Rode with a family of 4 and we had a great time. Drew was an awesome guide and very helpful with recommendations for other outings.

I'm sure it had everything to do with our guide, Mike Ryan, but we couldn't have had a better time. This place doesn't hire inexperienced rafting guides. It was safe & a blast.

Great time! With only four women in the raft with Miles we were apprehensive but Miles got us through the rapids and down the river just fine. He was a great guide! We will be back next year and will request him again!!!

It was everyone's first time whitewater rafting and we were a little nervous. However, Drew led all 8 of us in the party raft with no problem and had some pretty funny jokes! I highly recommend Big Creek Expeditions and hope you get Drew!

Thanks for the inquiry! Of the two sections, the Scenic Float on the Lower Section of the Pigeon River is very calm with a small taste of whitewater. Guests on this section can expect great scenery, some fun splashes, and... More

Good question! Unfortunately though, Benji was not able to be on the river with us this year. He has been dealing with some health issues that have kept him from being a full-time guide. We definitely miss him and hope he... More
