Classic Southeastern Rafting
"The #1 Thing Every Southerner Ought to Do!" Southern Living
Chattooga River whitewater rafting offers the mild and scenic Section III and the wild and scenic Section IV, two distinct and memorable river trips. The Chattooga delivers breathtaking scenery and treasured whitewater in an unmatched wilderness setting. NOC has been leading trips on this federally-designated Wild and Scenic River since the company's beginning in 1972.
NOC guides are the most experienced on this river. Our guides receive the most extensive training of any outfitter on this river, and we're the only company on the Chattooga with an entire fleet of self-bailing rafts. This means we can optimize each trip for maximum enjoyment, no matter the water level.
Your family will love exploring whitewater on the Chattooga's Section III, surrounded by wilderness and removed from crowds. This section offers Class II-III rapids, with a big finale at Bull Sluice Rapid. Great for families with older children and for youth groups, the Chattooga is a river that begs to be explored.
Made famous by the film Deliverance, Section IV is the classic Southeastern whitewater rafting run. Float past awe-inspiring scenery, take the time to explore river features and paddle through some of the most heart-pounding drop-pool rapids to be found anywhere. The trip's highlight is arguably the run through the famous Five Falls, where five tumultuous Class IV+ rapids unfold in quick succession.
Group and off-season rates are available.
All NOC Chattooga River trips depart from our Chattooga outpost, near Clayton, GA.
