We did the full rafting day with lunch. When we arrived, Sandy asked if we would like to do the ducks (individual kayaks) instead of the raft. I am so glad we did because we had so much fun! We got instructions for the ducks and always had a raft close by to give instructions or help if we needed it. Safety and fun are their priorities. The scenery was beautiful and the rapids were lots of fun. The changing areas and restrooms are private and clean. Lunch was much better than I expected, something for everyone. We learned some local history throughout the day which we enjoyed. They took some great pictures throughout the day for us to purchase. This was the best rafting trip we have done.

We took a half day afternoon trip down the river and had a great time. It rained but we were already wet so it didn't matter. John made it a lot fun. The guides really worked well together and all of them were friendly and helpful. The river was low so we didn't get to stop at the rocks but that's all for safety reasons. We would definitely raft with them again.

Thanks for your review. A rainy day of rafting can be incredibly fun and beautiful. Glad you had a good trip and we hope you'll go down the river with us again sometime. Maybe in the sunshine this time. Thanks!

We decide to do a little adventure on our trip and we were so happy with our rafting trip with Blue Heron. We rafted, jumped off rocks and floated down a class one rapid. Great guides and beautiful scenery. We did a 1/2 day trip...it was perfect!

Everything was top-notch! Experienced and knowledgeable guides taught us what we needed to know. Our guide Kelsey was super. We look forward to going again. If you are hesitant to go because you have not rafted before, don't worry! - they will help you learn and are very safety conscious. A very well-run outfit! And lunch was great!

Thanks for going down the river with us. We really appreciate it. The French Broad is a great first time rafting river. The rapids are fun but not overwhelming and the water is warm (unless you're from south Florida, then the water is cool).

The staff are friendly and knowledgable. We thoroughly enjoyed our trip down the French Broad, learned a lot about the area and had just a marvelous time. Would travel with them again.
