With more than 5 miles of continuous rapids, the Middle Ocoee River adventure best suits first-timers. The gentler rumbles give them time to learn the ropes before taking on the final and most challenging section of rapids. Alternatively, the Upper Ocoee River starts slowly but picks up speed over a stretch of Class III and IV rapids. Each outing lasts about 3.5 hours, with 2 hours spent on the water and 1.5 hours spent orienting visitors and convincing the raft that it won’t be as scary as last time.

Sunburst Adventures

Launching into the Ocoee River, Sunburst Adventures' rafts of whitewater adventurers bump and glide over currents with gradients up to 50 feet per mile. An experienced guide mans the helm, offering instruction and zany anecdotes, as rafters navigate past bushes and trees and around three risky undercuts for a challenging, yet safe, excursion. Sunburst's carefully selected team of enthusiastic rafters has been taming the rapids of the Ocoee and sharing their love for the sport and the great outdoors since 1976. Groups of experienced and novice boaters quickly become familiar with a good soaking as they tackle roaring rapids such as Hell's Hole and Godzilla attempting to bend their boats in two as they jostle their way down the river's 10-mile stretch. For a more leisurely way to enjoy the natural splendor and warm waters of the river, aquatic types can tube the Lower Ocoee, which is known for expressing much calmer waters ever since it kicked its pot-of-coffee-a-day habit.

Reviews

The guides were very knowledgeable and safety conscious. All the equipment was in excellent shape and the staff were friendly and helpful.

They take their time and don't "rush" you down the river and we got to spend some time playing in the rapids and doing some neat things!

    “We rafted the Ocoee via Groupon on 8/7/14 and it was the highlight of our family summer vacation. Our guide, Tripp, was awesome and is highly recommended. He along with Sunburst Adventures emphasized safety and fun. Trip provided tons of information about the area and recommended dinner at the nearby White Water Grill restaurant which was excellent and we also recommended. The bus trip to and from the launch / pick-up area was also entertaining as the guides shared in comical banter. Book in advance. ”
