Took an unguided trip down Nantahala river. This is our 4th time with Carolina Outfitters. Matt, a guide on another boat, assisted us. Great time for all ages (10 to 62). Highly recommend these guys!

My husband,myself, and 17 year old daughter had a blast whitewater rafting! This was our first time ever. Our tour guide, Matt Stevens, was great! I was a bit nervous but Matt was such a great guide. Ask for him if you've never rafted.
