About Headwaters Outfitters Outdoor Adventures
The canoeing and kayaking river trips can last from 3 hours and up to a two day canoe camping trip. You may also choose to cool off with a lazy float down the French Broad on our tubing river trip. All of our trips including the canoeing and kayaking river trips are self-guided with the exception of our seasonal special events. Our fly fishing program offers guided fly fishing trips in Western North Carolina! Our fly shop has everything you need to have a successful day on the water. Our licensed NC fly fishing guides can teach you to cast. They can lead you on a guided fly fishing trip for trout or smallmouth, or help you choose flies that will increase your success on our local mountain streams. Our fly-fishing school is fun for the whole family! Headwaters Outfitters also carries a great selection of canoes and kayaks for sale in our RIVER SHOP. Test paddle canoes by Old Town, Mad River & We-no-nah. We have kayaks by Jackson Kayak, Wilderness Systems and Perception. At our River Shop, the north and west forks meet forming the French Broad River. This makes it an excellent location to test paddle canoes or kayaks. Headwaters Outfitters is conveniently located just outside of Brevard NC, between Asheville and Highlands, NC. It is an easy one day trip from Charlotte, Greenville, or Raleigh, and a great weekend getaway from Atlanta. Regardless of where you are coming from, Transylvania County has lots to offer those looking for a mountain river adventure. When planning your next vacation to the mountains of North Carolina, join us for an exciting canoeing and kayaking river trips adventure. For a quick weekend getaway, or just something fun to do outdoors, pack a picnic lunch, bring your fishing rod and gather your friends and family.

We paddled the French Broad River to the Hannah Ford take out point. It was a wonderful 3 hour paddle. The small Class 1 rapids were fun and the scenery was majestic. Jason took us to our put in point and picked us up at the take out. He was very informative and we enjoyed
