Traveled down the chattooga river today with 29 people on an all day trip. Was a fantastic experience. The guides were well versed in the water flow and gave us a chance to watch a raft travel through a class 4 rapid prior to sending us on our raft. My 8 year old was terrified and the guide, was patient... More

We were relieved to learn that Whitewater Rafting was still guiding trips out of Chatooga River in September. It was raining, but the guides had no worries. The rain actually helped us to move through more rapids. All of the guides were safety conscious and fun-loving at the same time. Asia was our guide and proved that Girl's Rule because... More

.We rafted section 3. Our guide Cody made the trip very fun. He shared plant information and river history with us. You could tell he enjoyed his job. He allowed us to ride some of the whitewater just using our pdf's. Don't pass this up!! I was concerned that the water might be very cold seeing it was the end... More

My family and I stayed in the lodges for my wedding weekend. On Saturday, 7 of us rafted, and our guide Chris was amazing! So personable and you could tell he really enjoys his job. The pictures are awesome and being able to get in the water, swim and actually slide down was a real experience. They provided lunch, wetsuits,... More

Very organized zip line tour. The guides were great. The next to last line was long, fast, and fun. The other lines can be a little short which means the tour takes a while due to all of the hooking and unhooking if there are several people on your tour.

We went there at the end of May/15 for the weekend. The first day we did the Lake Tugaloo Seakayak Tour. It took about 3.5 hours. Our guide was very nice. He educated us about the water, and the area's environment while we were paddling. At the half way point we stopped and sat on the rocks. He brought our... More

The staff was wonderful - friendly, funny, professional and experienced! We had a group of 15 and everyone had a fantastic time. Three bonuses - we didn't know we were going to have three opportunities to swim - and unique opportunities at that - one was in a hole like small cave, another was sliding down a rock then over...

This was the perfect "beginner" trip on the Class 2 Mini Trip... 2 adults and 2 9 year old girls that were very nervous. Quick waters, but not rapids. The final drop was a Class 4 6 foot waterfall that we enjoyed a lot. The company was nice, the facilities were clean and well maintained. The reason I gave it... More
