  • If you’ve been looking for a way to introduce your kids to whitewater rafting – or if you’re a newbie yourself – this half-day trip is perfect for new adventurers, both young and old alike. The bottom route of Chattooga River’s Section 3 is an exciting stretch with Class I, II and III rapids, ideal for debut paddlers. No experience is needed on this 4-hour whitewater journey.

    Picture it – you’re riding the rapids and paddling along with your family to navigate the currents. Water splashes and you all cheer as your professional guide helps you find the line to navigate through to the other side. Put in on the banks and reward yourself with some delicious riverside snacks and a quick dip to splash around in the river’s natural swimming pools.

    If you’re feeling up to the challenge, at the end of your journey you’ll have an opportunity to attempt Bull Sluice, the Chattooga’s famous Class IV rapid that plummets 14 feet over a series of two thrilling drops.

    Rated by Southern Living magazine as the “#1 Thing Southerners Must Do,” a whitewater rafting trip on the Chattooga River is a great family outing!

  • For this experience, our partners are taking extra measures to help prevent any potential spread of COVID-19. Our partner’s number one priority is to help protect their guests by wearing face coverings when appropriate. They kindly request each guest to have a face covering to use while at their facility. These coverings may include a cotton face mask, a disposable face mask, or a bandana. While they aim to provide soap and hand sanitizer whenever needed, they request you bring your own to guarantee availability. Additionally, our partners will be implementing a more orderly check-in system and ask that only one person from each party come inside to check-in. Furthermore, our partners request that each person completes an online waiver prior to arrival.
