Are you in the mood to do a fun and exciting activity that is great for toning your muscles, exercising during vacation, and spending time in the great outdoors? Well, look no further! You may not be the most avid hiker or interested in hopping on a mountain bike — but that’s okay. We have a better idea in mind. Check out Flatwater Kayaking and Stand-up Paddleboarding at the Whitewater Center in North Carolina!
On the Water Adventures
Kayaking and paddleboarding on flat water is a great way to see the sights, bond with your loved ones, become a part of nature, and simply relax during your outdoor-centric vacation. Not only is this a great workout for your arms, shoulders, and core, but you will be able to exercise, tone your body, AND enjoy yourself without breaking a sweat.
Head out on the Catawba River and Long Creek to burn some calories and paddle your way through the low-hanging branches, bright blue open water, and shaded areas of the bustling pond. Plus, there are various options for you to choose from that can suit your skill and fitness level.
Kayak and Stand-Up Paddleboarding
We recommend doing the flatwater kayaking and SUP as a tandem or solo rider if you are interested in an easier option. This is the best choice for young children who need to go on the water with an adult and be under constant supervision.
If you would rather try something harder that is going to challenge your entire body and mind, stand-up paddleboarding could be the better option. Try the flatwater SUP for a more moderate exercise choice on the soft and serene water in North Carolina.
If you are planning on staying for an entire day at the Whitewater Center, purchasing a day pass is the way to go. After spending a relaxing morning out on the water, you can also take part in the ropes course high above the ground, go ice skating during the winter months, try yoga to help calm your spirits, fly high through the zipline course, go climbing on one of the rock slabs, or get your heart pumping with mountain biking or trail running.
A day pass is just $75 for adults and $65 for kids, whereas a single activity pass for stand up paddleboarding is only $35. For those who frequently vacation to North Carolina, an annual pass is just $250 for adults and $200 for children.
