Rafting The Nantahala in May - Sign Up Now

Posted on May 3 2016 - 8:47am

The early cost estimate for this trip is $42 per scout 
This includes TWO trips down the river, equipment rental, meals and campground fees.


Location: Western North Carolina  

Nantahala River rafting includes Class II-III rapids through a beautiful and scenic gorge. The Nantahala River runs clear and cold as it is released from the bottom of Aquone Reservoir. Rafting trips are eight miles in length with an overall gradient of thirty-five feet per mile. The name Nantahala is a Cherokee word, which translates into “Land of the Noonday Sun,” because the canyon gets little sunlight until the sun is almost at its peak…around noon.

Level of Difficulty: Class II-III

Most of the popular rapids are on the upper half of the river. With good current and consistent waves, the Nantahala is the perfect river for a family whitewater adventure. The biggest rapids are Patton’s Run, Delebar’s Rock and Nantahala Falls, a Class III drop just above takeout. Nantahala Falls was once considered Class V before techniques and equipment improved and the rating came down to Class III-.
