My DH and I plus about 6 other family members are planning a trip to Gatlinburg and the GSM NP in June 2012. Group includes 3 kids (2 10yr old boys & 8yr old girl). We want to do a whitewater raft trip on the Pigeon River (upper). Can I get some feed back on specific outfitters that people have used to do this? We've done research but would like people's specific recommendations.
Also has anyone rafted with a big group, we would be 8 people plus the guide? Does anyone know outfitters that have boats to accomodate a group this size? Most of the websites don't detail how big the boats are but most video's we've watched show 6 people and one guide. Thanks for your help.
