We are Asheville’s largest and only full-service, locally-owned paddle shop and river outfitters.
We offer rentals and shuttles for inner tubing, canoe and kayaking with full access to the French Broad River.
French Broad Outfitters is located at mile marker 72 of the French Broad River. We offer self-guided canoe, solo kayak, tandem kayak, tube, and Stand-Up Paddle board trips on the ancient French Broad River. Our urban float trips are great for families, groups, or individuals and are great for beginners. They vary in length, flowing through several of Asheville’s major attractions, like the Biltmore Estate and the River Arts District.
We rent gear for recreational adventures, in addition to paddle sports.
Our prices are affordable, so anyone can journey into the great outdoors
