The Dillsboro River Company is a wonderful asset to Western North Carolina. The DRC offers guided rafting tours, canoe, kayak and raft rentals in addition to tubing opportunities.
With such beautiful landscapes as the surrounding Western North Carolina Mountains, floating down the Tuckaseegee is a great way to relax with the family and share an adventure you’ll be talking about for years. With average water temperatures in the 70’s, the Tuckaseegee River is the ideal location for fun on the water.
Owned and operated by Shane Williams and his family, the DRC was founded in 2001 and continues to serve tourists and locals alike as they embark on new adventures everyday on the Tuckaseegee River.
Shane is a graduate of Western Carolina University with a Bachelor of Science in Parks and Recreation Management with major emphasis in Outdoor Education. His water adventures have included leading programs in southeast and Central America. Before opening the DRC Shane worked for his alma mater as the Outdoor Programs Coordinator in the Student Affairs Division. After leaving WCU, Shane opened the DRC to accomplish a lifelong dream of balancing his work and family life.
“I couldn’t imagine my life any different working and playing with my family on the river,” said Williams.
