My group and I did the tubing adventure and it could have have been more fun. we had the best time. tubes are, by nature, hard to maneuver but that actually only makes the attempts more enjoyable and hilarious. would definitely return here and recommend.

We took a 7 mile kayak trip. It was very relaxing. The water flows nicely to allow the option of paddling or simply steering. There was a combination of shade and sunny areas, so we never felt uncomfortable. No real places to stop along the...More

Book this kayak trip rather than the ones closer to Asheville. You don't have to deal with all the drunk tubers. Route is ALOT less crowded. You can really enjoy nature instead of listening to rowdy people on the river. They even have phones on...More
