Wahoo’s
Adventure

Family owned and operated, Wahoo’s Adven-tures is the original Whitewater Outfitter of the High Country (the High Mountains of Western North Carolina and Northeast Tennessee). At Wahoo’s, we provide river and earth adven-tures, including rafting, kayaking, canoeing and tubing expeditions, that take people away from what they do everyday and into the great outdoors. Year after year, thousands of vacationers, day trippers and locals alike gift Wahoo’s with honor of taking them and their loved ones down our gorgeous high mountain rivers! Through our adventures, people come together in an outdoor atmosphere where they can connect with one another in a way just is not possible at home.

Wahoo’s focus is on both safety and fun at the same time. Since 1978, Wahoo’s has offered the highest quality outdoor adventure experiences available east of the Rocky Mountains and is nationally acclaimed for safety and service, continually raising the bar in the southeastern paddle sports industry.

We are extremely appreciative of all of our staff who make Wahoo’s a place that people want to come back to again and again. Our fabulous and funny river guides, our excellent transportation operators, our friendly river staff and our knowledgeable call center agents take Wahoo’s goal of providing a safe and fun experience to heart. Come try our premier whitewater rafting, kayaking, canoeing, stand-up paddleboarding and tubing adventures on well-known waters such as the New River near Todd, NC, the Watauga River near Elizabethton, TN and the Nolichucky River near Erwin, TN. We offer full-service riverside outposts equipped with hot shower and restroom facilities, changing rooms, campsites and so much more!

All ages and experience levels are welcome and any size group can be easily accommo-dated.

We hope that you will join the Wahoo’s family and allow us to show you what we are about!

See you on the River !

Great day on the River!

"We went kayaking on the New River with Wahoo Adventures and had a great time! Very nice clean facility and our children 8 and 14 both had a great day. We did the long trip and took lunch- highly recommend. Owners are new this year - would definitely use Wahoo again!"
