Choose from 3 of the Best Rivers in the Southeast
Our most popular offering. Enjoyed by canoeists, kayakers, fly fishermen and rafters alike, the Nantahala River is one of the most popular rivers in the U.S.! You will enjoy eight miles of Class II-III whitewater. With its crystal clear, Class II-III water, the Nantahala is the perfect river to enjoy with family and friends. We offer trips year-round, seven days a week.
Located just over the North Carolina/Tennessee border is the world-famous Ocoee River. The Ocoee offers two exciting sections of Class III-IV whitewater, making it one of the most popular river runs in the southeast. It is also accessible from almost any point in the southeast for a day trip! The Ocoee is a dam-controlled river with scheduled release dates from March – October.
Extremely continuous and physically demanding, the Cheoah is the perfect choice for those looking to take the whitewater experience to that next level.
