We rafted the Nolichucky river with our two 13 year old girls and other family. Our guides (Wes and Red) were funny, knowledgeable and skilled. We felt safe but they also made it and exhilarating experience. I highly recommend this tour.

USA Raft does not have a weight restriction. We welcome all rafters as long as they are excited to be on the water and willing to paddle! We carry extra small to extra-large PFD's (personal flotation devices).
