SELF-GUIDED RAFTING TRIPS & RENTALS

High quality boat rentals are available for North Carolina rafting trips on the Tuckasegee River. Choose from self-bailing rafts and inflatable kayaks, sit-on-top kayaks, and new tubes.

The Tuckasegee River, with its warmer waters than other area rivers and fun class II rapids are a perfect match for families.  Our extensive rental fleet has something for everyone. 

Rafts

Our rafts are light and easy to handle for the average family. The otters are very stable option for the family or groups looking for an all-together river trip. Minimum age of 4 or 40 lbs. 

Adults - $20
Kids - $15 (12 and under) 

Tandem Inflatable Kayaks

More maneuverable than rafts and our most popular boat. A great option for a family of five with one younger child is for two of the older kids to paddle an inflatable kayak (aka as a "duck" or "duckie") together with mom and dad with one child in a raft.

*At least one person in the the double duck must be an adult.

 

Adults - $22
Kids - $17 (12 and under) 

Solo Inflatable Kayaks and Sit-On-Top Kayaks

For folks looking for some extra adventure and challenge, and are ready to get wet!  These boats are great fun on this mild river. It helps to know how to paddle (at least a little bit). This option is available for those 13 years of age and older. 

$30 per boat
