  • Me and my buddy, who have rented kayaks a couple easy places but don't have tons of experience, rented a 2-person "ducky" and went out on the Nantahala with NOC yesterday (March 22).I highly recommend renting with them. We met Lee Knight, one of the guides there, and he helped get us equipped and gave us great advice. He and the other employees were friendly, welcoming, and knowledgeable. We paid 39 a person to rent and we were out on the river for about 2.25 hours, with most of the time spent on some fast moving whitewater. It was very exhilarating being out there when the temperature in Bryson City was around 57 degrees. We loved it. Will be back with more people soon.
  • Rafting on the French Broad was exciting and fun! The guides are fantastic. I can't say enough about how fun these guys made the trip. Only downside is that the corporate office hasn't fixed the showers or the mid-trip gazebo. These guys could use a little more support to make the experience First-Class.
  • This place gets better every year it seems like! Staff is great and the activities are on point. A great weekend getaway.
  • Fun day! Dale Stine was our guide. He was very professional, and highly entertaining! He made took us through all the rapids with no mishaps! Thanks for a great day from start to finish.
  • Excellent. Memorial weekend and a ton of fun. Clean bunk rooms, good food and a lot of friendly hikers and weekenders.
