ERA was the best. They were very relaxed, prepared, professional and personable. They made our experience better. We will definitely use them again.

“Great Family Fun”
Reviewed September 27, 2013

This summer, we spent a week at Nantahala Lake in North Carolina. One day, we went into ERA to get information on fly fishing. They were so great that we decided to use them for our white water adventure. All of the employees were great -- fun and very knowledgeable. Our group (total of 9 people) ranged in age from 6 to 50. The younger ones were able to participate in a large raft and the older ones could solo in the duckies. There was something to suit each of us. We all had a great time!

“First time rafting!”
Reviewed September 10, 2013

My husband and I went down early on a Friday to get in an afternoon of rafting on the Nantahala. It ended up just being the two of us in a small raft with our guide, Rick. Rick was awesome. He obviously knows his job and loves what he does. He gave us lots of history on the river and area. I joked about him being our gondolier and he should sing to us...he started singing, and it was GREAT! Will absolutely be going back. Gorgeous scenery and great people.

“Nantahala River”
Reviewed September 9, 2013

We wanted to do a rafting trip that my 8 year old nephew could do with us. The first part of the Nantahala was just the thing. This part of the river was II and one III at the end. For first time river rafters this was just the thing for us to see if we liked it. Well guess what we are going back next year to hit the bigger ones. We had a group of 9 and had to be split in two different rafts. The guide in our boat (Red) was Amazing and so much fun. My sisters boat guide was very nice (Alex). The Only complaint we had was having to split up allowed two other people we did not know to go. They made the trip in Alex's boat a bit less fun. It was a women and her 8 year old boy. This women would not stop talking and got mad if she got wet. Yes, Really!!! This took some of the fun out of it for the other raft. We do not blame ERA or Alex for this but I will be very demanding about who is allowed to go with our group next time.

“splashingly good time!”
Reviewed September 1, 2013

I only use Endless River Adventures for my trips down the Nantahala! They are well managed, incredibly helpful, less crowd hassle, good/newer equipment, well-located, etc. They do let us rent a double ducky on our own, without a guide, which we enjoy being on our own on the river. There are other outfitters that will only let you go with a guide on the Nantahala. We have a little experience and like negotiating the river as we choose. Support the little guys on the river, then afterwords go to NOC's Big Wesser BBQ + Brew for a craft beer on the banks of the river and ruminate about your accomplishments with ERA!
