This trip was the first for the kiddos ages (12-15) plus a few friends. The girls were a little apprehensive at first, but once we started the float, nothing but smiles and rapids for next hour and half. Allison was our guide and I highly recommend her for your upcoming floats down the Ocoee. First and foremost she kept us safe and checked often with everyone that they were having a good time. She explained the history and interesting facts about rafting and the area. She answered any questions we had, and provided us with a great experience. The kiddos left conquering some fears, checking off a bucket list, and planning the next trip to float the upper section. Thank you Allison and OAR for a great family trip down the Ocoee. We will be back and we’ll use OAR again!
