The Full Ocoee River Combo comes action-packed with 10 miles of frolicking class III-IV whitewater. This six-hour rafting adventure in SE Tennessee begins on the Upper Ocoee with a small warm-up section, the challenges soon increase with rapids like Mikey’s and Let’s Make a Deal just around the bend. These rapids are followed by the “1996 Olympic Course” where fast current gives way to big hydraulics and even bigger waves as you navigate Godzilla, Humongous and Slam Dunk. After a quick portage around the dam, bathroom break and snack, the Ocoee Middle offers two additional hours of the most popular whitewater in the East!
Lunch in Wildwater Willie’s Restaurant at the Rafting Center is included with this adventure. For morning start times plan to stay after your trip to enjoy lunch. For afternoon start times arrive early and have lunch before your departure time. A snack is served on the river between the Upper and Middle Sections. Enjoy this full-day, one tank adventure from Atlanta, Chattanooga and Knoxville!
The Ocoee, a Tennessee favorite, has been rated one of the ten best whitewater rivers in the country by Canoe Magazine and has been chosen as the site of national and international whitewater championships on several occasions.
