Taking applications for 2016!

March 23, 2016

As the old saying goes, if you do what you love, you’ll never work a day in your life. Outdoor Adventures is now hiring for its 2016 team, and we’d love to have you on board. Ready to get started? Start the application today! Not sure about being an outdoor adventurer? We have a couple of good reasons you should join the Outdoor Adventure team:

You’ll work in the most beautiful place on Earth.

We’re located on the scenic Big Pigeon River in Eastern Tennessee, just on the edge of the Smoky Mountains.


The Smoky Mountains National Park is the most visited park in the country for a reason. With 65 species of mammals, 80 types of reptiles/amphibians, and over 200 varieties of birds, the wildlife alone can draw a crowd. There are also more runnable whitewater rivers near our location than any other place ON EARTH, making it the perfect place for Outdoor Adventures.

We’re hiring raft guides, bus drivers, and office staff.

For Raft Guides, you need a good attitude, a terrific work ethic, and a BIG smile. Many of our customers say their guides “make their trip,” so it’s a big responsibility ensuring they are safe, satisfied and having fun. (Check out our TripAdvisor page to see how integral our guides are to the customer experience.)

Bus Driver applicants must have Class B CDL with P endorsement.

You’ll work 4 days a week.

Our season is Memorial Day (May 30) through Labor Day (September 5), every Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Saturday. We’re located just about 40 minutes away from Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge, so you there’s plenty to do in between work days.

Interested? Training class begins May 16, so we hope to hear from you soon! Fill out an application, or give us a call at 866-333-RAFT.
