Welcome to Catawba River Expeditions
Our kayaks and canoes are high-end and user-friendly even for beginners, and there's no better way to experience the waters of the Charlotte/Rock Hill area! Our tubes are high-quality, commercial-grade tubes with double chambers to maximize your comfort and safety.  

We are the original and longest-running outfitter on the Catawba River in this area, and are proud to say we were paddling the Catawba before paddling was cool.
