Description of trips:
1/2 day trip:
This whitewater rafting trip begins at Barnard N.C. and finishes at Stackhouse N.C. The rapids in this section are class I-III including Big Pillow, Sandy Bottom and The Ledges. This is a great section of river for first timers or folks who have been rafting before. Typical time on the river is 1 1/2 to 2 hours. A couple of factors that effect the time on the river are the size of the trip and the level of the river. A small trip at high water will move faster down stream then a larger trip at lower levels. Add an hour of getting ready and transportation before putting on the river, and an hour of transportation, changing clothes, photo show, etc after taking off the river for a total trip time of 3 1/2 to 4 hours. Please keep in mind that this time frame is an approximation based on our 20+ years of experience on this river. Please let us know if you are under any time constraints. $44.00 ($39.00 each for groups of 10 or more. Groups of 25 or more please call)
1/2 day with lunch:
This white water rafting trip travels the same section as above. The pace for the lunch trip allows more time on the river and includes a stop along the way for lunch. The lunch is deli style and is served riverside. The time frame for this trip is the same as the half day trip. Add about an hour (depends on trip size) for lunch and a more leisurely pace. Please let us know if you are under any time constraints. $52.00 ($49.00 each for groups of 10 or more. Groups of 25 or more please call)
Full Day Trip:
This whitewater rafting trip starts a Barnard and finishes 8 miles downstream in Hot Springs N.C. This is your chance to spend a big part of your day on the river. There is a stop for a deli style lunch, served riverside. This section includes some very beautiful scenery and the spectacular class IV rapid Frank Bell's. Time on the river for the full day trip can range from 3-5hours depending on the size of the trip and the river level. There will be an hour of instruction, gear fitting, and transportation before putting on the river, and an hour of transportation, changing into dry clothes, photo show, etc. after taking off the river. This adds up to a total trip time of between 5-7 hours. Please keep in mind that this time frame is an approximation based on our 20+ years of experience on this river. Please let us know if you are under any time constraints. Also, please be aware that summer-time river levels may make it necessary to alter this trip and make it a half-day with lunch trip. If you reserve a full day trip and we have to change it to a half-day with lunch trip, you will be refunded the price difference. Please call if you have any questions. $66.00 ($63.00 each for groups of 10 or more. Groups of 25 or more please call.
