A group of us from work went down the river with Ocoee Outdoors, and we had an ABSOLUTE BLAST! David Wilburn was our guide, and there isn’t a finer one on that river! Time and time again, he put us on the best lines, and when we had calm sections, he kept us in stitches with jokes. Better still, he gave us background on the river, historical tidbits and even nuggets of wisdom. Truly a knowledgeable group of guides and a fantastic outfit. They make great memories, the crew at Ocoee Outdoors! Thanks again Wilburn!! You Sir, are a legend!!!!!

My family has been on many white water river rafting trips throughout the United States and we all felt this was our favorite. This was mainly due to Ocoee being an awesome white water river rafting experience but this company definitely deserves some of the credit.

This company offers a different experience than most we have used. Our trip started out poorly with a large delay and lack of communication due to them needing an extra guide to keep groups intact. Once we got on the water, the experience was nothing but positive and completely made up for the slow start. Ocoee Outdoors has slightly longer float times on the river than other companies, which allows the guides to spend more time making the ride fun. Some of their guides, after judging the comfort level and experience of the people in their boats, put in extreme efforts to eject their passengers. We rescued three swimmers and six paddles on our trip. Our guide was Connor, who accurately judged that we were definitely interested in hitting the big rapids but ejection was beyond the comfort level of some in our family. He achieved the correct balance of fun for us. We really enjoyed watching a couple of the other rafts get flipped and the swimmers that we rescued were very happy about their adventure.

The next time we are in the area we are considering booking two trips with this company, including the full day trip, and will definitely be requesting Connor for the trip.

Such a wonderful experience rafting with Ocoee Outdoors! We did a full river trip with Leshawn as our guide and would 100% request him next time! He gave great directions allowing us all to feel safe and confident on the river. He also had great energy and a personality thaf truly exceeded our expectations and made our trip full of laughter and good times! After rafting with other companies previously, my favorite part about Ocoee Outdoors is you get treated like family and they truly care about making sure you have the best time! Another thing I loved is unlike other companies, Ocoee Outdoors doesn’t pack the bus to the rim (we only had 4 rafts total). Previous companies I’ve went with had a bus packed with people and at least double that amount of rafts on our trip which made it feel less personal. I will be a returning customer of Ocoee outdoors!

My wife can’t swim and is scared to death of water. So naturally, our raft flipped within the first 5 minutes of riding! Luckily for us our guide Cole was expertly calm and cool. He eventually got the entire group back on the raft (2 of our members had to be rescued by a nearby friendly raft)

Once we all had experienced what it was like to flip over and survive it was nothing but fun times downstream. This company has each creative names for each rapid as well as entertaining ways to enter/exit them! Not all raft companies take the same course in the same style, but I am extremely glad that we ended up choosing Ocoee Outdoors!

My family- husband and two teenaged kids-- just got back from doing a full day trip on the Ocoee with Ocoee Outdoors and they had an absolute blast.  Jon, their guide, was phenomenal and really made it fun.  For those of you wondering whether to do the half day or full day, you should just go ahead and do the full day.  There were some times where you could float in the river and they even set up a superman slide, which everyone loved doing.  In fact, they all did it multiple times.  Lunch was great and it was a nice break before having even more fun.  For those of you worried about social interaction, they do a great job of it and it is great to be outside.  We can't recommend them enough and will be back.  There are also warm showers when you get back for those who want to rinse off before changing. I've attached a photo taken by the outfitters that my family purchased. I am so glad that they spent the money on the photos because the hysterical tales of their time on the river were actually documented!

Had an absolute blast! We took a group of highschoolers at a time when the River was pretty high. We had a couple spills but the fun def outweighed that temporary fear. Sarah is an awesome guide who navigated both the river & motivating 6 highschool freshman to keep paddling with ease. 10/10 would reccomend!

This was a combined trip of family, friends and a larger group. This was the most surprising fun I've had in years. I am 54 and have done a lot of things but never really had an interest in this. I went somewhat reluctantly but SO glad I did. I even took "a dip" and still had fun! There are a lot of other companies there that do these tours and we passed by several. I can tell you this, none of the other people seemed to be having as much fun as us. It's all about the people. It started with the employees at the beginning where we signed up and were briefed, and grabbed our gear - until we came off the river and bussed back. I can tell you one thing for sure, not only does the company make a difference, your guide does. We had Jordan and he IS the BEST! Very laid back, knowledgeable, helpful, funny but yet took it serious enough when a few people had fallen off along the way. You HAVE to ask for him or his father, Wilburn, whom he obviously learned from. The perfect way to get away and just to get forget about everything for a little while and have a blast.

I have never left a review before but I had a great time. My friend and I came up from Florida to enjoy Tennessee and added white water rafting to our adventure. Our guide, Casey, made the excursion so much more fun. He was very informative and made sure we went over plenty of rapids. At one point we stopped on a huge rock and he flipped our boat over creating a water slide for us to slide down on our bellies into the water. I highly recommend this company and I highly recommend Casey as a guide.

I went rafting with these guys on Monday and I just want to say the experience was nothing short of amazing. I went with a small group of friends and had Dan as our guide. Coupled with the most welcoming environment and Dan’s endless stories are jokes as a Brit I couldn’t have felt more at home and at ease. It is a core memory I will definitely take home with me and carry for as long as I am around. For anyone that is relatively local I would definitely 1000/10 recommend this place because I know I’ll be coming straight back whenever I visit the states next. Hats off to you guys for giving people one of the best memories they will ever have. (And thank you for giving me my first ever experience on an American school bus - I didn’t even know that was on my bucket list but it’s ticked off now!)

We had a blast. Ashley was an AWESOME guide. We had 2 adults and 3 youth on an adventure where we created memories for a lifetime. Sliding down slick rock, spinning through the juicer, floating through the table saw, and getting worked by plenty of waves. From the start (at the outfitters) to transportation, to rafting, and back to the outfitters, it was all organized and well run. We had a total group of 30+ (6 rafts) which made it even more fun.

Thanks,
Chris
