Family Rafting Adventure on the Watauga River

Watauga River Outpost

Family and adventure are hard pressed to be found in the same sentence, but not at Wahoo’s Adventures. On this quiet and picturesque river, family and adventure go hand-in-hand, with programs designed for all ages. Gentle rolling class I and II rapids and one exciting class III complement this serene float trip through the Tennessee foothills, where farms and wildlife dot the landscape surrounding this beautiful river and its ecosystem.
