“wet your pants”
Reviewed September 10, 2013

had a great time on the river. took the full river trip about 7 hours including a nice coldcut spread on the river bank. got wet had fun and most of the group stayed in the raft. the only negative was our group was booked for 9:30 trip but they pushed us back to 10:30 trip.

“It doesn't get any better on the river than AU!”
Reviewed September 9, 2013

We have rafted the Ocoee for a number of years and have used a number of the outposts. A couple of years ago we tried AU and have not gone anywhere else since. We rafted the full river (upper and Middle) this past weekend and had a blast! The trip was enjoyable, everyone was friendly and outgoing, the food was great!

Now everyone knows a guide can make or break the trip. Our guide was Alek. As a river guide Alek looks the part, he fits the part and he is very comfortable in the part. Alek was very good as letting everyone know what was going on and what was coming up and reassuring everyone that we were going to do great! He asked us before both sections if we wanted mild or wild (to which we all replied wild!) and he delivered! Alek was knowledgeable about the river, the surrounding area and how to have a great time on the river but be safe as well. Alek made sure to tell us when we were coming to an area that we needed to really pay attention to what he was saying and also to areas where we could "have some fun" and if we fell out it was ok.
I can't say enough good things about both AU and Alek.

If you are looking for fun and want the best go with AU, and in my opinion if you want one of the best of the best ask for Alek...

“Every trip has been a blast”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

We have been on three trips with this company and every one has been a great experience. On our most recent trip we signed up to paddle the Upper and Middle Ocoee. Our guide made it easy to run the rapids in the safest way where we could take advantage of the largest rooster tails. The Upper Ocoee has some incredible rapids with great drops. We couldn't have asked for more exciting run close to home. Having paddled this river since I was about 9 y/o, I recommend this company to anyone looking for a great first rafting experience or someone not wanting all of the hassle of owning a raft who still wants to get out on the water. Our guides were Grayson and Steve. We highly recommend both.

Joe had our boat, and Bruce had the boys' boat. We all did the Middle Ocoee twice in one day. Great fun! Great guides!

“WILD FUN ON THE RIVER!”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

We went whitewater rafting with Adventures Unlimited on Saturday August 30,2013
our guide was David. This was one of our best trips. We had a great group of people from Tampa in our group, had a great time doing 360's and surfin the holes ! My husband even "rode the bull" through Hells Hole a class 5 rapid! AU is a very professional safe longstanding company that i first went rafting with way back in 1995. The guides are well trained and we spent a lot of time going over the do's and dont's even though everyone in the group was an established paddler. there were several safety stops along the trip and we felt very safe with AU ! Thanks David for an Awesome time!
