My husband and 2 of our friends throughly enjoyed our day on the river. Our guide Ryan was great. He told us all about the river and all the species in the area. Everyone on the trip made sure we were having a good time. We would recommend this company for anyone wanting to white water raft.

This was our (me and my husband) second rafting experience and we will definitely be back for more. Our guides, Mary and Megan, were wonderful, as was the whole staff. It was a perfect trip, all around. Looking forward to next year!

Was in town for a wedding and went ziplining. Had a phenomenal time with the guides- Amy & Nathaniel! Both are very friendly and knowledgeable about all things outdoors! You won't be disappointed! They provide clear instructions and make sure you are safe at all times. They both work great together to ensure you have a great time! Can't wait... More

This was our first time zip lining, and we had so much fun! The zip lining was wonderful, the scenery was absolutely beautiful, and we felt safe the whole time. Although the zip lining itself was awesome, our guides, Merry and Corey, made the trip even more incredible with how encouraging, kind, and hilarious they were. They definitely enhanced the... More

We had a great time and this is a very good operation. The river is more technical (not a heavy flowing river) than the big river rafting you get in other areas, but it has some really fun rapids and drops. I wouldn't go back, but I would recommend for one time.

Thank you Wetraveler73 for the great review. The Chattooga River is a free flowing National Wild and Scenic River and as such relies solely on rainfall for bigger rapids. With the recent drought the water levels are lower than usual and the rapids not as big. Spring and early summer are good times for rafting the Chattooga as they are... More

Wild Water Rafting provided a great rafting trip down the Chattooga River. The water level was a bit on the low side (.88) so we had more rocks to work around than you would during a period of higher water level, but there were still plenty of rapids to make the trip enjoyable. Our guide, Kay, told us a lot... More
