Available Adventures

Whitewater Rafting

We raft three of the best rivers in the southeast: the Nantahala, Ocoee and Cheoah Rivers. Based just outside of Bryson City, near the Smoky Mountain National Park.  we offer family rafting for kids seven years old and up, as well as advanced rivers up to Class IV+ for the more adventurous.

Kayak Instruction

Our renowned paddling program offers custom kayak instruction from beginner fundamentals to advanced technique.  Our focus is on you learning to roll your kayak, improving stroke work, and advanced moves for stepping up your game.  We are permitted for instruction on the Nantahala, Ocoee and Cheoah Rivers, and use all the creeks and rivers in western North Carolina as our classroom. 

Fly Fishing

For guided float trips, wade trips or introductory fly fishing instruction, our location offers some of the most diverse fishing opportunities .  We guide a variety of rivers and streams with brook, brown and rainbow trout and warm water streams with small-mouth bass. Endless River Adventures is permitted through the U.S. Forest Service for guided float trips on the tailwater section of the Nantahala River.
