AZCA Company History
Wildwater, the original professional adventure outfitter in the SE, opened in 1971. It was founded by the Greiner family who remain the owners and operators of the company today. Three generations of the Greiners now lead and train the best adventure professionals in the industry. Today Wildwater continues to offer whitewater rafting adventures on the top river destinations in the Blue Ridge and Smokies but also lead the way in the southeast in offering tree based adventures such as zipline canopy tours and treetop adventure parks. Second generation family members and respected industry partners developed the first zipline canopy tour in the Nantahala Gorge area of Western NC and then continued to grow with a total of 5 zipline canopy tour locations and a treetops adventure park.The same dedication to the Guest experience and quality service ethic that defined Wildwater has carried over to the new tree based activities. As a family, with families, serving families... the Greiners and their dedicated team of River Guides, Canopy Rangers, and Park Rangers all seek to assure ever Guest's experience is designed to provide "The Best Day Ever!"
