We are your complete outdoor destination for whitewater rafting, white water kayak instruction, guided fly fishing, and an Outfitters Store specializing in whitewater kayaking and fly fishing equipment.

Internationally, we offer adventure vacations in Costa Rica and Ecuador that include white water kayaking trips, whitewater rafting, bird watching and amazonia fly fishing.

When 13-year old @sam_sharp_14 and his father joined us in Ecuador in 2017, we saw the beginnings of an amazing paddler. Little did we know that 4 years later, the little punk would be the U.S. Men’s Slalom Kayak National Champion.

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.
