We offer self-guided canoe, kayak, tandem kayak, tube, and stand up paddleboard trips on the ancient French Broad River. Our urban float trips are great for families, groups, or individuals, and are great for beginners. Whether you are a local, visiting, glamping, hiking, checking out the famous drum circleSierra Nevada Brewery, or simply driving the Blue Ridge Parkway, our trips are for you. Our float trips vary in length, flowing through several of Asheville’s major attractions, like the Biltmore Estate and the River Arts District.

We also rent gear for recreational adventures, in addition to paddle sports.
Our prices are affordable.
