Located just minutes from the Hideaway at Laurel Falls,  Southeastern Expeditions is the premier outfitter on the Wild and Scenic Chattooga River.    With over 20 miles of rafting available, the Chattooga River has something for everyone.


The oldest rafting company in the southeast, Southeastern Expeditions opened its doors in 1972 with equipment purchased from Warner Brothers following the filming of the movie Deliverance. Two years later in 1974, the Chattooga River was designated by Compress as one of America's "Wild and Scenic" rivers.
