Paddle along a scenic portion of the South Fork River. Most of this section of river is protected on both sides making you feel like you're in the mountains - only 25 minutes from Charlotte! Expect to see blue herons, osprey, turtles, and more native fauna and flora.
Guests will meet at The Boathouse and be fitted with all required gear (single kayak, PFD, helmet, paddle). A 10-minute shuttle ride will take you to Spencer Mountain where you’ll launch with 2 experienced guides who will help you navigate this beautiful stretch of the South Fork of the Catawba. Each trip will last approximately 3 hours and will conclude back at your car at The Boathouse.
Experience Level: This kayaking experience is great for those who are comfortable in the water but might not be experts. It is accessible to many skills levels, and may include Class I and Class II rapids in several sections with easy moving, gentle water in between.
