Our Ocoee River Guides
OAC’s Ocoee River Rafting Guides
Our Ocoee River Rafting Guides represent an interesting cross section of life experiences – all with one thing in common – they love the river! Some of our guides are lifelong, full time guides who follow the water (or the snow in the winter) as a life path. Others are teachers, EMT’s, professions or college students.
Whether guiding rafts on the Ocoee River is their full time profession or a summer job, you can rest assured that our guide staff are the most professional, highly qualified guides on the river. Our guide training program is administered by our Trip Leading staff, who have 100+ years of experience among them. It is a very long and intensive program – and you can rest assured that, even if you have one of our youngest guides, (s)he will be more than prepared to give you the Ocoee River Rafting trip of a lifetime!
All guides are certified in CPR and First Aid. In addition, at least one guide with each trip has a minimum of a Wilderness First Aid level of certification to be able to respond quickly and proficiently if anything happens while on the river.
