I got to have a great relaxing time hanging out with the Wahoo's guys. My family had a great time tubing on the river, we had a really good time and the staff made the extra effort to make sure we had a great trip.

Thanks for the great review! We're so glad you had a great time on the Nolichucky! Next time you go, ask Patrick to wear his rubber bow tie while he serves lunch. :D

I was nervous about being too cold and the rapids being a little too extreme for me but it was great. We rented wetsuits and we were surprisingly comfortable. (I would recommend wearing old tennis shoes, closed toe sandals or water shoes, too.) The rapids...More

Thank you for your kind words! The guides on the Nolichucky have nearly 250 years of experience between them, so yes they do know what to expect to say the least!!! Patrick has spent more than 3,000 days of his life on that river and...More

I am considering booking for Saturday October 21. there would be 3 adults, 16 yr old, 2-12 year old, a 9 yr old and a 7 year old. Is this a good time for this experience. What would the rates be and what times do you do the rafting. During this time of year what is appropriate dress?

Are the tubes tied together with group. Or do they all float their own ways?
