There is year-round excitement in the centre of Phenix City with one of America's top outfitters providing whitewater rafting. The warm water, Southern climate and consistent release of water from upstream dams allows year-round whitewater adventure, most months without special clothing. The course was specially designed for adventure seekers and provides Class I to Class IV rapids. Whitewater Express, one of the top whitewater companies in the world, provides rafting adventures along the longest urban whitewater course.
In July 2014, Whitewater Express opened the new Chattahoochee Outdoor Academy. This has been a fabulous addition to Phenix City and is known regionally as the training academy for outdoor water activities. The shop teaches kayak lessons, fishing lessons, and paddleboarding, and the outdoor post is centrally located, allowing ease when travelling back to your hotel after a long day of rafting or training.
