We had a really great time on the 7-mile float trip. We booked two kayaks for a 10am start. We got views of the Biltmore and the Biltmore Inn, as well as plenty of wildlife. The paddling is pretty easy, as you're going with the current, and there's only a few places with rapids. The guide staff at AOC give you a pretty clear list of instructions before you go out. The single kayaks are the sit-on-top kind, so bring sunscreen for your legs. If it's a warm day, we would definitely suggest starting at 10am, as it can get rather warm on the river. We took a little over 2 hours to complete the trip, but you could certainly go more slowly if you wanted to. FYI, on this section of river there's no place for you to stop and get out along the banks since it runs through private property. Wait until you're done for a picnic or be ready to eat a snack on your boat.
