Paddle along the scenic Catawba River to enjoy one of the more relaxing sides to the USNWC. Flatwater kayaking allows guests to explore the region’s natural environment, wildlife, and ecology, while tandem kayaking provides the opportunity to paddle down the river with a friend or family member in the boat. Stand-Up Paddle Boarding (SUP) is also available on the Catawba River, combining surfing and paddling into an activity that is adaptable for all ages and skill levels.

No previous experience is required. All flatwater kayaking and stand-up paddle boarding gear (boat, PFD and paddle) is provided with pass purchase, but guests with their own gear are welcome to utilize to the flatwater put-in.
