Tennessee White Water Rafting - Whitewater Kayaking In North Carolina

Watauga Kayak rents touring and recreation kayaks, and inflatables. We also have several boats designed for fly fishing. All touring kayaks are restricted to calm water use only. Our inflatable kayaks and rafts are great for family Tennessee White Water Rafting, adventurous White Water Rafting NC and Whitewater Kayaking In Tennessee and North Carolina activities.


Our single recreation and touring kayaks are very stable and easy to handle. Our double kayaks are equipped with and without rudder or skeg; our kayaks are more stable than canoes. Spray skirts are not included in rentals.

If you do not have experience on whitewater, are not familiar with the rapids on the Watauga River, or if you will be rafting with children, a guided trip is recommended. Our guided trips are fully guided, meaning a guide is in every raft.

No experience required on lake rentals.

River use, we require individual paddlers to have whitewater experience for all river rentals. We will not rent to inexperienced paddlers. A liability release, and experience form must be signed prior to rental.
