Section 9, from Barnard to Hot Springs, offers scenery and white water challenges, from Class II all the way to Class V. For wildlife lovers, one of the draws for rafting with the Hot Springs Rafting Company is that they like to get in the French Broad River earlier than the other rafting companies. This allows for greater possibilities of seeing riverside wildlife. Rodney, of the Hot Springs Rafting Company, says one of his favorite animal sightings he encounters are bald eagles which can be regularly spotted.

“Only rafting place that cared to take a last minute trip of 4 people. Our guide Brian was awesome. Located a little further from Asheville than the big rafting places, but they raft the same section 9 plus the building is located downtown Hot Springs so other things to do. They also offer tubing.  Highly recommend.” – William M.

“What a fun and exciting experience!  Our guide on the river, James P, entertained us with stories of his rafting experiences here and around the US. His partner, Brian, made us laugh with lots of corny jokes on the van as we rode to the river. We also got excellent instruction before and during the ride. I highly recommend coming here!”  – Theresa H.
