Reviewed October 3, 2012

I can't express the satisfaction enough from our trip today. My family and I took the 2 1/2 hour trip with Walker, our guide. He made our 1st time rafting kids laugh, squeal and soaked.... us adults as well. Don't know who enjoyed it more HA!

I believe we got the creme brulee of the river. Everyone at the outpost was just wonderful. We felt more like friends than customers from the very beginning.

Thank you for creating a family memory that will become a tradition!!!! Hope to see you in the spring!!! Mundy Wenger and family, Elizabethtown, KY

Sure, all outfitters on the Nantahala offer rafts and duckies... they all provide paddles and spalsh jackets, but none do it better and with that local ownership flavor as Mom does it at Paddle Inn. I took my family of 5 + 2 friends camping for a nice Labor Day weekend trip. the main event was a trip down the river. Mom has the best prices on the river and her team is very personable and helpful. We requested the assistance of a guide at the last minute for one of our friends (her parents requiement) and mom was very flexible and assigned her best. We had a blast, will def be back. One additional nice touch is they have their personal photographer at the falls to capture your last decent... the great thing about this is how you are invited to the gift shop to personally review the great close-ups of you screaming just before you plunge beneath that icey cold water... :)

Thanks for the great trip

Our family has rafted the Nantahala with another company ...but discovered "Paddle Inn" a few years ago and wouldn't recommend anyone else. Their prices are reasonable, the guides are great, and you are out on the water quickly. Our guide, Devin, provided a fun trip tailored to our wishes ....thanks! Their photo package price is great as well....for little over the price of a couple of shots with other companies,we purchased a CD with 30+ shots which can be printed as you wish. The "slideshow" it provides is a great souvenier of the trip. Great company.

We did the 2.5 hour full river run. We were celebrating my sister's 50th and this activity did not disappoint. "Mom", the owner for years still works every day with customers at 74 years old. on the day we went 8/16/12, she actually took a trip down the river herself! This is a great family atmosphere and just enough excitement....

I will recommend Paddle Inn to everyone!! We had so much fun. This trip is fun for all the family! We took our 8 year old nephew & were concerned he wouldn't be able to go but it was safe for us all. This was our 2nd rafting trip and we did not have a guide. It was a blast & we will go back. Organized and friendly staff, a great value & affordable for all budgets and beautiful area!! The picture cd was great and worth it! We can not wait to go back:) Alicia Wills, Myakka City, FL
