The best rafting experience that we have had in the Southeast. We did the full day trip. We had a big group, so we had two guides, Alex and Will. They were both excellent!! We would recommend both to anyone that wants to have a great experience whether it is your first time rafting or you are an experienced rafter. Ocoee Rafting was one of the best organizations that we have rafted with.

What an experience! Within seconds we flipped our raft over … we went down the river… scary experience but our guide Grant was VERY helpful and guided us all to safety. We had 3 young adults and 3 older… it was a Team effort to get us all into other rafts… and other guides…Seabolt placed me safely in a raft and Zach patched up my husband. We were shaken up but WOW what a memorable experience! Highly recommend… if you are a thrill seeker… after our initial fall…. We got experienced real quick… and the rest was such an awesome experience…. Thank you to Grant… Seabolt… and Zach.

Grant was an amazing guide that hung in there with us. We had trouble figuring out where are group was most comfortable paddling at. He allowed us to adjust until we were comfortable. He also answered all the questions we asked and gave us information on all the different rapids while making jokes as well which calmed my nerves. He was very incorriging when we were paddling correct or incorrectly. Hahaha 🤣 My two nephews went for the first time and he did great with them to make sure they felt safe and had a great time. I would definitely recommend using him for your guide if you can! Thanks Grant!...even though you where the only one to smack the "booty" rock and clamed the booty was only for you! Hahaha

This was an AMAZING first time experience white water rafting. The biggest reason being our tour guide Jake!! He was very personable and knowledgeable. Not to mention he was hilarious and had us laughing the whole time :)) 10/10 would recommend to anyone even thinking about going!!!

Perfect experience. Our guide, Matthew Seabolt did incredible, kept us feeling safe but still enjoying the twists and turns of white water rafting. Super enjoyable experience, highly recommend asking for Seabolt for the best time! Perfect for families.

Will was an absolute BOSS when it came to navigating the Lower Ocoee yesterday! He and another guide are the most-experienced on the team, with 14 years experience on the Ocoee. My wife and twin sons, along with another couple, were well taken care of. He was able to make us feel safe and, at the same time, even had us doing super fun spins (intentional) at various spots (didn't see any others doing them)! Beforehand, he asked us how thrilling of a ride we were looking for, and nobody wanted it too wild. He gave us exactly what we wanted! And, he's a teacher in his other life...even more impressive! We will request him next time!

We've rafted 4 or 5 times in the past, and this outfitter is by far the very best. We did the middle-Ocoee trip and just had a fabulous time. Our guide Matthew Seabolt did a grand job taking us through the best rapids for the greatest adventure this year.

This is my second, but not last time rafting with this company! Jake, our guide, did a fabulous job making my entire party of 6 middle-aged women feel comfortable on the river. Some of us were up for an adventure and others were first timers and quite nervous. He made the trip enjoyable for everyone! We can’t wait to go back again!

I went with my Aunt and cousin Monday and came back today with my son and husband. We had so much fun. The guides made the trip. We had David on Monday and he was so much fun we asked for him again. David was on another trip and he recommended Marco. I have never laughed so hard. The whole experience from the bus ride to pull out was amazing. And memories that will last a lifelong. Very clean, very professional - highly recommend going and next time we will attempt the upper portion... we will tell everyone we know
