Paddle RaftWhat Kind of Boat Should I Take?
The Nolichucky is a naturally fed river so water levels change throughout the season. Our fleet includes crafts to suit any water level. We use both self-bailing and non-self-bailing rafts as well as Funyaks. What is a Funyak? A Funyak is a lightweight, stable craft that is operated by one person. Funyaking adds to the fun and excitement as well as giving you a sense of freedom. Our guides and rafts accompany all Funyak trips. Our experience tells us which type of craft offers the best ride; therefore we will have the final say in which craft will provide you the maximum fun, excitement and safety. Each of the boats has advantages and disadvantages depending on the water level.

Lunchtime!Clothing You Will Need
Foot protection is required (old shoes or sandals). You will get wet! Bring a change of clothes , shoes and a towel for after the trip. Mountain weather is unpredictable, so come prepared for anything! In the summer, we recommend shorts, a T-shirt, a hat, and sunscreen. In the spring when it is cold, wool and Polypropylene, or other synthetic materials are recommended. Cotton will rob the body of heat when it is wet. Paddle jackets and pants and wetsuits are available.
