Cherokee Rapids Tubing and Kayaking

Welcome To Cherokee Rapids

We are the biggest, best and friendliest tubing outfitter in Cherokee, North Carolina — home to the Oconaluftee River, which is widely known as one of the cleanest, clearest and most beautiful rivers in the SE United States. Our Little Princess location is the only one with direct access to the Oconaluftee River.  

We are open daily, Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day weekend from 10:00am to 5:00pm each day (WEATHER AND RIVER CONDITIONS PERMITTING). 

Cherokee Rapids... more rapids, more fun, longer trips, better scenery, BEST value!

Please be advised that we will not put anyone on the river if current or future conditions are deemed unsafe by management.  Our number one goal is the safety of you and your family.  No alcohol, glass containers or Styrofoam coolers please.  Due to the Type I & II rapids, no one under 5 years old is allowed and we strongly advise against pregnant women or non- swimmers floating.
