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.
