Blue Heron Whitewater Covid 19 Information:

If you have tested positive for COVID-19 or been in contact with someone who has tested positive do not come rafting until you have been medically cleared. If you or someone in your party has COVID-19 symptoms do not come rafting.

Please call 828-450-4663 to make reservations for trips. Our online reservation system is not designed for pandemic times, so the availability for online reservations is limited.

We are a small company and our capacity is very limited due to  procedures to manage COVID-19 risks. Please know we are doing the best we can to help folks get out on the river and keep our business afloat (pun intended!). This is challenging! And we know times are challenging for you too.

Minimum to book a trip is 3. (2 people can raft but will need to pay for 3)

Until further notice lunch will not be served on any trip.

We are a guest focused company. Running trips in the time of COVID-19 challenges almost every part of how we like to run our trips and manage our business. Getting out on the river is still fun! We ask that all parties come with a spirit of cooperation, ready to help make this work for everyone.

Protocols we have in place are in the interest of protecting our staff, ourselves, and our guests (you!), and adapting to comply with state and local health department mandates. Protocols are reviewed regularly.

At this time:

Every person will be required to wear a mask/face covering at all times, with the exception of the actual time on the water. Please bring your own mask.

Upon arrival, please remain close to your vehicle until greeted by a staff person who will assist with the check-in process. If you can print and fill out your waivers ahead of time that would be helpful.

All  parties will be required to respect 6 feet of social distancing around other persons/parties and our guides and staff. Please be ready to stay together and follow directions.

We have portable toilets and private outdoor areas for changing. Outdoor hand washing stations and sanitizer are available. Our indoor restroom/changing/shower areas will remain closed.

We are not mixing groups in rafts.

In order to maintain physical distancing in the rafts we are having a maximum of 4 guests plus a guide in each raft. If your group has more then 4 people you will be in more than 1 raft. We are doing this to protect ourselves as guides and you!
