Whitewater Express was chosen to oversee the watersports portion of the 1996 Summer Games. Even then the outfitters were veterans of the rapids—they began in 1980. Over the years, Whitewater Express guides have led more than a million people down the waterways of the Southeast.
The rapids here are some of the biggest and most thrilling on this side of the Mississippi, and since the weather is warm most of the time, Whitewater Express is able to stay in operation 365 days a year. Guides lead excursions along rivers including the Chattahoochee and the Ocoee; click here to see a video showing rafters in action.
