Middle Ocoee River Adventure - Book Now and Save 40%!
"Are we gonna do THAT?" It's the same question out of everyone who comes face to face with The Classic Middle Ocoee River Adventure for the first time. Seasoned rafters just sit back with a grin on their face as the bus continues on to the put-in below the dam at Ocoee No. 2 on Highway 64. These folks already understand the thrill of whitewater.
The Ocoee River is a whitewater gem located in southeast Tennessee loaded with Class III and IV whitewater. It all starts with a little rapid called Grumpy's that is either going to start your trip off on the right foot OR remind you how important it is to paddle together with your boat mates. After a little team huddle, your crew will enjoy the eye opening ledges of Broken Nose, the rolling waves of Slice and Dice and the fun little hole we call Second Helping. Everyone enjoys a good Indian story around Moonshoot and the drops at Double Suck will wake you back up as you prepare for your photo opportunity at the infamous Double Trouble. These three standing waves are guaranteed to make you shriek in delight.
The halfway point brings along the quarter mile stretch called the Doldrums and the opportunity to relax and catch your breath before heading on down to Tablesaw and Diamond Splitter - two back to back Class IV rapids so no lilly dippin.' Ride those waves at Western Flyer and see if you can get slung around in Slingshot right down to Cat's Pajamas. No one is quite sure how this rapid was named as we have never seen a cat wearing pajamas. And for the big finale... Hell's Hole and Powerhouse Rapid. This awesome Class IV hole hides underneath the bridge which connects to TVA's Ocoee No. 2 Powerhouse. Brace in, paddle hard and enjoy because as soon as the hole releases you, there are two more drops before you are home free.
This five mile adventure ends at the Caney Creek takeout. Grab your gear and jump on the bus to head back to Adventures Unlimited where your dry clothes are safely stored in your car. Grab a quick shower, enjoy your dry clothes and take a look at your pictures to see how crazy you all looked out there.
