THE CHEROKEE RAFTING WAY!

Clean grounds. Sweetest Staff.

Clean grounds. Sweetest Staff. Our guides were Aaron and Dan. Knowledgeable, fun, mature and watched out for others on the river as well as us. I was a bit scared, but Aaron and Dan immediately made me feel confident and secure. Had a great time, but the best was Aaron and Dans enthusiasm, the river was high due to Ida rain and they explained how it made navigation different. Not sure who had more fun. Ha ha. Coming back October and will def do it again with these guys.

Had a great time !

Had a great time yesterday. Our guide Ryan was great! My husband and I both fell out of the boat which meant two had to be rescued. Everyone worked together and got us both in safely. Tons of laughs along the way. Nice new equipment. Well organized outfit. Despite falling in we both would go again in a heartbeat.

Thank you, thank you!

We highly recommend Ryan as a guide! He was so great at making this an amazing trip down the Ocoee River!! The facility was nice and comfortable while we waited to hop on the bus to get to the River. My group of 8 was over the moon with happiness from today! Thank you, thank you!

We will be back.

Drove all the way from Florida to visit the mountains and my Aunt had done a rafting trip with them and recommended them and I’m so happy we went. Aaron was our guide and so knowledgable and laid back. We had so much and made so many memories. we will be back. he made this whole experience even better.
