Best Ocoee River Guides

Our Ocoee River Rafting Guides represent an interesting cross section of life experiences. Our river guides all like to have fun and love the river! Many of our guides are whitewater kayaking enthusiasts. Some of our guides are lifelong full time guides who follow the water and sun for endless summers. While others chase the snow in the winter as a life path. Others are teachers, EMTs, 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 and highly qualified guides on the river.
