ZALOO'S CANOE, KAYAK AND TUBES

Zaloo's Canoes was established in 1976 on the edge of the 25-mile stretch of protected and scenic New River in Jefferson, NC. Today, over 40 years later, Zaloo's is still a staple name in this mountain community and beyond. Zaloo's is in the business of making long lasting and fun memories. Zaloo's is engaged in the community and is partnered with several non-profits. Zaloo's Canoes, Kayaks and Tubes was completely renovated in 2019, offering a place of solitude, adventure, and fun. Zaloo's has added a beautiful inside sitting area facing the New River to relax, have a bite to eat, or just sip on coffee or tea and watch the action on the New River. Looking forward to seeing on the New at Zaloo's.
