Kayaking on the French Broad has been cancelled due to severe weather. We're expecting heavy rain with possible flooding and debris in the river.
If you registered and paid for the trip, call Lazy Otter Outfitters at 828-756-1386 to receive your refund. We are considering a new October date, but are unsure if we'll be able to reschedule.
Enjoy your weekend and stay dry out there!
Join us for kayaking on the French Broad. No rapids—just 7 miles of relaxing, self-guided paddling fun. You might spot an otter or heron, too!
The Plan: Meet us at Westfeldt Park at 8:30 AM. Matt from Lazy Otter Outfitters will shuttle us and any personal kayaks to the river at their headquarters. We’ll paddle the 7 miles together and end up back at the park. Those who would like to join us afterward can head to Sierra Nevada Brewing for lunch and drinks.
Please note that PFDs are required per state law.
Fees: $23 (bring your own kayak and PFD) OR $50 (includes kayak rental and PFD)
Registration: Call Lazy Otter Outfitters at 828-756-1386 to register. Tell them you are with Charlotte Ski & Snowboard Club to receive the discounted rate. Registering here only notifies us that you're interested in the trip. It does not secure your spot, and there are only 14 spots available.
Cancellations: You’ll receive a full refund if you cancel with at least 24-hours notice or if Lazy Otter Outfitters cancels due to weather. If you don’t like the weather the day of the event but it isn’t canceled by Lazy Otter Outfitters, they offer you a new date.
Trip Leaders: Alisa Weber and Pam Kain are your trip leaders. If you have any questions before registering or on the morning of the float, call Alisa at 704-685-0780 or Pam at 828-866-2070.
