Scooty P was an amazing guide through our rafting trip! His enthusiasm for tackling the most intense part of every rapid hyped my entire group up. He even gave us some history about the river that was super interesting. If y'all go, definitely request Scooty p, you won't be disappointed you did I promise you!

My daughter and I had a awesome time whitewater rafting a week ago!! Our raft guide, Woody, did a great time with guiding us down the rive and sharing history about the area! The rapids are just right especially if you are a beginner. I guarantee you will fun. This is my second time using Rip Roaring Adventures and I plan on using them every time I go whitewater rafting in the Smokies. You will not be disappointed using this company.
