We have been taking kids as young as 4 down the Tuckaseigee River for over 25 years!

We are defiantly white water, just not hard core white water. Just enough to take your kids safely for a fun ride down the river.

There are always guides on the water leading & flowing the trip helping you out if you need it & most importantly, carrying the snacks!

We returned here this year with the kids for a low key trip. Since we had been out on this river before on guided trips we rented individual boats for the five of us. Since we had two smaller children with us we were in three boats. We went on a Monday morning and they accommodated us without a reservation.... More

The 1-2 level white water rafting was perfect for our 7-year old. The flotation jacket you wear is certified for level 5 rafting, so it provides optimum safety. We had two guides with us. Jerry, who is very friendly and informative, followed as the "end" guide in his own kayak while Kyle rode in the raft with another family. Jerry... More

Pretty well organized. We felt safe. Class 1 and 2 rapids. If you are completely unfamiliar with rafting I would ask about the different paddle strokes. They go over the safety aspect well, but skipped over the strokes and some rafters seemed to go where the water took them. The have a pro photographer taking photos for $30 over one... More

Went rafting with these guys and everyone had a fantastic time. The little extras that they did for us made the difference for the kids, like coats when they got cold on the river and popsicles when we got back from the trip. The kids loved it, they are ready to go at it again! Thanks so much!

Took my 5 yr old rafting for the 1st time on the Tuckasegee River with them. She had a GREAT time! Guides friendly and helpful. They brought snacks for everyone, even my daughter that has Celiac's. Made it really enjoyable for us, taking care of all of us. Helped my husband back in the boat when he fell out too.... More

The Tuckaseegee River is beautiful, clean and cold!! And no better way to see it than on a rafting trip. Our guides were awesome, they helped guide us through the rapids and got us unstuck off the rocks! They were super friendly and made sure we had a wonderful time. It was a great adventure that the whole family enjoyed.

The Tuckasegee River is a family fun river to raft. Guides are in their own boats but will help you on the rare occasion you get stuck. We had fun paddling down the river and took two breaks. As a group, we stopped for swimming and snack break and then we stopped for swimming and jumping off a rock several... More
