Chattooga Whitewater River Rafting with NOC


Name the number one thing every
southerner ought to do by Southern Living magazine, The Chattooga River is the
South’s ultimate outdoor adventure. The river’s starring role in the 1971 film,
Deliverance, secured its place as a southern legend. And the rivers key role
in the development of whitewater sports has made it the bar none classic
Southeastern whitewater river. Since 1974 the Chattooga has been protected by the
National Wild and Scenic Rivers act. This act protects a quarter-mile river
corridor on both sides of the river keeping the primitive wilderness
undisturbed by any modern development. For rafters this means they will have an
uninterrupted wilderness experience surrounded by rugged rock formation,
thick forests, and abundant wildlife. Rafters planning a trip can choose from
two different Chattooga experiences: one mild, the other intense. Section three
offers stunning scenery and fun family-friendly class two and three
rapids. Section three also boasts an optional class 4 Rapid, Bull Sluice. Much
more like the bigger rapids downstream, the Bull gives rafters a taste of the
more difficult section for experience. Section four is the more difficult of
the two offering fifteen large named rapids. Seven Foot Falls and Raven Shoot are two
guest favorites. Section four also boasts the Southeast’s most hallowed whitewater
experience, the Five Falls. The Five Falls is a series of class four and five rapids
that unfold back-to-back in a rugged river gorge. Entrance, Corkscrew, Crack-in-the-Rock, Jawbone, and Sock’em dog are the sight of thousands of river stories. Trips on
both sections take approximately six hours and are accompanied by a riverside
lunch including our famous homemade salsa and hummus recipes. Because the Chattooga is federally
protected, NOC only has a limited amount of spaces available per day. Popular days
tend to book well in advance so don’t miss out. Go to NOC.com and book your
Chattooga River trip today.

  1. They always play the wrong kind of music in these videos.  Even so, I hope to be doing this in the near future!

  2. Can one ride a funyak/ducky, solo, or a kayak? Or does one need certification? What's it like getting certified?
