I took my grandson (10 years old) for an adventure. We both loved it. We did the "milder" trip which had plenty of excitment. The staff did a great job explaining how to use the gear and what their expectations of us were. I felt well prepared just in case we fell out, which didn't happen, but it definately eased... More

I am so thrilled to have found Wildwater Rafting...it was such a fantastic and well-run place. I did not know much going into it but was absolutely impressed by every bit of the experience. I was pleasantly surprised that we received two meals, and the peanut butter and trail mix were just amazing. The guide was great and my group... More

Staff was professional and friendly. All of our guides were fun. Stayed at the cottage. It was OK. Futon could use an update as well as noisy AC unit.

An excellent day out with a very well organised and friendly team! We had Dylan as our guide and he was great with excellent knowledge and people skills! Made us feel very welcome and was patient and fun. We were very late arriving and all the team were incredibly helpful in ensuring we still made it to the raft so... More

We had a fantastic time rafting on the Chattooga River with our guide Dylan. it was the first experience for our kids and he guided us extremely well and made them feel very safe and relaxed throughout the trip. It took us a while to decide on the company since we have an eight year old, but glad we went... More

We rafted the Chattooga Section III with Wild Water last week (Aug 13, 2015). Though the water level was a little low, the experience was great. We took 55 students and adults down the river that day and the Wildwater staff was excellent. Oh...and the students still can't stop talking about how great the lunch tasted. Thanks for a great...

What a great day out - Asia is the perfect raft leader - but all the staff are super fun, talented and safe!! Little hard to find the place as tucked away in the countryside. Don't go if your unable to walk up and down steep slopes to get in and out at start and end of the ride. Took... More

I took family and friends on two Ocoee River trips this summer. One in June and one just yesterday. These folks really know their stuff. Acacia and Mark were our two guides this summer. They both have a real passion for the water and safety. Ask for one of them when you book your trip! They run through October. It's... More

We had a blast! Brandon was a terrific guide and was highly entertaining and very knowledgeable about the river. The mini trip is terrific for younger kids!
