We run trips “rain or shine.” Whitewater rafting is an inherently wet activity, in fact we think this is the very best outdoor activity for a rainy day!

We accommodate 4-7 guests per boat but have a limited number of larger boats that hold up to 9 guests.

Walk-ins are welcome, but to guarantee space on the trip of your choice, we recommend reservations! This holds true even more so on holidays and summer weekends. A lot goes into the planning of a river trip, including scheduling of guides, photographers, and bus drivers.

Please visit our individual location pages on the Chattahoochee, Ocoee, and Nantahala Rivers for more information about all of our trip offerings and to make a reservation.

We ask all our guests to arrive 30 minutes prior to your trip. This extra time is to complete our check-in process and gear up for your adventure. Please allow 15 extra minutes in your travel as occasionally parking can occupy more time than expected, especially when coming to white water raft in the Downtown Columbus GA location.

Wear clothes that you don’t mind getting wet (because you will)! We recommend quick dry activewear, swimsuits, and sunscreen!  Avoid cotton clothing. All our guests must wear shoes that stay on their feet. Swim shoes, sandals with a heel strap, or even old sneakers work great. Flip flops are not recommended and shouldn’t be worn.

At our Georgia location, where we take guests Chattahoochee River Rafting, we raft year-round and are closed only Christmas and Thanksgiving.

At our Tennessee location, where we take guests Ocoee River rafting, we raft on the weekends from mid-March to Memorial day. Five days a week (except Tuesdays and Wednesdays) from Memorial Day to Labor Day and weekends from Labor Day to the end of October.

Participating in an outdoor adventure does have inherent risks and hazards. We take every possible precaution throughout our operation to provide safe trips. You must take responsibility for following our instructions and guidelines.

It is important that you dress appropriately for the weather. Please wear clothing you can be active in. Thin layers or workout type clothing is recommended. On hot days wear clothing you can be active in and don’t mind working up a sweat in.

If you are arriving on a cooler day there are 2 elements of clothing that can make all the difference. In this case we highly recommend bringing a light weight fleece base layer and or a lightweight shell. You will also need proper foot wear with secure heels and covered toes such as sneakers.

Because memories of your trip are important to us, we have photographers on-standby for each trip (weather permitting). On all of our river trips, you can view your photos as you return from your adventure!

The longest urban whitewater rafting course in the world is located in Columbus, Georgia. This course extends for about 2.5 miles along the Chattahoochee River, right through the heart of downtown Columbus. The course offers class II-IV rapids, and it’s a popular destination for rafting and whitewater kayaking enthusiasts.
