Chattooga River whitewater rafting offers the mild and scenic Section III and the wild and scenic Section IV, two distinct and memorable river trips. The Chattooga delivers breathtaking scenery and treasured whitewater in an unmatched wilderness setting. NOC has been leading trips on this federally-designated Wild and Scenic River since the company's beginning in 1972.
NOC guides are the most experienced on this river. Our guides receive the most extensive training of any outfitter on this river, and we're the only company on the Chattooga with an entire fleet of self-bailing rafts. This means we can optimize each trip for maximum enjoyment, no matter the water level.
