Family First

This rafting with small children trip is designed for small children to enjoy their first rafting adventure on Watauga River while floating down the river looking around every corner for wildlife, and the unexpected..  Your children will experience the adventure of splashing waves, spotting wildlife, looking for trout and turtles along with being allowed to help guide the raft along side your trained WK Guide.  Midway down we will pull off at a special area that the kids can play on a rope swing or slide that goes into the creek, or just swim and splash in a privately owned side tributary that's a little warmer than the river perfect for small children.  We also have an old fashion O.H. at this location if you need to go.  We want your family to have an adventure to remember, book your trip today.
