Are you looking to spend a couple of hours soaking in the sun and viewing the sights? Our scenic float trip is perfect if you have small children or would rather avoid the more rigorous exercise. Are you hoping for a full day of paddling while traversing the rapids for a unique experience? Our full-day rafting trip with lunch trip might be just the thing for you to enjoy.

So Much Fun for the WHOLE Family!

Even children can join in! Just keep in mind that everyone in the raft must participate, so our different trips have different age minimums. French Broad River rafting is an excellent way to bond with loved ones because everyone must work together to steer the raft. What's more, getting soaked always brings on the laughs, and what better way to spend time with family than to laugh together? We supply all of the gear that's necessary for an enjoyable trip, so all you'll need to bring is a change of clothes, a towel, and extra layers if you'll be coming in the spring or fall. Check out our "What to Bring" page for more information.
