Southern Rivers Whitewater

While winter is still hanging on in the Great Lakes, Spring is in full swing in the mountains of North Carolina. Southern Rivers Whitewater is a great way to kick off your river paddling season. Join us for 4 days of exploring, playing and learning on some premier Class 2 rivers of Tennessee and North Carolina.

We’ll choose from a variety of rivers based on the needs of the group and local water levels.  This is a skills development course for paddlers looking to build solid river running and safety abilities in Class 2 whitewater and those wanting to gain the confidence to run Class 3.
