Top 4 Reasons to Plan a Girls Weekend Rafting on the Ocoee River
If you’ve been thinking about a weekend getaway with your girlfriends and want to try something different, get out of your comfort zone a bit with our white water rafting trips! Our excursions run through a spectacular gorge in the Cherokee National Forest and offer non-stop action, creating an unforgettable once-in-a-lifetime experience! The best part is that no experience is required, so join us between April and October to create some amazing new memories on the river! Here are the top 4 reasons to plan a girls weekend rafting on the Ocoee River:
1. Rafting is Perfect for a Group of Friends
One of the top reasons to plan a girls’ weekend rafting on the Ocoee River is because rafting is perfect for a group of friends! Whether you’re celebrating someone’s birthday or just love to be in the great outdoors, rafting is a great option! You’ll not only enjoy a unique bonding experience, but also share plenty of laughs and screams of delight as you challenge the rapids together! Join us for our Middle Ocoee River Trip, which is the most popular rafting trip in the nation! During this trip, you’ll encounter 5 miles of continuous class III and IV whitewater with over 17 major rapids! As if that doesn’t sound awesome enough, the action all takes place among the beauty of the mountains!
2. No Experience is Necessary
You don’t have to worry about any experience as each raft is accompanied by a trained guide who will go over a complete safety orientation before you even begin the trip! We have been providing whitewater rafting trips for 32 years with an excellent safety record and you can be rest assured that all of our guides go through an extensive training program! You can also feel comfortable knowing that each guide is trained in CPR, First Aid and swift water rescue, and many of our guides also have advanced certifications such as a Wilderness First Responder Certification!
3. Photos are Taken on All Trips
Another reasons to go rafting on the Ocoee River is because photos are taken on all of our trips! After all, you’ll want to remember these incredible moments on the river with your girlfriends! The photos are available at our outpost after the trip, or you can purchase them online after your trip (they stay online for 2 weeks). These photos also make great gifts and you’ll get a kick out of your facial expressions while challenging the rapids! Please leave your personal cameras and cell phones in your vehicle to avoid damage, and you can check your car keys into our office while on your trip.
4. Celebrate Your Adventure at the Quest Outpost
After completing your white water rafting adventure on the Ocoee River, you’ll want to celebrate with your girlfriends at the Quest Outpost! This is a great place to enjoy a picnic lunch, or you can pick up a delicious meal at our convenient Apricot Place Cafe! You can also hang around after your trip to play a fun game of volleyball or a round of horseshoes! If you are looking for some other things to do while in the area, just ask our friendly staff for directions to waterfalls, hikes, restaurants and other popular local destinations!
