They went out of their way to add the six of us to their schedule and gave us a private guide and raft on the French Broad River. Fritz let us use, free of charge, a waterproof digital camera. When we returned she downloaded all the photos onto a DVD for us, ALL FREE OF CHARGE! The views were beautiful, Fritz did most of the paddling, although we all did a bit. We got to stop halfway down for snacks and water. All in all it was a truly wonderful experience.

Great experience riding a raft on a fun river. Blue Her on staff was fun, playful, knew their stuff and went out of their way to make this an enjoyable and entertaining experience. Will do this one again.

We found this to be a fantastic place for rafting on the French Broad. Our guide Sam was a lot of fun and was very knowledgeable. The facility was very clean, the staff very professional.

My husband and I had never whitewater rafted before so we were both a bit nervous. After arriving to Blue Heron, all our apprehension turned to excitement! They had EVERYTHING you might need or want for a fun day on the river. From water shoes to sunscreen, they offered it all!. We were extra lucky to have gotten the main guide, Wags, as our rafting guide for the half day trip. We had a blast jumping off the rock, wading in the river and enjoying a delicious lunch on the river bank. We would totally go back and do it again. When we returned we were able to take showers and change into dry clothes in a clean facility. Thank you for an awesome adventure!!!! 5 Stars !!!!
