This was our first time rafting. We did the lower Pigeon family float with Chris as our guide. He was the best! Our six year old daughter was nervous before the trip and Chris made her feel completely at ease on our trip. We will absolutely be returning to Rafting in the Smokies next summer!

We did the lower Pigeon Family Float. Our group included 4 adults and 2 six year old boys. The trip was perfect for our needs! The boys had the opportunity to swim and try their hand at paddling. We went over a couple of fun rapids and had opportunities to sit back, visit and enjoy the scenery as we floated along. Our guide Brooks was excellent! He was great with the kids and was also very knowledgeable about his job and the area. He was very personable and made the trip great! Before the trip we had the opportunity to use the playground and explore the area. We will be definitely be back!

Rafting on the Lower Float and letting the Kids try paddling had to be a lot of fun for them. We are offering great SPRING pricing if you book early for this year. See you on the river!

White water rafting was the best part of the trip. Never lost anyone out of our boat and had a riot. Guide was awesome. I want to go again

We had the best time rafting the Lower Pigeon. Our guide, Staci, was knowledgeable, strong, and just plain fun! She made great conversation and we definitely felt safe with her. Will try the Upper next time!
