Why Wildwater? Because “It’s Like Being with Family”!

We often get asked “what is the difference between Wildwater and the other companies?” A good question – we all do the same sections of the river, we all have a similar safety record and our equipment is comparable.  The difference?  We treat each of our Guests like family and believe that it is our family atmosphere and our Team Members who distinguish Wildwater from the other companies.  We have many Legacy Team members, meaning that their parents are current and former Wildwater Team members who have passed that love of Wildwater and the river on to the 2nd, and in some cases, 3rd generations.  When you Live Adventure with Wildwater you can count on being a part of the Wildwater family!

Recently, on TripAdvisor:

“Rafting with Wildwater was the highlight of our trip! Wildwater’s team is exceptional to say the least. They focus on safety but certainly don’t forget the fun!”

“If you you are planning on taking a rafting trip on the Chatooga, Wildwater is the choice for guide company. Their professionalism and down home customer service makes for an incredible experience on the river!”

“I would just like to commend the guides and the owner for providing excellent facilities and excellent service.  I have rafted the Ocoee before, but I must say that we had an outstanding experience with this company and we will definitely use them again.”

“We could not have asked for a better trip. Our guide took great care of us, the training was appropriate, the action on the river was outstanding and the scenery was breathtaking.”

“The staff was amazing!  They went above and beyond to make everyone feel safe & welcome!”

“Glad I choose a family-owned company.”

“We’ve rafted with larger companies before in other areas, and wanted to try a smaller, family-owned company this time. We weren’t disappointed. It was really nice to feel as if “your” trip was specifically important.”
