“guiding on the French Broad River for over 25 years”
Blue Heron Whitewater is co-owned by three partners who have been guiding on the French Broad River in North Carolina for over 25 years each. Though we all have experience on other rivers and with other occupations, this locally owned North Carolina Whitewater Rafting Company calls The French Broad River our home river, and our passion is sharing the beauty and history of the French Broad River with our guests. So that you can have the best trip possible, we have invested in a fleet of boats, both rafts and ducks that allow us to help you maximize your fun on the river. Your guides are experienced and talented people. They are friends and coworkers who have entered and enriched our lives over the years – an experienced group who work with us to execute our dream of sharing the fun and beauty of the French Broad River with our guests.
Really fun day out on our road trip! After being in a car for so long and spending most of our time eating or shopping it was nice to take a physical challenge. Although if you are a whitewater rafting enthusiast, note that this is a nice day on the river with a couple of fun rapids. This is not a challenging river by any means and most of the people in your group will likely be novices. I will say that the people at Blue Heron are very good at their jobs. They are all about safety and are very capable on the river. We hit a few rough patches and some people in the boat were a bit nervous and our guides maneuvered us right out with ease. Also the French Broad River is a warm river so it wasn't cold like most rapid rivers which makes for nice swimming. There is also a lot of history along the French Broad that our guides shared with us. We took the half day trip which was grade 2&3 rapids, I hear the full day trip will give you a grade 4 rapid, which still is family friendly. Im very happy we chose Blue Heron for our excursion!
