We where told what to expect and what to avoid and how to navigate down the river. Ya well we did everything they said to be careful and not do. Not on purpose... More

We used Paddle Inn Rafting back in 2011 and were very pleased. So, when we were passing through on our way to Asheville this June, we had to recommend Paddle Inn Rafting and "mom" to my group. So much fun, that we had to go chill in July with a trip with Paddle Inn and then. . ., my daughter... More

We can't come to Bryson City and not enjoy some white water rafting and I promise Paddle Inn is the best. We use the 3 man Funyak. It is so much fun and we always look forward to stopping in for a ride. By the way the owner "Mother" is awesome.

Rates are great and its exciting enough to be an adventure but not terrifying. None of us had ever been before and had a great time!

We went to Paddle Inn Rafting on Monday, August 15 and had the best time EVER! The owners are wonderful and the staff is hilarious. Our tour guides were amazing, friendly and made sure we had a blast on the river. Great family owned place and cannot wait to go back next year.

We traveled from East Coast of NC for some family time with boys who are in their last year of high school. Paddle Inn was real down to earth, professional and fun!! What I liked the most was "Mom" the owner prays a blessing of protection over each rafter and boat before they leave. Our guide was Ricky Bobby... and... More

This was the first time my 11 year old granddaughter & I have done white water rafting. It was so much fun. Everyone was super nice. Our guide Graham was awesome, he made the trip even more fun. We are going back tomorrow!

Thrilling and fun! Three 50+ ladies took a guided raft trip and had a great time! 2 other friends took a double raft and paid for our guide to watch them too! We were given a lesson and "Mom" (a manager?) sent us off with a quick prayer for a safe return. I thought that was really sweet! Our shirtless... More

I'm so glad we chose Paddle Inn for our first time rafting. The staff was extremely helpful and our guide Devin was amazing! He did a great job getting us unstuck a few times as our boat was "heavy" and the water levels were low. Everyone had a blast, we would definitely recommend Paddle Inn to anyone!
