Great to hear! The whitewater releases are really fun, they guarantee extra water on the river to make the rapids more exciting. Dam release dates for 2017 are posted online.

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
Why are there no helmets? I have been white water rafting several times in North Carolina and there were always helmets required. I will be with my 12-year old son. Also the guides were in the rafts with us, but it seems like they are not in the raft. Also how long is the trip? We will be traveling from Philadelphia on vacation there so I need to budget our time. Thanks!
