The staff here is absolutely the friendliest and most helpful ever. The Nantahala is my very favorite river to raft. I recommend an individual ducky.

Based on adventure and the river itself I ranked this trip in the top two rafting trips I've taken. However, Shane our guide, made it even better. Thank you Shane, we had an incredible time and lots of memories. You and the Nantahala were awesome!
