North Carolina River Riders

North Carolina River Riders

Tubing, Kayaking, Canoeing on the Yadkin River, Elkin, NC

General Information

You don't need to know how to swim to take a river trip, but you should not be afraid of the water and you cannot go out alone. Our trips are beginner friendly, but you should be in reasonable physical condition. Tube trips require some paddling, swimming, pulling yourself back into the tube, walking up and down stairs and uneven terrain, etc. Canoe and kayak trips have similar physical demands, as well as potentially carrying the boat. 

The river is NOT an amusement park; it's a natural environment. While you're out there you'll experience rocks, wildlife, and potentially other items people have left behind, like glass. Again, it's a river! Be smart and be aware of your surroundings while you are on the water. 

Our trips are unguided, therefore there are no staff members on the water to assist you. You may want to bring a phone out with you in a waterproof container. If you are going out with a group of children, we recommend making sure you have enough adults going out to help manage the group.  

Be respectful to the environment, others on the water, and our local community. Everyone wants to enjoy the river and everyone should!
