“Had a great time”
Reviewed 19 August 2014

This is not the first time we have floated down the river with TRA. It's inexpensive and fun. Clean tubes, clean facilities. NICE people. The water is cold. No matter what time of year. We tube every time we go. Maybe one day we will do the fun-yaks for the 8 mile trip. The tubing is an hour for the short run, 2 for the longer one. Just remember if the water is running fast it will be shorter. Get the lady of the establishment talking and be totally entertained.
TIP: Don't take your keys with you, give them to the nice lady so you don't lose them in the water.

“Fun and relaxing! ”
Reviewed 9 August 2014 via mobile

We were greeted by Max the dog and he even took a ride on the bus with us! Every one loads up on the bus and one of the staff drives to the drop off point of the river. He was very Informative. He told us which side to stay on when we seen the different color markers. When u see the white ball marker u stay to the right and if u are going to the Tennessee pick up point and u see the yellow ball marker u stay on the left. Look for the American Flag with the fish on it. Pretty cool u can say u kayaked from Georgia to Tennessee! The views are definitely better in Georgia than Tennessee. We chose to kayak because we like to have drinks/snacks and it was a great choice. U can determine how fast or slow u would like to go down the river as opposed to tubing unless u request a paddle. U can even stop back at the adventure building and use their facilities if need be and then u can be back on your way. We seen some car parts on the side of the river from cars that have fallen off from above (tragic but cool at same time). The water temperature was between 50-60 degrees. Hope this helps!

“Terrific Tubing on the Toccoa River - Blue Ridge Mntns. GA”
Reviewed 23 July 2014

This was our 3rd time on the Toccoa but first time with TRA.
Great float!
We did the double tube which took about an hour or so and our teenage kids did the 3 mile trip which took a little more than 2 hours.
The scenery is beautiful and the water is peaceful and relaxing. The river was not crowded. You will come across some flowing areas and then some where you can just relax and enjoy the ride. They even give you paddles to help when necessary. There are restrooms and changing rooms on site.
We enjoyed lunch at Pearly Gates - staff was friendly, food was good and prices reasonable. Cash or Check only though - no credit cards. ATM on site.
Will definitely be back again -- thinking about Kayaking next time!

“Tubing trip”
Reviewed 9 July 2014

We decided to use them for a short tubing trip. We had to wait in line to get a ticket, but it was a holiday weekend. We took a 1 1/2 hour tubing trip. Had to wait again for a shuttle bus to pick us up to take us up river. Would have been ok, except the bus loading before us had problems with getting kayaks loaded and took a long time. We were there about an hour before getting loaded to go. The tubes were good and had a good time on the river once we got started. My companion is not a water person and didn't really enjoy the easy going flow of the river. I noticed while we were waiting that they disinfected the tubes when they came back in, so thought that was good. It was all ok.

“Recommend choosing an option with a paddle”
Reviewed 5 July 2014

Toccoa River Adventures did a great job handling our large family group. We found the river to be VERy slow. Those of us that had chosen kayaks had a great ride. Those in tubes had a very, very slow time of it. It was even a bit slow for the five year-old in the group. Definitely a relaxing ride, but perhaps a bit too relaxing without a paddle to give you a bit of momentum.
