We went on this awesome rafting adventure with Trey as our guide. Trey told us history of the area, and safety about rafting. This was my first time rafting and with all the 360 degree turns, rock bumps, and kayak dodging it was great. I didn't know we were such a pros. No matter how old you are rafting is... More

Last week we brought our family of six to do the all day, section III rafting on the Chattooga River and had a blast! My youngest daughter was really nervous as it was her first time rafting but our raft guide, Asia, was incredible with her! She tipped the raft on purpose so my daughter could see how to get...

We took a seven hour rafting trip on Section IV of the Chattooga. This was my first time using Wildwater, and I was very impressed with their operation. The base lodge was very nice, check in and safety procedures were efficient and professional. Our guides were excellent and we had a fantastic time! Highly recommend.

This is the second year that I have used Wildwater Rafting for the Chatooga and wouldn't choose anyone else. They are the best at what they do. For the last two years everyone in my group choose this activity as the best of the trip. From booking the reservation to the personal touch from arrival to departure is tops. The... More

We took a family vacation and visited wild water rafting on our last day. It was so much fun!! Our guide, Asia, was nice and friendly just like all of the other guides! If you are wondering if this would be fun for your family, it is great for all ages. Fun for all!!!

Went on a family vacation and went rafting on the Chattooga river with Wildwater Rafting. It was awesome! It is such a beautiful river, and the guides do a fantastic job of keeping you safe and entertained. They had good food too.

I went with my wife, brother, and father for Father's Day and did the section 4 trip. After trips down the natahala, Oconee, and this trip, I'll drive out of my way for this experience over the closer options from ATL. The staff was very friendly and our guide Asia was great with our group. She kept an upbeat attitude... More

Taking raft trips with this company is a thrill! I've had the pleasure of rafting on the Chattooga River several times with them and the great experience they provide is consistently exhilarating! Their enthusiastic and skilled guides make this challenging river come alive for both novice and experienced rafters. Underlying the thrills, is a deep commitment to safe practices. I've... More

Best guided rafting trip I've done in a long time. I chose to go on the Sunday trip which includes class 3 & 4 rapids and with the river levels up they were not only fun but challenging. My guide, Drew Tedder did an amazing job keeping us in the raft and knew how to navigate the rapids very well.... More
