Ace can take you beyond the thrill of whitewater rafting. If you’ve wondered what it would be like to paddle your own kayak, here’s your opportunity
For over the past 15 years Ace has been leading thousands of guests down the amazing Ocoee River. We are the only licensed funyak outfitter on the Ocoee, and we offer one of the most personal and extreme whitewater trips commercially available. Your day begins with a flat-water warm-up where you will work alongside professional kayakers to improve upon and better your understanding of paddling form, technique, and theory. After this, your adventure then culminates with five miles of some of the best whitewater in the country.
“You see a horizon line ahead, and your guide suddenly vanishes. As you approach the drop, you realize you have been here before. It’s Table Saw, the Ocoee’s most formidable rapid. In a stable 14-foot raft, the rapid felt like a friendly roller coaster. But now you’re in a responsive, one-person funyak. You hear your own voice, reminding yourself that you can run this rapid. Your heart beat quickens. After a deep breath you paddle hard and focus on the huge waves before you. As you explode through you see your buddies and guides waiting for you at the bottom. A few seconds and three huge waves later you hear the congratulations from the group. You wipe the water from your eyes, orient yourself and euphorically paddle to shore!”
Take it from us that there is nothing like the rush of running a rapid by yourself. The word satisfaction only begins to describe the feeling of accomplishment left when you have successfully navigated a tough piece of whitewater. This is what we do with our lives. This is our love and we want to share it with you. Ace can take you beyond the thrill of whitewater rafting. If you’ve wondered what it would be like to paddle your own kayak, here is your opportunity.
Ace Ocoee funyaking trips are geared toward the enthusiastic whitewater novice. People who have limited whitewater experience but are anxious to sample the thrill of kayaking are perfect. We provide everything you need. Although no experience is required, this is a rigorous full-day activity. All participants must be in reasonably good condition and be at least 12 years old.
