Phil was our guide down the Upper Ocoee and was AWESOME! First time for two kids (12 $ 14) and he did extra things with us that other rafters didn't do! Thanks, Phil for making us feel special and giving us such a wonderful experience on our first trip down the Ocoee! Will be back....with friends!! :) - mississippi Hunters!

We just went to this town on a whim. we were on a adventure and ended up in ducktown and found out we could go white water rafting... We went to a restaurant in ducktown and was referred to wildwater, so we thought what the heck let's go there and do our rafting. We have never done this before so we went and signed up ck'd out the place on TA. They have all new equipment and all new facilities and bar/dinning area. It was soo soo nice... Phil did such a great job helping us all feel very comfortable before/during/after. Even though we went over while having a great time in an area of the water, phil was so concerned to make sure we were all ok and having a great time. All the staff worked together to make sure everyone was safe and had enough paddles and peeps in there rafts. We also made great friends on our adventure down water.... Hope to come back soon and will take on the whole pkg... we will ask for phil to be our man on board....

We were first time whitewater rafters and we did the middle Ocoee trip at 9 am. I am so glad I picked Whitewater for our trip. We were very lucky to have had Ryan as our guide. He was very experienced as a guide (he is also a professional swim instructor) and gave us a great deal of history about the river and the area. He also customized our trip by giving us options as to how we went into particular rapids.

The facilities at Whitewater are nice and clean, and the food from the restaurant smelled great even though we didn't have time to eat. But the best thing about Whitewater is their attention to safety. We only had one raft going down the river at the 9 am slot, but we had another Wildwater employee, Andy,come with us in a kayak. Andy is a professional swim instructor as well as a wilderness EMT. Knowing that he was with us allowed me to relax and enjoy the trip.

I had so much fun on the trip that I will definitely rebook with Wildwater. I love the fact that they have experienced guides and are very concerned not only about your whitewater rafting experience, but also about your safety. If you book somewhere else, just make sure you don't get a first year guide.

This was an awesome experience for anyone who loves to spend family time together. The rafting was excellent! The guide we had (Ashley) was very experienced and knowledgeable, she was wonderful. We are definitely returning to do more adventures and memory making with our new found friends at Wild Water.

We did the ziplining/whitewater rafting summer combo package and it was perfect. We showed up at 9 for our first-ever ziplining tour and the experience was great. The guys handling our gear and fun in the trees were very professional and safety conscious. After about two hours there, we eased down the road to the rafting center for a lunch at Wildwater Willy's (a nice lunch and dinner were included in our package). Soon after, we were gearing up for our rafting trip on the Middle Ocoee River at 1. That too, was handled very professionally by everyone on the staff at Wildwater. Overall, you can see why these guys receive great reviews - they do a great job, period. If we return to the area, we know where we will go to repeat our experiences. Also make sure to note they have other locations in the Blue Ridge mountain area.
