Extreme Tubing on Watauga River NEW for 2021 Season at Watauga Kayak a great mix between whitewater rapids class I & II, and a little calmer moving water for active thrill seeking families. You must be in good physical shape for this tubing on Watauga River you are paddling to avoid hazards on the river. Guided Extreme River Tubing Watauga River is about 4 – 6 miles and approximately 2.5 hours long depending upon the day you paddle, and has at least one trained guide along to show you the best way down the river. We recommend 7 yrs. and up paddling, but you may also want to tow a younger child. No alcohol on this trip its a family day. Best for people that know how to swim this is not your grandmas river tubing.

See if a Guided Extreme River Tubing Trip is for you! A great way to cool off during those hot days. Book online to save your place.

Looks like we will be dealing with covid-19 in 2021. The best way to start your paddling experience is to make sure you wear your mask when checking in, and wash your hands afterward. The next thing i would suggest is to make sure you are paddling with your group only – Meaning your family will be the only ones in the raft, or if you are paddling a single craft you are not too close to others. Keeping safe and distanced are the best ways to help not spread this virus. Paddle safe, have fun.
