We spent a great sunny day rafting the Chattooga River section IV. We arrived at 8 am for our day rafting trip and were assigned to a boat and our guides. Joe was our guide on the boat and he was excellent taking us down the river through the class 3-5 rapids. He was in training by fellow guide Adam.... More

Ryan was amazing he was so personable with each and everyone of us. He identified the plant life, and history of the area. It was never a dull moment I'm... More

Went Zip lining with Nate and Mike- very cool guides and very exciting. I couldn't stop at one point and Nate stopped me by emergency brake without hurting either one of us. Friendly staff and all around good time. Also did the whitewater mini tour, also fun and the class IV at the end was thrilling. Worth every penny and... More

Wildwater, Ltd. is absolutely the best rafting company we have ever gone rafting with, and have been down the Chattooga and Ococee Rivers with... More

Went last August. The time from arriving to the office location and getting going was pretty quick. We got in a group outside the office first to go over what to expect, etc. Then hopped on a bus to the location, carried our stuff down to the put-in, and off we went. The water level was lower than usual but... More

They even had A/C, satellite TV and a DVD player complete with a copy of Deliverance. ( thought the movie was a nice touch). Our... More

We had a blast !! We took 7 of our grandchildren for the zip-lining tour. Ages from 13 to 20, and needless to say, they all had a ball. My wife and I were very impressed with Josey and Mike ( our guides), and how conscientious they were about our safety. They were also very supportive of the younger kids... More

My boyfriend and I ended up with a free weekend and randomly picked Wildwater Rafting to enjoy some quality time. We took a risk, not reading any reviews or anything! We had the best time. It was AMAZING! The staff was friendly and welcoming. Everyone was knowledgeable of the river and full of energy!! MOON DOG a.k.a Ryan made this... More
