OCOEE RIVER WHITE WATER RAFTING
Saturday, September 6th through Sunday, September 7th
All spots are currently taken on-line. If you would like to register for the Ocoee RIVER Saturday, Camping, Half River Sunday, or mtn biking then please contact Ocoee directly:
Ocoee Adventure Company
Come with us to the Ocoee River this Fall for a full weekend of rafting with the very experienced guides of Ocoee Adventure Center. We will raft the upper and middle sections of the river on Saturday and spend the night at Frog campground. On Sunday, you can choose to raft or mountain bike. This is one of the most popular trips of the year, so don’t miss out on America’s Olympic River with Class III & IV rapids! Check out the article about rafting at Her Nashville
FULL RIVER SATURDAY
On Saturday, September 6 we will raft the FULL Ocoee (upper Olympic course and the middle section) for 10 miles of whitewater excitement. All gear and guides will be provided. Lunch will be served on the river.
Upper Ocoee – The Olympic Challenge!
Prepare to challenge the water that has taken on the best boaters in the world. The Upper Ocoee, site of the 1996 Olympic Whitewater Competition, is to be open for only 34 days during the 2008 season, so take advantage of this great opportunity. It’s a great trip by itself, or can be combined with a Middle Ocoee trip for a full day of whitewater adventure.
Middle Ocoee – Miles of Fun!
Are you ready to tame the Middle Ocoee, America’s most famous section of Class III-IV whitewater? This is five miles of nearly continuous whitewater excitement! Names of the rapids conjure up images of fun and real adventure— Grumpy, Double Trouble, Tablesaw, and the awesome Hell’s Hole. A trip on the middle Ocoee is one you’ll talk about for years.
Launch time for the FULL RIVER is 10:30am EST, and we will be done by 5:00pm EST. The price of this trip is $65 (normally $91) and includes full river trip and lunch. The full river trip is open to members only.
