Ocoee River Guidebook for Raft Guide Trainees

This Ocoee River Guide for Raft Guide Trainees is geared towards rafting the basic lines. Many first year guides struggle learning the rapid names and lines. This page is intended as a training manual or cliff notes to help trainees aspiring to become rookie guides on the Middle Ocoee.

The rapids of the Middle Ocoee are listed in the actual order you will encounter them on the river. Videos are provided to show some basic lines through the Ocoee rapids. The videos were all shot on the same day September 27, 2014 during five trips: 9:00 am, 10:30 am, 12:00 pm, 1:30 pm, and 3:00 pm. You may notice the time of day makes a huge difference regarding glare making it more difficult to see in the late afternoon. The five random crews provide variations in river running tactics.
