Choose from 3 of the Best Whitewater Rafting Rivers in the South East
Enjoyed by canoeists, kayakers and rafters alike, the Nantahala River is one of the most popular rivers in the U.S.! You will enjoy eight miles of Class II-III whitewater. Flowing through the Nantahala Gorge, an area revered by the Cherokee Indians. The word Nantahala itself means “middle sun” or “midday sun” in the Cherokee language. With its crystal clear, Class II-III water, the Nantahala is the perfect river to enjoy with family and friends. We offer trips year-round, seven days a week.
Located just over the North Carolina/Tennessee border is the world-famous Ocoee River. The Ocoee offers two exciting sections of Class III-IV whitewater, making it one of the most popular river runs in the southeast. It is also accessible from almost any point in the southeast for a day trip! The Ocoee is a dam-controlled river, so with very limited release dates throughout the season, check for release dates, trip options and prices.
Extremely continuous and physically demanding, the Cheoah is the perfect choice for those looking to take the whitewater experience to that next level. Our trip includes twelve miles of Class IV+ whitewater, a mid-term hike up Bear Creek Falls, and a riverside lunch. With very limited release dates throughout the season, check for release dates that will work for you.
