Scenic Float Trip
River Float trips are different than whitewater rafting being on a float trip you are missing the large rapids and enjoying just floating down Watauga River viewing the lovely wildflowers, mountain vistas, and spotting wildlife without the fear of falling in the water. This trip is great for adults that don't want to hit rapids and get wet. Your guide will adjust the course to avoid the rapids so you can relax and take in the beauty of East Tennessee's Smoke on the Water. This is the only float trip offered near Boone, Banner Elk, Blowing Rock, North Carolina and Johnson City, Bristol Raceway, Kingsport, TN.
