Paddling is in our pedigree. We have a combined 15 years of raft guiding experience on rivers up and down the east coast. We cut our guiding teeth on the river and spend most of our off days paddling the WNC rivers so we know every beautiful twist and turn that this area has to offer. We craft each one of our paddling trips based on what we really love to do in the area and we always avoid the crowds. Whether it is a scenic float down the French Broad or a heart racing paddle down the thrilling and beautiful Green River, we aim to do it all. We are also able to offer custom private trips and group/corporate outings to fit any paddling dream!
Scenic French Broad Whitewater Paddle:
Enjoy this 5.5 mile scenic and exciting float down the French Broad near our home base in Asheville. We will roll along the majestic French Broad through some exciting class 2 rapids. We twist through the Asheville valley surrounded by views of the spectacular Appalachian mountains on inflatable kayaks. Inflatable kayaks, also known as “duckies,” are a stable and exciting way to see a new river. It’s like a raft that you can paddle yourself! At the conclusion, we will stop briefly on walnut island and explore before taking the scenic drive back to our shop. Once back we will enjoy a beer on us and rehash an incredible trip. It will be the highlight of your trip!
Upper Green River Kayak Trip
Nothing combines all the best that Asheville has to offer for the thrill seeker than a paddling trip on the scenic and breathtaking Upper Green River. Known around the world for the exciting and consistent whitewater that it provides this area, we will paddle the Upper Green (not the infamous “Narrows” that hosts the Green River race). We will paddle the trip on safe and fun inflatable kayaks flowing over the amazing class II and III rapids through the pristine and remote Green River Game Lands. Our guides are all swift water rescue certified and safety is our highest priority. We will begin each trip with an in depth safety lesson and each trip is staffed by two of our highly qualified guides.
