River Rafting (Fully-Guided)
Adventure at its best! Begin your 8 to 10 hour adventure by leaving your car behind and riding with us from Simpsonville/Greenville SC to the Chattooga River. For rafting in South Carolina, this is the perfect trip for novices and family groups. Most of the rapids on this section are Class II and III, gradually increasing in difficulty as the trip progresses. Bull Sluice is the highlight of the trip. Dropping 14 feet over a series of two drops, this challenging rapid provides a resounding introduction to the technical rapids downstream. This is a fully guided trip. It is a short trip from from Simpsonville/ Greenville, SC to enjoy the Chattooga River, known as the crown jewel of southeastern rivers.
This trip require that guests hike into and out of the 1/4 mile protected corridor. Guests should consider the strenuous nature of the trip and expect to assist in carrying equipment.

What to Wear
Our adventures operate rain or shine and regardless of temperature. Check the local Greenville SC and Western NC mountain weather before you arrive. Wear appropriate clothing for the expected conditions (layers recommended). Due to the nature of rafting, we recommend that guests leave valuables such as jewelry at home and cell phones in the bus during our adventures.
Cameras/phones are not recommended during rafting due to the likelihood that they will be lost overboard.
Our rafting adventures run rain or shine, in all weather conditions, unless lightning interfere with operational safety. The Rafting Course Manager on duty will determine rafting cancellations, and guests may be notified at any time regarding these cancellations. In the event that your adventure is cancelled, you will receive a full refund or rain check voucher depending on the circumstances. We reserve the right to postpone (or pause) an adventure to wait out inclement weather and then resume normal operations.
Participants should be comfortable without access to restroom facilities for extended periods of time. Restrooms are available at our facility before leaving on your adventure, and at the rafting location before and after the end of your adventure.

All guests must be in reasonably good physical condition, with the ability to hike in and out of the 1/4 mile protected corridor. This short hike is on a well maintained trail, but guests should be comfortable walking on uneven terrain. Guests should consider the strenuous nature of the trip, expect to assist in carrying equipment, and remember that our rafting adventure can last 5 or more hours.
Congrats! But we don’t want to put you or your baby at risk, so we don’t recommend pregnant people to raft class III rapids. We look forward to seeing you in 9 months!
