We will go back every chance we get. We have been rafting and tubing, multiple times and each time it just keeps getting better. The owner, Shane and his family knows how to run a family business and know this river and these mountains like they have been here forever! The guides were helpful, funny and personable. The tubes, life... More

We love the Dillsboro River Company! Great for a day trip or overnight stay in the mountains. It is also within an easy drive of Asheville. The owners are very friendly and safety is a priority. Staff is wonderful and knowledgeable. You can do a guided or unguided trip and it is probably best to call ahead if you want... More

Dillsboro river company is defiantly one of the best tubing company's in NC. Went there last year, first time tubing. Trip lasted about 45 minutes, and was overall very enjoyable. The tubes were comfortable. Staff was very friendly, and a shuttle drops you off and picks you up. Some small rapids, but nothing big. Highly recommend and will go again!

My wife, my 5yr old son and myself when rafting here for the second year in a row. Both times it's been a wonderful experience and very family-friendly. The guys are great and we've had so much fun each time. We are looking forward to coming back next year!

Be aware: on days when the water is released fromt the dams upstream as "high" water there is plenty of water to flood over the rocks and you'll have a nice float down the river. on days when the water is released as "low" water there are still a zillion exposed rocks, strong class 2 rapids and the trip down...

Wonderful family rafting ( we did the guided tour). We saw a bald and a golden eagle! Nice ride down the river with some small rapids! The "swim" portion of the trip was a family favorite! Highly recommend for families with younger children or older adults or anyone wanting a river ride without the bigger rapids! Shane and his staff... More

My husband and I booked a tubing trip on Tuesday the 26th of July. This day was a water release day, so the level of the river was higher. We had an excellent time! The river and the surrounding scenery were amazing. The staff were so courteous, and the town of Dillsboro was charming. Lots to do in that general... More

We had a wonderful time on the river! We went on a guided tour and Shane, the owner, was our guide; it was my friend's first time whitewater rafting and she had been a bit nervous but was charmed by the experience. The river was just fast enough to have some interesting rapids and we stopped for a bit on... More
