Paddling in Western North Carolina is not just about bombing off waterfalls and sneaking lines on steep creek rapids and Class III+ whitewater. Our region offers some of the best casual recreational paddling in the country. We're surrounded by gorgeous mountain lakes and tame rivers aren't hard to find. Whether you're looking for a fishing adventure via canoe/kayak, birding on the Little Tennessee, Nantahala Lake day touring or doing a multi-day paddle expedition on Lake Jocassee or Lake Fontana, Outdoor 76 is here to meet your paddling needs.
Outdoor 76 has a full fleet of rental canoes and kayaks from Ocean Kayak and Old Town. We offer 3-person canoes, single decked kayaks, single Sit-on-Top and Tandem Sit-on-Top Kayaks as well as SUP's. Our boats are on a first come first serve basis. We highly encourage reservations for any rental period.
All rentals rates are based on customer pick-up and return. Customers MUST be able to load and transport boats themselves. In some cases, arrangements for delivery and pick-up can be made.
Feel free to contact us for rates and availability.
