White water rafting can be a thrilling adventure for anyone — including people with disabilities or limited mobility. While some people believe that navigating the rapids is too challenging for a disabled individual, we here at Southeastern Expeditions have discovered that such an idea is untrue. If you take a quick trip through our parking area, don’t be surprised to see a few vehicles with disability placards or license plates. You’re also likely to see a wheelchair van or two.

An exhilarating day on the water is great for the mind, body and spirit — for disabled and non-disabled people alike. As long as each individual follows all the precautions given, with a little help from caregivers and our guides, there are few limitations for white water rafting with disabilities.
