I went rafting on the Ocoee with my 12 year old daughter, my sister and her other half.
First off, Wildwater is an excellent company, with great guides, are safe and have lots of experience. My sister and her husband had a package deal with zip lining and meals included for a great rate. Always check for local deals.
The Ocoee river course was MUCH bigger and stronger than the Nantahala that we went on last year. Our guide Ashlee, told us that the water was running very high and very fast. She was not wrong!!
With a combination of class III and class IV rapids, the river is a challenge, but was sooooo much fun, quite exhilerating. Ashlee guided very professionally and we all felt safe. (Another company's raft had flipped right at the first rapids in front of our eyes, which was scary).
My daughter had a blast and wants to go again next year. Ashlee let us jump into the river for a short swim and glide down the river, which was also fun. She was certainly strong in getting me back on board!!!!
Overall, this river trip is not for the faint hearted, but is so much fun. Highly recommend it.
