Our group of 4 was scheduled for a raft trip with Sunburst at 2:30 on a Saturday, and thunderstorms were in the forecast. As the coordinator, I tried multiple times/multiple methods to reach them for possible rescheduling and was unable to. Not one of my emails, phone messages or Facebook messages was returned until after the scheduled trip - highly unprofessional. Apparently the entire company closed shop and went to a rafting camp in WV, with no one even checking messages. Groupon was unable to contact them either, so I was given two credit vouchers (thanks, Groupon). When I was finally able to contact Sunburst the following week, I was told the additional TVA fees of $30 I paid were non-refundable, even though the situation was undeniably the company's fault, and no fault of our group's. We were offered rescheduling, but it was late in the season; it had been incredibly hard to coordinate the schedules of 4 people for this trip, and we were unable to coordinate for another date. Even after a very nice, professional letter to the company explaining the entire situation & asking again for a refund of our additional $30, the company did not even respond to the letter. This was our group's first experience with Sunburst Adventures, and it will be our last. We will spread the word to others as well. If you wish to deal with a professional, honest and fair company, you need to look elsewhere.

This was absolutely amazing! We had "Splash" as our rafter guide, he was awesome. He kept us from capsizing, doing real well in guiding us through the rapids. One area was calm water, so he let us get into the water and swim a little, then we were brought back into the raft, before we headed over some rapids again. This was a great adventure, I highly recommend it.

We had a great time. Felt safe and secure but still had adventurous fun. Our guide was the best. He was the lead (can't recall his name). Loves FL and FSU. Will return.

It was a little difficult to find, but it was worth missing our turn. The guides were all amazing. Our guide was Ben and he made our trip amazing! We wish we would've taken the day trip with him instead of just a half. We were on the newer boat. It was so much more comfortable and had actual slots for our feet. We are definitely booking with Benjamin again!

I took a group of students from my church and they LOVED it! We had a guide named "Teach" and he was amazing! He did a great job with the guys and they are already talking about going back to raft with him! Thank you for the incredible time!

From Our Editors

For over 40 years, Sunburst Adventures has thrilled millions of visitors on whitewater rafting trips down the Ocoee River since 1976. Rafts are helmed by experienced guides who provide a balanced diet of useful instruction and funny anecdotes, creating an experience that is fun, challenging, and safe. Groups of experienced and novice boaters get drenched as they tackle roaring rapids such as Hell's Hole and Godzilla while careening their way down the river's 10-mile stretch. Small breaks are taken from rafting to let paddlers cool off and even take a dip in hidden, lesser known "fun spots" on the Ocoee River. And for those seeking a more leisurely experience of the river's natural splendor, tubing down the calmer waters of Lower Ocoee is a great alternative.
