Flowing from the Devil's Courthouse on the Blue Ridge Parkway, the river flows to Asheville, NC before turning north and west toward Marshall, NC, Hot Springs, NC and Tennessee. Water levels vary throughout the season so we have a variety of boats for you to choose from. This variety of boat sizes helps insure your trip will be fun whatever the river level. At the most common water levels we can offer you the choice of different sizes of raft as well as ducks (inflatable kayaks). Depending on the water level, ducks or self-guided rafts are a great option for folks who are looking to get little more adventure out of their North Carolina rafting trip. You can always choose to go in a raft with a guide.

Whitewater rafting in North Carolina The French Broad River is a great NC rafting river. While not too wild for the novice, the river has plenty to offer the experienced rafter, particularly if they choose to paddle a duck. The rapids range from class I to III on the half-day white water rafting trips, and from class I-IV on the full day NC rafting trip. These are small to medium sized rapids on the class I to VI classification scale. The white water rapids on the French Broad River are considered drop-pool type rapids. Typically the rapids consists of a drop with a calmer pool at the bottom of the rapid. The float trip stretch of the French Broad River has beautiful scenery, a few riffles, and plenty of opportunity for swimming and floating. The float trip is a great way for families with small children (minimum age is 4 for the float trip) to enjoy some time together on a fantastic NC river. Or if you just want to have a relaxing and scenic float, the French Broad River float trip offers fantastic mountain scenery, fascinating history, and lots of splashing fun. North Carolina rafting is blessed with a long whitewater rafting season. Here in the Southern Appalachians we run white water rafting trips and calm water float trips from mid-March to early November. And unlike the cold water of other rivers in Western North Carolina, the French Broad River is cool and inviting. A NC rafting trip on the French Broad River is a complete river trip. More than a river ride, rafting North Carolina's French Broad River with Blue Heron Whitewater offers a fantastic combination of white water rapids, swimming holes, beautiful scenery, history and wildlife.
