1. We Have Rafting Trips for All Ages
It doesn’t matter if you’re turning 12 or 50, we have a trip perfect for you! If you’re new to rafting or have never tried it before, we recommend the Middle Ocoee River Trip. Here, you’ll get to take in the views of the stunning Cherokee National Forest for 5 miles, all while enjoying the splashes and thrills the river has to offer. If you’re more on the adventurous side, you have to check out Full Day Ocoee River Trip, or the Upper Only River Trip. Both of these trips take you through the 1996 Olympic Whitewater Course, as well as provide you with class 3 and 4 rapids!
