the weather gets too cold for whitewater rafting on the Nantahala. Our busiest
season, and the time of year that we employ most of our personnel is June July
and August. This time period works out great for college students who want to
do river guiding for the summer, teachers who want to work in retailing or desk
management, and for school bus drivers (CDL license required) who want to drive
raft buses while school is out for the summer. We will work with you on your
college/school schedule. We have both full time and part time work.
