I have used the folks at Edge of the World for many white water rafting trips. They are comparable to Nantahala Outdoor Center in professionalism and experience. Those were the only two outfitters I would use when my children were small because I have confidence in their abilities and their guides do not get too far out of control.

Thank you so much Edge of the World for giving us the best rafting trip ever. Everything was perfect from the extremely outrageous bus ride to and from to the guided tours. You have something so original and different. Our group kept talking about it the rest of the weekend and still today. Jason kept us laughing the entire time. All the energy put into our trip was just above and beyond. We are so excited to plan the rock climbing trip next. Thanks guys and Cappa for the best rafting trip!

We had a wonderful raft trip down the Watauga River. The guides made the whole trip a lot of fun with hillarious jokes and songs, but were serious when it came to river safety. You won't be disappointed!

We took our 9 and 11 year old boys on their first rafting adventure and had a fantastic time. The guides are top notch with both their skills and comedic personalities. Jeff and Dooney had us laughing the entire 45 min. bus ride there and back. We were all blown away by their non stop, high energy. It was refreshing to spend the day with people who truly enjoy what they do. I should also add that the lunch was delicious. We will, without question, join them for a day of adventure the next time we are in the area.
