My father and I started this business ten years ago to show people how much fun and exciting rafting rivers can be. We wanted to share this experience with others on one of the most beautiful and scenic rivers that Western NC has to offer. Let us show you the love that we have for this river and the surrounding area.
Always worth the extra few minutes drive.
