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 is a lightweight, stable craft that is operated by one person.

boats has advantages and disadvantages depending on the water level.
Clothing You Will Need
Foot protection is
required (old shoes or sandals). You will get wet! Bring a change of
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,
hat, and sunscreen. In the spring when it is cold, wool and Polypropylene,
other synthetic materials are recommended. Cotton will rob the body of heat
when it is wet. Paddle jackets and pants and wetsuits are available.
