About Us and Our Beginnings

Wildwater, the oldest outfitter in the Southeast, started on the Chattooga River in June of 1971.  Jim and Jeanette Greiner pioneered the company, along with the help of their four children.  Today, the company has grown beyond the family boundaries on the Chattooga River to include the Ocoee, Nantahala and the Pigeon Rivers.

In addition to whitewater rafting, Wildwater offers zipline/canopy tours, canoe and kayak clinics, Raft & Rail© excursion, high ropes course, climbing walls, teambuilding and a variety of lodging facilities- Falling Waters at the Nantahala, the largest, was opened in July, 1998.
