Blue Heron Adventures is the recreation arm of Catawba Riverkeeper, the local nonprofit protecting our waterways.
You can kayak, canoe, standup paddleboard, raft, hike, and more with Blue Heron Adventures! We offer self-guided kayak rentals, guided tours, and lessons. Headquartered in McAdenville, NC near Charlotte.
Our mission is to provide engaging outdoor experiences within the Catawba River Basin that inspire our guests to protect our waterways.
Proceeds from Blue Heron Adventures go directly to Catawba Riverkeeper's mission to preserve, protect, and restore our lakes and streams. When you rent a kayak or book a tour, know that you are supporting education programs for kids and adults, water quality monitoring, science-based advocacy, and cleanups.
Catawba Riverkeeper preserves, protects, and restores the waters of the Catawba-Wateree River Basin for all through education, advocacy, and engagement.
