Wildwater is a company with family in mind.  Which is why we love it when families work for us: on the river, ziplines, or in other aspects of our company.

The Barnetts are a family who have been rafting with us for many years.  Al began working here in 1985, and passed on his passion for whitewater rafting and kayaking, as well as the outdoors in general, to his sons Trey and Walt. Al is a Trip Leader, safety-boater and part-time raft guide. Trey is currently the River Manager at our Chattooga location, and Walt is a part-time raft guide there.
