What you'll do

We will meet at the river where we will load up into a high quality commercial raft. This is a leisure float through a scenic portion of the French Broad River. The river is 210 miles long and we are closer to the head waters of the river. This trip is 6.8 miles. This section of river will give us the best chance to see wildlife - Egrets, Herons, Swallows, River Otters, and Ducks are all likely. Bring your binoculars! This section will float us past the historic Biltmore estate with great photo opportunities. This is a very scenic section of the river. There a couple of fun class 1 rapids too! You will stay dry on this trip while seeing beautiful scenery that you can anly experience from a boat. We will end the river trip in West Asheville. Leave your car at Hominy Creek (trip end spot) and take an Uber or Lyft to Bent Creek River Park to meet your guide.

Cody

I am a former Outward Bound wilderness instructor. I have 15 years of trip leading experience and have lived in Asheville since the mid 90's. I have instructed white water canoeing and guided commercial raft trips in Colorado. I have rafted, canoed and tubed the rivers of NC since the 90's. I know how great the river is and I am excited to share it with you. Your other host is Chad Colwell. Boating and water sports have been a continual part of his life since his teenage years as a Boy Scout. He worked as a lifeguard and boating instructor which included swimming, canoeing, rowing and small boat sailing. He has a small boat sailing certification through the American Sailing Association (ASA) and has canoed and rafted most sections of the French Broad River.

Where you'll be

A scenic float that is guided all the way. Just sit back and relax as we paddle you down the river. Soak on the views as we pass by the Biltmore Estate.
