NOC has been leading trips on the Chattooga since the company’s inception in 1972. In fact, NOC’s founder, Payson Kennedy, was a stunt double in the movie Deliverance, which was filmed on theWild & Scenic waters of the Chattooga River.
NOC offers two distinct trips on the Chattooga River so you can choose the trip best for you & your group (and BOTH include lunch along the scenic river!).
Section III is what NOC calls “Mild & Scenic”, with numerous swimming holes it’s the perfect trip for families with children 8 years & up.
Just downstream on Section IV, the Chattooga picks up pace – with the action beginning with Seven Foot Falls & culminating on the infamous Five Falls,where five adrenaline-pumping Class IV rapids follow in quick succession. NOC is able to offer you the best in whitewater rafting on more than just the Chattooga River.
