Southern Rivers Whitewater

While winter is still hanging on im 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.

There is an option for an ACA Skills Assessment during the Southern Rivers Whitewater Trip.  Skills assessments are great way to measure your development as a whitewater paddler.
