(We are in the Eastern Time Zone) – For your convenience, we run whitewater rafting trips on the Nantahala River several times each day. Our regular season scheduled trip times are 9:30am, 10:45am, 1:30pm and 2:45pm*. However, trip times may change depending on the time of year and the river’s dam release schedule so it is always best to call and confirm. Reservations are recommended to guarantee you the trip option and trip time that you desire. *Arriving 30 minutes prior to your trip time allows you plenty of time to check-in (at store counter) and get your group ready for your trip. Your scheduled trip time is the actual time our process starts to personally fit you into your life jacket, give instruction and load you onto the bus. If you are late, you risk being put on a later trip or a shorter trip.
