We had fun. The river was crowded with all the inner tubes. They do a good job of getting you to the right place

We had a fun kayaking trip. The currents are steady, but mellow. You stay busy the whole time so the time goes by quickly. We would go again.

The staff was amazing and so knowledgeable And funny they made the experience 100000x better! Kayak was pretty difficult but once I got the hang of it we manage to make it to the end in one piece!! I love the area and the food surrounding it, I can’t wait to go back and try tubing next time !

Q&A with Woody, Owner

When and how did you first develop a passion for your work?
I have always enjoyed the outdoors and what mother nature has to offer. The enjoyment of watching my kids with smiles on their faces is awesome to watch.

What is one fun, unusual fact about your business?
This is considered a small roller coaster-type experience with small class II+ rapids. The more adventurist the individual is, the more that helps in creating an enjoyable day.

What is the experience customers can expect, and how do you make it special?
They will be surrounded by North Georgia mountains, the beautiful river, and picnic areas on the river.

Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
This is not a lazy-river float. The Cartecay River is considered one of the best "natural flow" rivers in North Georgia and maybe North America.
