With kids 7,8,9 overweight mom but still active, 6 ft dad --we want to do rafting either in Tennesse or North Carolina --any recommendations?

I have heard of Wildwater and NOC(good morning america). I am most interested in safety and then having a great experience. Would like to spend more time on the water than getting there and back.

Any comments or help

Both companies are fine, but the NOC is the best of the best. See their website at www. noc.com

NOC is one of the oldest companies and provides first class service. Wildwater is also a first rate company. I have rafted with both and will use them any day. NOC was an outpost located on 441 just before you enter the park in Gatlinburg. With the ages of the kids they will have to raft the pigeon river which is just outside of Gatlinburg near the state line.

Both companies are great. They have both been in business about the same length of time (NOC 1972, WW 1971). Both are reputable for thier commitment to safety. You would be making a good choice either way. HTH!
