Very professional staff. Even on an extremely busy day they managed to keep all of us moving along. A very enjoyable trip down the river for all ages for about half of what other companies are charging. Don't be afraid to take an unguided trip if you have any paddling experience.

Our Boy Scout Troop frequently goes on unguided trips with Carolina Outfitters. We have used them for 12 years or more. CO has provided great service for us every time.

Choose an adjective! Place was awesome, guide was great, place was packed and still managed a nice trip down! Water felt amazing even at 50 degrees and we can't wait to next Labor Day. I would also suggest taking a guided tour of you don't know why you're doing. We laughed many times at all the river idiots who looked... More

Excellent friendly helpful staff both at base facility, and on the river. We traveled three hours to get there (including a missed turn that had us backtracking). Even though we missed the scheduled time the process was very smooth. We were outfitted and taken to the starting point as customers gathered. They are located near to first entry point to... More

Our guide was friendly, knowledgeable and fun. She was helpful in making our trip enjoyable for our four teenagers and discussing local attractions for our next area attractions to visit.

This is a great beginner rafter course. The class II rapids are mild and allow for some time to take in the views. The class III rapids were fun without me feeling like we were going to have anyone go overboard. There were many groups that went down the river without a guide. I personally would not have wanted to... More

We chose Carolina outfitters because of the reviews and let me tell you the reviews were right- best rafting company! We had the best guide, Michael G (aka spongebob)! Not only did he makes us feel... More

My friends and I had such a great time. We did duckies on the Nantahala river. The water was very cold but so much fun.
