Fast Rivers’ staff and guides make every reasonable effort to assure you and your party a safe & enjoyable rafting experience.

Each guide is trained and certified in First Aid and CPR. However, the sport of whitewater rafting has inherent risks and dangers that are beyond human control and must be assumed by the participant. We do not assume liability for personal injuries or death.

All participants and guests must agree to travel at their own risk and are required to sign a waiver of liability/assumption of risk document prior to the trip. Any participant under the age of 18 must also have a parent or guardians signature.

For the safety of all, the use of alcohol or drugs before or during a river trip is strictly prohibited. We will remove anyone under the influence of these substances from the trip and no refund will be given.

The United States Forest Service requires all rafters on the Nantahala River to be at least 7 years of age OR 60 pounds (NOT both).
