We have been taking kids as young as 4 down the Tuckaseigee River for over 25 years! We are defiantly white water, just not hard core white water. Just enough to take your kids safely for a fun ride down the river. There are always guides on the water leading & flowing the trip helping you out if you need it & most importantly, carrying the snacks!

Went rafting with these guys and everyone had a fantastic time. The little extras that they did for us made the difference for the kids, like coats when they got cold on the river and popsicles when we got back from the trip. The kids...More

The Tuckaseegee River is beautiful, clean and cold!! And no better way to see it than on a rafting trip. Our guides were awesome, they helped guide us through the rapids and got us unstuck off the rocks! They were super friendly and made sure...More

The Tuckasegee River is a family fun river to raft. Guides are in their own boats but will help you on the rare occasion you get stuck. We had fun paddling down the river and took two breaks. As a group, we stopped for swimming...More
