More hands-on than a chartered cruise and less hazardous than a hammerhead-shark rodeo, our guided floats offer an enticing alternative to customary modes of nautical exploration. Steer clear of boredom and danger when you paddle with our splash-tested specialists. We offer a range of guided floats to choose from. (Not interested in a guided float? Be sure to check out our rentals!)
2013 dates are coming soon!
RESERVATIONS ARE REQUIRED. CALL US AT 717-503-0066 TO RESERVE YOUR FLOAT.

Working out should be fun, and nothing is more fun than an active kayak paddle with a group of energetic and enthusiastic people. Join us twice a month for an aerobic and calorie-burning kayak special to get out and enjoy the beauty of the Susquehanna. You’ll get a great workout with a pre-paddle warm up, followed by some splash and dash in the boats. Beginners and novices welcome!
Our paddles aren’t just for people, they’re for pooches too! If you and your pup would enjoy an evening on the water together, sign up for this float before it fills up. (Spots are going fast!) All pooches are welcomed, but we prefer that growlers and biters and generally unfriendly dogs stay home. After all, it’s a Pooch Paddle Party, not just a Pooch Paddle.
Join us for a Full-Moon-on-the-Water Adventure!! We will meet at a convenient site and depart for a paddle amid the moon and stars... and maybe some night creatures... yikes! We'll stop along the way for some snacks. BYOR (bring your own refreshments....NO GLASS :)
Get out on the river before the world wakes up and the hustle and bustle of your day begins.

Pennsylvania's water trails are fed by the spring runoff from the ancient Appalachian Mountains and meander peacefully through pastoral Pennsylvania farmlands. In the Spring, our local creeks are home to wildlife as diverse as the landscapes. Immerse yourself in the awakening of Spring's wildflowers, bustling birdlife, and the serenity of a secluded creek at sunset. Explore with a local expert or float on your own.
From the headwaters near Swatara Gap State Park, ablaze with wildflowers and forests of rhododendrons, to the mouth of the creek in the shadows of the world (in)famous Three Mile Island, the "Swattie" is one awesome creek that you truly will enjoy. The Swattie flows so close to Hersheypark that you can almost hear the screams from the Sooperdooperlooper, yet it's so protected that you feel like you are in a world of your own. Birdlife and wildlife are abundant along most of the creek. Clear water and gentle currents make this a perfect float to end your day.

Anybody can paddle this creek but not everybody can pronounce its name. Conodoguinet comes from an Indian word meaning a long way with many bends. The Conodoguinet, hidden in its valley, feels a world away. It's easy paddling, with a wide channel. The shallow water is perfect for beginners or paddlers with children, and the wildlife on this trip is remarkable. You can enjoy the creek's ribbon of greenery, alive with herons, kingfishers, and other streamside creatures. Osprey and eagles are frequently seen over the stream.

During the Revolutionary War, when the British soldiers crossed this creek in their white breeches or washed them in the creek, the breeches became stained from the yellow tint of the water. Hence the name, "Yellow Breeches." Designated a Pennsylvania Scenic River in 1992, the Breeches is famous for its trout fishing opportunities. The intermittent riffles and sharp bends on the Breeches make it a little more challenging for beginning paddlers, but the incredible beauty of this unusually clear high-quality creek puts it high on almost everyone's list of MUST-PADDLE creeks.
