Choose Your Georgia White Water Rafting Trip

Our Classic Rafting trip is geared to families and well.. EVERYBODY!  Anyone looking to have a fun introduction to whitewater and those who are just looking for a good time on the river will love it!

The Challenge Trip, is where it really gets wild and is offered only in the afternoon due to an increase in flow from Georgia Power’s North Highlands Dam. On this trip our rafters have the opportunity to run one of the wildest and largest rapids on the East coast called Cutbait. This rapid really packs a punch! Another highlight is running multiple laps of our most popular rapid and the home to our World Class “Good Wave” competition feature, Waveshaper! We are here to provide one of the best and certainly most memorable adventures of your life. Not only is this the best whitewater rafting in Georgia but also the longest stretch of urban Whitewater River in the World!
