Come raft with us on the Chattahoochee River in Columbus, Ga. and Phenix City, Ala., the longest urban whitewater rafting in the world! The course has been described to be “Wild as Colorado and as Warm as Costa Rica.” There will be other things to do after your raft trip, such as: biking on 15 miles of RiverWalk, visit Columbus’ Coca-Cola Space Science Center, The National Infantry Museum, and Oxbow Meadows. Finish your trip by dining in beautiful Uptown Columbus— it’s all right there.  Come by our new retail shop to pick up everything you need to enjoy the day on the river. 

This course consists of over 5 class 4+ rapids and 10 smaller rapids. It's one of the most exciting whitewater rafting rivers in the US! The biggest distinction between this river and other rivers is the volume of water which will be in the river when it is rafted.

For comparison, the rapids on the Ocoee River can reach up to 1,100 cubic feet per second in volume, while the rapids at the Chattahoochee can reach up to 13,000 cubic feet per second in volume. This makes the rapids the largest south of Canada and east of the Chattahoochee!
