Great first-time whitewater rafting experience for our 5 and 7 year old. This was the only whitewater option we found for 5-year olds and it was perfect for our family. We chose to have a guide (Skyler) who was very proficient in navigating the river and making our kids feel comfortable. There are a few good rapids that we thoroughly enjoyed.

I decided to take my partner along this time, we rented single duckies for the float. Really appreciate that the shuttle takes you to the start point and you end back at your car and the outfitter. I was excited to see all the hopniss, joe-pye, and helianthus in bloom along the river, and the highlight for us was getting dive-bombed by the blue heron as it screamed overhead.

We had a great time rafting with the smoky mountain river adventures on the Tuckasegee River with our 7 & 11 year olds. We did guided rafting. Everything was great. The river is wonderful, the guides did a great job and shared lots of info on the area and Tuckasegee. The outfitters have a relaxed feel but provided really great service that is professional, punctual and very friendly. We had a great time and highly recommend these outfitters.

Everyone was super friendly and helpful. We had a blast and my kids are ready to go again! Highlight was seeing a bald eagle perched in a tree!
