Whitewater Express

About Whitewater Express

Since 1980, Whitewater Express has been one of the country’s premier river rafting outfitters. We were one of the pioneer outfitters that worked with the United States Forest Service to develop the rivers of the Southeast. In 1990, we were selected by the Olympic Committee to oversee all of the water sports for the 1996 Olympics! It has been our pleasure to guide over one million people since 1980 and over 1,000 youth groups through high adventure each year.
