White Water rafting was on the bucket list of a friend, so despite my fear of water, she convinced me to go do the Upper Ocoee in the beginning of August. Luckily she did a through review of all the companies, and we chose Rolling Thunder. What an experience! They made an adrenaline packed adventure accessible to even the likes... More

Had a great time rafting on the ocoee with a few of my coworkers. We did the double trouble with lunch. The weather was great and so was the overall experience! I would definitely go again!

We were looking for excitement and found it! Our guide, David Woods, was incredible at navigating the challenging rapids and maintaining the utmost safety while dishing out a multitude of whitewater thrills. So worth it.

Talk about a WOW factor ... My first time whitewater rafting and Rolling Thunder delivered in spades. Two adults and one 12 year old and we hit the middle river on a Monday afternoon. I was very impressed with how organized the staff was and their emphasis on safety. While the rapids were scary, I never felt in danger. Props... More

Hands down the best experience that I've ever had white water rafting. We had Coach as our raft guide and was the absolute best! We had such a great time on Saturday that we pushed our flights back on Sunday and went back for round two. Definitely recommend this company and HIGHLY recommend Coach if you want to have a...

My company peeps decided to embark on an adventure journey, so I enlisted my wife to look into white water rafting in N. GA. She used this site to do her research and because of the great reviews, she chose for us Rolling Thunder River. We started with just my close friends, but ended up with reserving two boats. Saturday,... More

Went rafting in the middle section on Saturday with Coach as our guide and had such an amazing time, we came back Sunday to do the upper section with Coach as well. He made our trip even that much more fun and exciting. Company is organized and easy to go rafting with... highly recommend, especially COACH!

My wife and I decided to do a white water float trip on the Oceoee River. Having never done this before, she was very nervous about going. Before we left to go on the river, the guides showed everyone how to sit and row in the raft. When we got there, the guides got everything ready and we hopped in.... More
