Raft and Zip with us at the Chattahoochee River in Columbus, GA and Phenix City, AL. The longest urban whitewater rafting in the world!

Trips range from Mild to Wild, with up to Class V rapids!

This section of the Chattahoochee has been described as “Wild as the Colorado and Warm as Costa Rica.” There are so many things to do after your raft trip, such as: biking on 15 miles of Riverwalk, visit Columbus’ Coca-Cola Space Science Center, The National Infantry Museum, and Oxbow Meadows. Finish your trip by dining in beautiful Uptown Columbus— it’s all right here! Come by our retail shop to pick up everything you need to enjoy your day on or off the river!

Check out the local spots at http://visitcolumbusga.com/ and http://www.phenixcityal.us/.

This course consists of over 12 rapids ranging from Class II-V. It is one of the most exciting whitewater rafting rivers in the US!

For a comparison of volume, the rapids on the Ocoee River generally flow at ~1,250 cubic feet per second in volume, while the rapids at the Chattahoochee can reach up to 13,000 cubic feet per second in volume. This makes these rapids the largest south of Canada and east of the Mississippi!

  • Great experience with Whitewater Express! We had the pleasure of having “Private” as our guide during our trip. Fun experience for the whole family. Make sure to check them out and ask for Private!! Highly recommend. We will definitely be coming back again soon!
  • We had a fantastic time on the challenge trip and the zip line course. Rafting was very exciting and our guide was very knowledgeable and helpful the whole trip. We got launched off at cutbait rapid but our guide had explained the rapid and prepared us so we knew what to do. The zip line course was great also and the guides were great also. Our trip was amazing and we appreciate all the staff for the fun, safe, and friendly experience. Would recommend to everyone up for an adventure!
