I wanted to take the time to thank you for an AWESOME whitewater trip. My family and I came to Blue Heron on July 21. Originally we had a half day trip with Chad, but when we got to the take out point our family loved it so much we were saying we wish we would of did the whole day trip. You over heard us talking and came up to us and told us we could continue down the river if we hustled. We took the challenge caught up with the full day trip, but in the mean time we had the best time. The views, the rapids and best of all our guide Chad made the trip so much fun..We look forward to rafting with you again in the future. Thank you.

Just wanted to let you know we spoke with Sandy at Rumbling Bald Resort and gave her a glowing review of our experience . We told her that you customized our trip and stayed out later with only 5 of us. She was so pleased to hear of our experience so you may want to follow up with her. Roger will definitely recommend you to the boy scout troop. You are a first rate outfitter and we wish you much success!
I'm not on facebook, twitter, etc., but wanted you all to
know what a great time we had with
Blue Heron yesterday!! The whole staff
is just friendly and professional, and big
KUDOS to Chad for a great ride!!
My husband, Carl, was not at all sure he
wanted to do this, but he had a ball,
and we are both looking forward to
another, longer trip! Never did we feel
unsafe; from the minute we arrived we were in good and caring hands!
And being able to buy the photos is a real plus! Our thanks again
for a great experience!
Hey Fritz and staff/guides/drivers,
I hope you all are very well. I was with the Sunday Big Brother Big
Sister group. My Little Brother Aaron and I were with the Burke County
Aaron and I both want to say thank you for a wonderful opportunity to be
on the river in nature in your part of NC. We do lots of outdoor
activities and this was a great adventure for both of us.
Thank you also for your great generosity with the rates to make this
possible for so many kids in Western North Carolina. Who knows, some day
one of these girls or boys may be back with you as a guide.
Our guide was Wags, an awesome dude. Please give him our thanks especially.
Be well and happy
“The unofficial motto for Blue Heron Whitewater should be, “We give you your moneys worth!” My wife and I rafted the full day trip and we would have paid 100 dollars a person; it was that AWESOME! The guides were professional and fun, the lunch was delicious, and the scenery was spectacular. If you want to go whitewater rafting on the French Broad River, this is the place to take you. Thank you guys for making our trip to Hot Springs unforgettable.” Will and Monica
We had a great time on the white water rafting trip with Blue Heron. It was very easy to schedule. They had everything for us to use to stay warm and mostly dry. Our guide Sandy was awesome. She was full of information. We took the day trip including lunch. Excellent food! We had different levels in our group. Some with no experience and some with experience. We all had a great time. The whole day trip is the best value for money. I would recommend Blue Heron Whitewater to anyone! Julie Anderson
FRENCH BROAD RIVER WHITE WATER RAFTING NEAR ASHEVILLE, NORTH CAROLINA We had a lot of fun with Blue Heron at the french broad river. They are very nice people - I am shure we will do it again. All the best from Austria. Check out their video.
We work with dozens of rafting outfitters throughout North America and have found Blue Heron to be among the very best. Their guides are of the highest caliber with mad paddling skills. More importantly, they go out of their way to insure that guests have an incredible experience on the River. Blue Heron's attention to detail, professionalism and customer service is among the best we have ever seen. Blue Heron is far and away the best outfitter on the French Broad and quite possibly in the entire Southeast Region.

I wanted to thank you guys for providing us an awesome rafting experience on
the French Broad River. 'Wags' was a perfect guide and it was so much fun to raft along with him . We were all ears to his funny stories and the best part was he tried to remember all our names! The surprisingly sunny weather during fall added on with the gracious hospitality offered by all the folks at Blue Heron made our day. Also, hats off to Ciro for capturing the best moments in the best possible way. I would totally recommend Blue Heron to my friends who are planning a trip to NC.
Thanks for everything,
Ram and friends

Sandy and Kim,
On behalf of the gentlemen (I use that term loosely :-) ) from this
past Saturday's French Broad rafting excursion, I would like to take
this opportunity to thank you both for an incredible day of fun. As a
group of old college friends displaced from one another, our weekend
adventures continue to be some of the most important of the year and
cannot tell you how much we appreciate Blue Heron providing us with
everything we could have asked for and more: a gracious staff, an
exhilarating run on the river –including almost being ejected from the
boat on Frank Bells, a relaxed atmosphere, and a great day of
camaraderie. The expression on our faces from the pictures says it
As the only North Carolinian of the bunch, I will certainly pass along
your information to friends here in Charlotte!
All the Best,
"My wife and daughter and I spent an incredible Mother's Day in the company
of Blue Heron Whitewater's rafting team and had a wonderful time! Of course
the weather and landscape did its part as we gazed at Carolina blue skies
and Appalachian Spring greens on the hills above the chocolate brown
fast-moving waters of the French Broad. From the moment we arrived at their
headquarters we were treated warmly and all of our questions and concerns
were answered in a straight up manner. Our guide Sandy's knowledge of the
river in all of its aspects was awesome. She made us feel like a well oiled
team as she guided our little raft through rapids and falls and her
continuous educational rap concerning the geological, historical and natural
history aspects of our trip greatly enhanced our enjoyment of the day. I
highly recommend Blue Heron to anyone that wants to have a memorable trip on
the French Broad."
Hello Sandy, Josh, and Fritz,
Thank you guys so much for a wonderful trip on the French Broad River! We had such a great time in such a beautiful place! I really, really appreciated your attention both to detail and to our needs. We both felt very comfortable thanks to you guys and also got to learn a ton about rafting and about the area.
Thank you again! I've already recommended you to a friend who may be there next year. If we can help you in any way, please let us know.
