What You'll Get
Commuting via raft has a number of advantages: there are no traffic jams, there are no hitchhikers with hooks for teeth, and if you hit a deer it's definitely the deer's fault. Revel in road-free recreation with today's Groupon: for $159, you get a two-day overnight rafting trip down the Chattooga River led by Southeastern Expeditions, located in Clayton (up to a $319 value).
Steep in tranquility and wrestle with whitewater during this two-day excursion through the varied riverscape of the Chattooga. Skimming along a national wild and scenic river, this trip boasts about 22 miles of free-flowing rapids with minimal raft traffic and picturesque wilderness vistas. Each small group of rafters will have tents, meals, and limited beer and wine provided for them. Camp overnight in provided tents (bring your own sleeping bag) in Sumter National Forest, where you'll be treated to an expertly prepared steak and trout dinner and be roused in the morning by a country-style breakfast. Since 1972, Southeastern Expeditions has been leading nautical frolics throughout the southeastern United States. Its founder served as John Voight's stunt-double during the filming of Deliverance and again during a particularly treacherous acceptance speech.
TripAdvisors give Southeastern Expeditions an average rating of four owl eyes:
