So much fun!!
Kate N. · October 3, 2016
I enjoyed being able to do it by myself. They do not give you pointers on how to paddle or maneuver but do talk in depth about the river and how to navigate it.

My husband and I and our 12 and 10 year old had a blast doing the self- guided whitewater rafting. Scenic, thrilling, and a great time.

About Paddle Inn Rafting Company


With years and years of experience navigating the river's rapids, the Thomas family has some strong opinions about which watercraft provide the best experience. When they first got started, they weren't able to find any with all the features they wanted, so they decided to design their own. Paddle Inn's signature rafts were created specifically for riding the Nantahala River, and they boast a number of features intended to provide the optimal experience, including urethane undersides, which allow the rafts to easily slide over the occasional rock or kraken.

The rafts transports patrons down the river on guided trips and self-guided excursions aboard rafts in multiple sizes, as well as inflatable kayaks. These vessels can accommodate couples all the way up to groups of eight. After a trip, river trekkers can dry off by perching next to a crackling fire or spinning around in a circle really fast.
