We’ll be happy to share information about white water rafting and specifically choosing to ride down the Ocoee River with us!

1. Learn About Every Trip

ocoee raftingOne of the most important tips we have is learning about every trip that is available. You want to be sure that you know exactly what you’re in for when you book a specific excursion. You don’t want to be surprised when you have specific expectations in your head. Luckily for you, we have a variety of trips for you to choose from! Our Middle Ocoee River Trip is known as the “nation’s most popular” rafting trip! You’ll ride down the middle section of the river and possibly experience class 3 and 4 rapids along the way. If you want a little more adventure, choose the Upper Ocoee River Trip, which takes you along the upper section of the river and through the 1996 Olympic Whitewater Course. Want to spend all day on the water? Then book our Full Day Ocoee Rafting Trip!

2. Book Trips Early

A super helpful tip for white water rafting in Ocoee with us is to book your trip early. We can’t guarantee that the time frame you’re wanting to go rafting will be available the closer the date gets. We recommend planning in advance to ensure you book the exact trip you want during the time of year you’re planning on being in the area. Then, you’ll also have to decide what time of the day would work best for you. Don’t wait until the last minute to book your white water rafting trip!

3. Consider People Going With You

If you know there is someone who doesn’t love thrills but is trying white water rafting for the first time, you may want to consider going on the Middle Ocoee River Trip. If you have a whole group of people who love adventure and want to get as many thrills in as possible, then the Full Day or Upper Ocoee River Trip is the perfect choice!

4. Find Out What to Wear

An important tip we have for anyone wanting to come rafting with us is to learn what you should and shouldn’t wear white water rafting. Of course, you probably want to wear a bathing suit, but if you think you may be chilly or you want more sun protection, you may want to wear a wetsuit or a swim shirt. Plus, you want to be wearing appropriate shoes, know which items to leave in your car or locker, and don’t forget the sunscreen!
