We paid $35 per head to take a rafting trip with USA RAFT (recommended) down the Pigeon River on a white water rafting trip that lasted a bit over an hour.
The 5x7 shot of us in the rapids cost us $10 (owie). . . and it was SO worth every single cent. This is for kids eight and up, but they have a mellower rafting trip for families with kids around six that was about $20 per head.

We traveled for an afternoon trip on the Little Pigeon River. We were outfitted with life jackets, helmets, and paddles, and told to wait. We would be assigned to a raft with another group and a guide. Since our group of three are rather - let’s be nice - out of shape, we thought they would pair us with some strong, athletic types. When we saw the other family we knew...we were the athletes of the group!
We were bused to the river and given guidance on what to do and how to survive. Rule #1, listen to the guide. Rule #2, listen to the guide. You get the idea.
Our guide was fantastic. He had us paddling in rhythm and working as a team. He was the lead guide for that outing. They released seven rafts on the Little Pigeon river. Ours was the only one that didn't get stranded on a rock, flip, lose passengers, or spring a leak.
We didn't shy away from the rough water, either. We all loved it. I'm planning my next summer trip.
