We offer several fun white water rafting trips that are considered one of the nation’s most popular outdoor adventures! Here are the top 4 reasons why you should celebrate with a day of rafting on the Ocoee River:

1. Unique Adventure

Our Middle Ocoee River Trip is a 5-mile rafting trip that runs through a breathtaking gorge in the Cherokee National Forest and features more than 17 major rapids! If you are seeking even more thrills, consider the Full Day Ocoee River Trip that includes both the middle and upper sections of the river. Along with 13 additional rapids through a section of the river that was part of the 1996 Olympic Whitewater Course, you will have the chance to experience the river’s most challenging rapid known as the Humongous!

2. No Experience is Necessary

One of the benefits of rafting on the Ocoee River with Quest Expeditions is that no experience is necessary! Every raft is accompanied by a trained guide who will provide a safety orientation with your group before the trip. The only restrictions are that participants must be at least 12 years old, in good health and have a chest size no larger than 56 inches. Also note that pregnant women are not permitted to participate, so keep these things in mind when planning your celebration!

3. Small Group Sizes

Fun Ocoee Rafting TripWhen you join us for a day of rafting on the Ocoee River, you will be on a raft with up to 5 of your friends, along with your guide. This allows for a fun and private experience with your group that you will remember for a lifetime! Just remember to make your reservations together under one name so that we can guarantee that you will be sitting together. If there are more than 6 people that will be joining you, the rest of the group will go in another raft.

4. Fun Dining Options

No celebration is complete without a fun meal, so you will be pleased to know that Quest Expeditions offers several fantastic dining options! If you are joining us on the Full Day Ocoee River Trip, this excursion features a delicious riverside lunch where you can make your own sandwich and enjoy peel-n-eat shrimp, fruit, chips, cookies and drinks. Otherwise, you can have your own picnic or cookout after the trip at our covered picnic area with charcoal grills! If you prefer not to pack your own cooler, take advantage of the Apricot Place Cafe that can cater your event!
