Ultimate Kids Whitewater Rafting Trip! (11:00 AM) This is the ultimate whitewater rafting trip for younger kids and whoever goes with them. It's also great for beginners and anyone wanting extra attention. This trip has the best weather, the best boat selection, more guides per guest, smaller trip size. Bounce and churn through fun and exciting (but forgiving) rapids like Papa Bear, Moonshot, Double Drop, Slingshot, Surfing Rapid and Sharks Tooth. Add our 18 years of experience taking younger kids whitewater rafting, our popular kid-friendly guides, and a fun and exciting (but still kid-friendly) stretch of whitewater, and you get the Ultimate Whitewater Rafting Trip for Younger Kids. The trip comes with our Ultimate Money Back Guarantee.
Allow about 3 1/2 hours for your trip (you'll be on the water for about 2 1/2 hours).
Try a ducky solo!
Ducky Solos are inflatable kayaks! They are great fun for teens, active individuals, and a parent and child.
What to wear?
In warmer weather wear shorts, a light shirt and shoes that can get wet. Shoes are required, and we have water shoes available for rent at our shop. In cooler weather, a jacket and hat may be helpful. You may want to bring a change of clothes - we have changing rooms in our rafting center for after the trip.
Great Family Fun: Kids and their families and friends are our specialty, not a sideline. The focus of our trips is for you to have a fun family adventure. Our trips are not wild or crazy, they are fun and family oriented. It's great fun for kids and adults!
Great Group Fun: Family Reunions, Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, Church Groups, Work Groups, School Groups...We do lots of group trips, and they find the Tuckaseigee River a pleasant change of pace from wild, crazy whitewater. And, more members of your group can join in on the fun. Group rates are available. Give us a call or email.
Great Area for Kids: Our mountains are a great place for kids. Families with younger kids will enjoy lots of quality activities at a slower pace surrounded by incredible scenic beauty. We've developed an activity list, Kids' Stuff in the Mountains, to help you plan and enjoy your stay in the mountains and a Kids Friendly lodging list. We can e-mail you a copy.
Great Guides: All our trips are guide-assisted with helpful, friendly guides who love the outdoors and are great with kids. We have a guide for about every 12 guests, but not in each boat. You may pay an extra $10.00 per person to guarantee a guide in your boat.
