor adventures.

My son and I came for a half day fly fishing tour. All the staff is very friendly and Ken was a great guide. We spent about 4 hours on the tour and learned a lot from him. Even though fly fishing has a lot of tricks, Ken was knowledgeable and patient enough to teach us the basics to catch... More

I've taken several whitewater kayaking classes with them and each has been excellent. The class has always paced to my level and the guide thoughtful, professional and exceptionally skilled. I will continue to come back every year.

Shàngshù suǒyǒu qítā ... Above all others. Great equipment, friendly and informative staff, and a cute boutique. We had a wonderful time kayaking the Nantahala. 😊 I would definitely recommend this outfitter to anyone.

They greet everyone by name and treat you like family. we use them every year on both the Nantahala River and the Ocoee. We do both the guided duckies and the guided rafts. Guides are very inexpensive and worth every penny. Great for all experience... More

This trip was an absolute blast. We booked it only a week or so before our vacation after other plans fell through. Our family of five (kids aged 14 to 19) were whitewater novices, and we chose the guided trip on the Nantahala River. It lasted about 2.5 hours and was mostly easy class 2 rapids with one wilder class... More

This experience was great from start to finish. Everything about it was top notch! It is an inexpensive way to experience the river and the area with family and friends. We rafted on the Nantahala River. I would recommend it for adults and children. The trip took us about 2 hours. Bring a camera if you can. I would definitely... More
