3. Safety First

Another reason to come white water rafting with us is that we make sure each trip is safe and fun. Your safety is our top priority, which means all you have to focus on is having a great time! While experience is not necessary, we do ask that guests be able to paddle a few minutes at a time over a 2-hour period, and that you be comfortable in moving water, walking on uneven terrain and being splashed from waves. One of our experienced guides will join you on your adventure to help make sure you have a safe and exciting trip! All of our guides go through an extensive on and off river training program and are trained in First Aid, CPR and Swiftwater Rescue, and many have advanced training. You’ll also have an opportunity before your trip to ask any questions you may have!

4. Cafe On Site

If your rafting trip is scheduled for earlier in the day, visit the Apricot Place Cafe beforehand for a biscuit, English muffin or bagel for breakfast. The Apricot Place Cafe also offers catering for big groups!

5. Spend a Full Day on the River

You can spend your whole day on the Ocoee River when you come rafting with us! Our Full Day Trip features The Olympic Experience, which is an adventure you don’t want to miss. The Olympic Course is unlike any other river adventure. The first part of the course prepares you for the most challenging rapid on the river: Humongous. You’ll hit big waves squeezed between large boulders, followed by a large hole. This adventure is paired with breathtaking views of the beautiful gorge. After your 5 miles on the Olympic Course are up, you’ll enjoy a riverside lunch before our Middle Ocoee River Trip. Before the trip ends, you’ll have time to take a swim in the river! The full day trip features 10 total miles of rafting excitement.
