Whitewater Rafting Trip Information
Middle Ocoee Rafting Trip
The Middle section of the Ocoee River is one of the most popular sections of whitewater in the US. The Middle offers a thrilling 5-mile rafting trip with Class III and IV rapids from start to finish. The trip lasts about 3 hours from when you leave the Outpost and return, with about 1.5-2 hours on the river. Each raft holds 6 guests as well as an experienced guide who will cater to you and your group.
Upper Ocoee Rafting Trip
The upper section of the Ocoee River has some of the most spectacular scenery that can be enjoyed by boat. The first few miles begin as a mild class 2 and 3 ride through the beautiful Cherokee National Forest. As you encounter class 4 rapids such as Mikey’s Ledge, Let’s Make A Deal, and Blue Hole, the pace of the action begins to accelerate. Upon arriving at the banks of the Olympic Section, you will get to paddle through some of the biggest rapids the Ocoee has to offer. The trip stays very splashy all the way to our lazy float and swim to Ocoee Dam No. 2. Taking out there, you will have completed 5 miles of world-class white water.
Plan for a half-day experience; available weekends only. Don’t miss your chance to see why the Olympics came to the Ocoee River!
Upper/Middle Ocoee Rafting Trip (COMBO)
If you’re looking for a full-day experience on the water, our combo trip combines both commercial sections into one 10-mile ride down the mighty Ocoee River. Also included in your trip is a riverside lunch that we at AOA provide halfway through your journey. Spending almost 5 hours on the water, you will encounter endless class 3 and 4 rapids, including the Olympic Section at the Ocoee Whitewater Center. In 1996, the Olympic Games came to the Ocoee River to host the whitewater events. The spotlight brought global attention to the region, making the Ocoee River one of the top 5 most rafted rivers in the nation. The combo trip is the premium ride for those in search of spending the day with us paddling one of the world’s most amazing rivers!
