Your Whitewater Family Rafting Awaits

Ready for a whitewater adventure the whole family can enjoy? Join us on a rafting adventure down the scenic Watauga River. We’ve been rafting there for 35 years, and it’s just as fun summer after summer! We’ve got everything covered from gear to professional whitewater guides to photos of your family to a real home cooked lunch, straight from April’s kitchen. Have you heard the news? Edge of the World NC Team has earned the prestigious Tripadvisor excellence award for 2017 and that’s the 2nd year in a row that we have gotten that reward.  We offer the most whitewater on the Watauga because we are the only company that gets to go through the biggest rapid as many times as we want.  Now that’s awesome!

Riding “Rodeo” is a good way to get soaked from head to toe! Doing tricks on the raft during the re-run is a thrilling part of the day.
