At Ocoee Adventure Center, we pride ourselves on having the most experienced and fun-loving guides on the river! You can request a guide in advance when you book your trip.
You do not want to miss the opportunity to get to know OAC’s infamous Kris Kross! A local from Chattanooga, he is familiar with all East Tennessee has to offer. Kris has been a rafting guide for over 15 years. In the off-season, he manages a local health plan in Chattanooga.
When asked what makes the Ocoee River unique, Kris had this to say:
“The Ocoee is one of the most accessible rivers and when proper skills and protocol are applied, it’s statistically one of the most visited without incident. There was a large investment in 1996 to host the Olympic whitewater canoe and kayak slalom events. Even prior to that, the Ocoee was a national treasure.”
*Please note that leaving a gratuity is a great way to show your guide appreciation for a fun day on the river.*
