On Friday, I took my 9 year old daughter on a trip with the local YMCA-Guides with Blue Heron on the French Broad. I have some experience on the New and Gauley as well as canoeing on the Chatooga with Outward Bound and NOC. I think Class VI in West Virginia and NOC do a great job at all levels, and I have really enjoyed every experience on a river. Blue Heron is their equal, and this was a first class trip all the way.
Eric, our lead guide, made sure to make the ride fun for all of us, even those who have been on bigger water, and was really excellent at making the three children in the raft feel like part of the team.
It's a fun trip, and well worth the money. Thanks, Blue Heron.
