Recipe for a perfect day: Floating down an ancient river, cooling your toes in the water, laughing with good friends... all within reach of award-winning breweries serving up fresh craft beverages and tasty treats. We start by meeting near Asheville's River Arts District, where your canoeing gear and friendly guide await. Canoe on a navigable but adventurous section of the French Broad River, where one of the oldest rivers on the planet passes by some of the best spots in "Beer City USA." We'll paddle up to a variety of Asheville's best breweries, eateries, funky riverside bars, and wading pools. Each trip will vary based on the weather, what is open, and what the folks in your group enjoy most. An example itinerary may include beers at Wedge Brewery, lunch at 12 Bones Smokehouse and Brewery, and finishing at New Belgium Brewery. Non-drinkers will have plenty of sight-seeing options nearby as well. Depending on the time of year, we may see otters, beavers, herons, friendly ducks, and colorful fish.
I'm Will, and I was born and raised in Asheville and have been canoeing on the French Broad River and its tributaries for as long as I can remember. All I want to do is share the experience of this natural beauty with others! Along with my wife Marian and a group of lifelong friends, we've put together a river-loving team of guides! We're all well-versed in river safety and know all the nearest put-ins and take-outs. Most importantly, we love to have fun! If you love adventure, delicious craft beer, and great views of Asheville, wildlife, and the wonderful mountains, this is it!

We are heading down the river! We'll float through the River Arts District and finish near downtown. Along the way we stop at breweries/bars, eateries, and swimming holes. Each trip's stops will vary based on a variety of factors. After the trip is complete, take your time at the final brewery and shuttle back to your vehicle using your preferred transportation provider (e.g. Uber).
