WHAT WE’LL COVER
After meeting and getting all the Waivers signed we’ll board the bus for the short journey to our start location. Next our experienced guides will deliver a full safety briefing. You’ll get all your rafting gear and have a chance to ask any questions you might have.
ENJOY THE SERENE WILDERNESS
Our starting point offers stunning scenery and a real sense of being in the wilderness. You won’t find too many other rafters here so you’ll have a long chance to take in the beautiful Cherokee National Forest. Don’t forget to keep your eyes out for bald eagles, black bears and wild pigs. We’ll begin with some gentle Class II rapids giving you a chance to build your team strategy for the more challenging Class V rapids ahead!
THE FUN’S NOT OVER YET!
After we’ve refueled, it’s time to hit the final section of the course. The middle Ocoee River section will take you through the beautiful Ocoee River Gorge. We’ll tackle Moonshot which has the best spins on the course as well as Flipper (a classic Ocoee playspot) and the longest rapid, Tablesaw! As you raft your way down you’ll become more confident working as a team and more skilled at paddling through these Class III & IV rapids.
Once you’ve worked your way through some of the smaller rapids, your guide will lead you on to tackle the most intense stretch of whitewater! We’ll hit half a dozen Class III and IV rapids including Best Ledge, Callihan’s Ledge and Edge of the World. Through these rapids, your expert guide will be there to make sure you’re having a great time while going for the gold!
DELICIOUS RIVERSIDE LUNCH
We’ll take a well earned break to fuel up under our riverside pavilion at the Olympic Section. Fill up on our freshly prepared buffet-style homemade lunch with all the trimmings. Enjoy lunch along the bank watching all of the other rafters taking on the mighty Godzilla and Humongous!
BACK TO BASE
Once you’ve tackled all the awesome rapids we’ll get you onto dry land and transport you back to The Outpost. Here, we have hot showers for you to freshen up and you’ll be able to see the professional photos of your Cascade Outdoors trip. We also have a plenty of picnic tables where you can enjoy a post-rafting lunch and get busy planning your next tour!
