Top 10 Reasons to Go Rafting with Carolina Ocoee

Top 10 Reasons to Go Rafting with Carolina Ocoee

  1. The Best Guides on The River

    Our guides are some of the best on the Ocoee River, with a average of over 10 years of experience on the Ocoee River alone. They work hard to give every guest the best river trip possible.

  2. Family Owned

    We are a family owned and operated whitewater outfitter. Rafting with us helps a small mountain family and not a shareholders stock price. We are directly involved in the day to day workings and we love what we do.

  3. Small Trip Focused

    We are a small outfitter with a focus on running high quality trips. Our trips are typically no more than 6 boats big. This allows us to get to know our guests and give them the right trip for them, and not just a generic trip.

  4. Highest Quality Equipment

    We use and maintain only the highest quality gear and equipment. In our industry keeping and maintaining the right gear, in good condition, is incredibly important. We are the only outfitter on the Ocoee river that exclusively uses Hyside rafts (the most durable and maneuverable raft available).

    *Always be wary of a outfitter with old worn out equipment.*

  5. Friendly and Knowledgeable Staff

    From the time you call to make a reservation to when you leave us after your trip you will find our team helpful, knowledgeable and courteous. We love whitewater rafting and are excited to share that with everyone we can.

  6. More Whitewater

    We schedule for more time on the river than the average outfitter. This means more time rafting, surfing, sightseeing, laughing, splashing, and having the time of your life.

  7. Best Location

    We are located between Ducktown and the Ocoee Gorge. This puts us only a few miles from the Ocoee Gorge so you have a short bus ride to and from the river. As well as being convenient to Atlanta, Knoxville, and the beauty of the Smoky Mountains.

  8. Safety Focused

    We maintain a high focus on providing the safest trip possible. We work hard to balance safety and fun in a responsible way. While we cannot absolutely insure your safety we take every opportunity to lessen the risks without weakening your experience.

  9. We Love Whitewater

    It is that simple. We do this because we love it and want to share it with everyone. When we are not working on the river we are out playing on the river. This is not a job for us, but a passion.

  10. It Is A Lot Of FUN!

    Whitewater rafting is fun, exciting, and can be life changing. Come share this adventure with us.

    *Warning whitewater rafting can be addicting. We assume all responsibility for this.*
