Raft One Offers Tips for the Best Rafting Seasons

The Ocoee whitewater rafting business, Raft One, discusses the best times to go rafting. The season runs from March through October with each month offering something a bit different for customers.

    CHATTANOOGA, TN, May 29, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The Ocoee whitewater rafting company, Raft One, gives a brief overview of what to expect during rafting season. When most people hear the term "river rafting," they tend to imagine cruising down the water in the summer heat. There is no mistaking the popularity of warm-weather rafting trips as this is indeed the prime time of year for outdoor activities.

However, it is also when trip prices are at their highest and tours are the most congested. If you want to save money and prefer to have a day on the river to yourself, an off-season reservation may be more suitable.

When to Raft

March has already past, but it is one of the cheapest months to go whitewater rafting on the Ocoee River. With water and air temperatures in the 50s, this time of year is a bit chillier. To keep customers warm, rafting companies provide wetsuits and spray gear. Business starts to pick up in April, but only the middle section of the Ocoee can be rafted this month. May through September is the easily the busiest season. Simply put, people like to go whitewater rafting when the weather is hot.

"The upper Ocoee is open from the middle of May until the end of September," says Dusty Rogers. "October is the final month of the annual rafting season. For sheer beauty and stunning views, nothing compares to rafting the Ocoee in autumn."

The whitewater rafting experts at Raft One remind customers to place their reservations well in advance. For more information on how to do this, please visit
