Need GA whitewater rafting recommendations

A couple years ago I took my wife down the Pacuare River (Class 2-4) in Costa Rica and she loved it, I've never seen her smile so much. Anyways, this Christmas we were in GA and I figured we should come back during the summer some time and take in some of your waterways. Do any of you have any suggestions?

The Nantahala River has class 1-3 rapids and ends in Georgia. Usually you begin in South Carolina. I would suggest the Ocoee river its class 3-5 rapids but classified as a class 4 river.

I have been rafting on the Ocoee River right over the TN several times. The middle Ocoee is fun for the whole family. I want to do the upper (the part the built for the Olympics) as it is a little more intense. There is also a upper+middle that is an all day thing that would be great. You can get funyaks (or whatever) and self-guide on the lower. Very relaxing.

Nantahala is also a lot of fun and the Bryson City area can be a draw for some.

The Chattooga is next on my list though. There is a section there with five IV+ rapids in a row. I think spring is the best (worst?) as far as rapids go as the river is fed by snow melt. This is also where the filmed much of the movie Deliverance, so if you hear banjo music, paddle faster.
