Welcome to Lazy Otter Outfitters!

 

There are lots of places to tube, canoe, kayak and SUP in western North Carolina. Why visit Lazy Otter in Henderson County? 
  • Leave the crowds behind! We're the only outfitter on the French Broad in Henderson County, and we'll never turn the river into an elbow-to-elbow traffic jam.
  • Deep water! Ever had to spend your day on the water scooting rather than floating? Even in dry conditions, our stretch of the French Broad has plenty of water to float on.
  • Easy and convenient! We're right on the river, just outside Hendersonville and minutes from Brevard and Asheville. Our shuttle rides are quick and we're close to many other fun activities!
  • Great value! Our Adventure Tubing trips are the best deal in the region, including a paddle and a spare tube for the group for coolers or other luggage. Our paddle trips use comfortable, high-quality boats and you'll get great personal service.
  • Beautiful scenery! The French Broad in Henderson County rolls through farm land and conservation easements rather than highways and industrial sites. Try our Horse Shoe Bend float for a completely road-free adventure!
