We rented a canoe and transport from French Broad outfitters. They were courteous and informative. The equipment was in good to excellent condition we will definitely use this company again!

Used the shuttle service for the 12 mile trip. Registration and online payment went smoothly. Exceptional website. On time and good explanation of the river. This was my first time on the French Broad. Professional operation.

All the folks at French Broad Outfitters made our kayak trip just great. Everything ran right on time and was just as we expected. People were super nice and helpful. I liked that we parked at the end and they shuttled us up to the starting point, so there was no waiting for transportation at the end. Halfway stop at their midway location was perfect for lunch and bathroom break. Will do this trip again. Thanks!

It was a beautiful day to spend on the river. We paddled leisurely down, at our own pace and enjoyed the awesome weather, the scenery and the company of our fellow travelers.
