My wife, my 5yr old son and myself when rafting here for the second year in a row. Both times it's been a wonderful experience and very family-friendly. The guys are great and we've had so much fun each time. We are looking forward to coming back next year!

Be aware: on days when the water is released fromt the dams upstream as "high" water there is plenty of water to flood over the rocks and you'll have a nice float down the river. on days when the water is released as "low" water there are still a zillion exposed rocks, strong class 2 rapids and the trip down...

Wonderful family rafting ( we did the guided tour). We saw a bald and a golden eagle! Nice ride down the river with some small rapids! The "swim" portion of the trip was a family favorite! Highly recommend for families with younger children or older adults or anyone wanting a river ride without the bigger rapids! Shane and his staff... More

My husband and I booked a tubing trip on Tuesday the 26th of July. This day was a water release day, so the level of the river was higher. We had an excellent time! The river and the surrounding scenery were amazing. The staff were so courteous, and the town of Dillsboro was charming. Lots to do in that general... More

We had a wonderful time on the river! We went on a guided tour and Shane, the owner, was our guide; it was my friend's first time whitewater rafting and she had been a bit nervous but was charmed by the experience. The river was just fast enough to have some interesting rapids and we stopped for a bit on... More

We were a group of four adults and four kids (ages 4-7). This was a great experience for all of the us, especially the kids. When you arrive, there is a very nice main building that has checkin, drinks, snacks, souvenirs (shirts, stickers, hats, water shoes, etc). They have bathrooms to change in. There is a nice swim spot right... More

This was our first time to try white water rafting. My wife and one of my daughters were hesitant but we finally talked them into it. Afterwards they were pleasantly surprised at how much fun they had. The owner was very nice.

I booked a guided trip for my 5 yr old daughter and we had a great time. The other family did not show so we had the raft to ourselves. Our guide Reiner was excellent and made the trip very special for us. There was even a river rescue where our guide helped assist a lady who fell out of... More
