World Class Rafting
1400 3rd Ave. Phenix City, Ala. 36867
Come raft with us on the Chattahoochee River in Phenix City, Ala., the longest urban whitewater rafting in the world! The course has been described to be “Wild as Colorado and Warm as Costa Rica.” USA Today picked the Chattahoochee Whitewater Park as one of the Top 12 man-made Adventures in the World! The course consists of class II-V whitewater and is one of the most exciting sections of whitewater in the US! We are able to run two types of trips (Classic and Challenge) on the same 2.5 mile stretch of river due to the dam-controlled release which occurs daily! During the day, the river will run at approx. 900cfs with Class I-III+(IV) rapids which is a perfect combination of fun and adventure for the whole family! In the afternoon, the water cranks up to 9,000-13,000cfs (10x the morning flow!) with Class III-V rapids, which are some of the biggest on the east coast and provide for a wild and exciting trip that is unlike any other on the east coast! Come join in the excitement and experience some of the biggest rapids east of the Colorado, right here on the whitewater section of the Chattahoochee!
