TRIP INFO

THE MIDDLE

The middle section of the Ocoee River is America’s favorite stretch of whitewater with some of the wettest and wildest action around! This section is great for beginners or the experienced rafter with over 20 continuous class III & IV rapids. With plenty of places to surf and play, you’ll see why thousands of folks return year after year to raft this classic 5-mile run. Starting just below the Ocoee Dam No. 2, you’ll encounter your first big rapid, Grumpy’s, then its on to Broken Nose, Roller Coaster, Table Saw, Hell’s Hole and many more. Top that all off with a great place to swim about half way down and you’ll certainly become “one” with the river. Our wonderful river guides will help make your adventure one to remember. Better bring a change of dry clothes…you WILL get wet! (Remember: Children must be at least 12 years old to raft the Ocoee)

THE FULL

Ready for a full day of adventure on the Ocoee River? This is classic Tennessee white water rafting at it’s finest, including 10 miles of raging rapids to wet your appetite. We’ll start you off in the remote gorge near Ocoee Dam No.3, then it’s on downstream to some intense class III & IV big water. About half way down, the Ocoee River narrows into the Olympic white water competition course. Your adrenaline will be pumping! Your Full River Trip includes a riverside picnic lunch served at the end of the Upper section. Picnic lunch includes sandwiches, chips, cookies, fruit, sweet tea and lemonade. Just when you thought you’ve experienced it all, we’ll shoot down the middle Ocoee and take on over 20 more class III & IV rapids including Double Suck, Flipper, Diamond Splitter and Hell’s Hole. This combo trip takes about 5 hours to complete. This trip is only available on weekends from mid May thru September, so don’t wait to book it! This is one white water adventure that’s tough to beat.

THE UPPER

Ready to take on the waters that challenged Olympic athletes in 1996? Then buckle your chin strap, cinch down your life jacket, and grab a paddle! It’s time to get on the upper Ocoee, with rapids named Mikey’s, Let’s Make a Deal, Godzilla and Humongous to name a few. This magnificent adventure starts you off in a remote gorge with panoramic scenery and pure serenity, but shortly picks up with some intense class III & IV whitewater bliss. The main attraction of this section is the 1996 Olympic Whitewater Course, with spectacular rapids raging just feet away from the banks. Here you can either watch the action or BE the action! Be prepared to get soaked to the bone. (Remember: Children must be at least 12 years old to raft the Ocoee)
