Get off work, jump in a kayak, and paddle your way around City Island or to the cluster of islands just up river. No shuttle, no time constraints, no waiting. It can be quite a workout paddling upstream. But isn’t that what you want? (You must have paddling experience to take advantage of our hourly rentals.)
This easy access float is perfect for beginners and a great introduction for children to the magic of the river. Join other friendly paddlers on our cool shuttle bus as we drive you from City Island to West Fairview, at the mouth of Conodoguinet Creek. You can paddle upstream in the creek or head for the open waters of the Susquehanna River. The panoramic views will take your breath away. Enjoy a gentle float back with the gentle currents. Use the time to explore the river’s many hidden gems, such as the sights and sounds of night herons, cormorants, and other bird life; sandy secluded islands where you can take a quick dip or collect river seashells; and wild creatures from beavers to bald eagles - all within the city limits of Harrisburg! This trip is rated tranquil – no experience needed.
Want more wildlife, more secluded lush river islands, more challenging riffles? Our 7-mile float is all that and more. We’ll shuttle you from City Island to historic Fort Hunter Park, where you can shove off with the Susquehanna Statue of Liberty in the background framed by the world famous Susquehanna Water Gap. You’ll be rewarded with a wildlife experience you’ll never forget… beaver dams, mink, bald eagles, and herons make their homes here, including the largest nesting island for wading birds in Pennsylvania. Cruise under the longest stone arch railroad bridge in the world and feel the excitement of the swift riffles above and below the bridge. Nothing death-defying, just fun! This trip is rated moderate but still appropriate for ambitious beginners.
Want to play more? Why not hop on one of our hybrid trail bikes and take a spin on the scenic Riverfront Parkway and Capitol Area Greenbelt? There’s so much to see and do you won’t want to stop. (All rentals include helmets.)
ASK about our bicycle delivery service: Can’t make it to City Island to pick up your rental bikes? We can deliver them to your doorstep! We’ll also pick them up when you’re done. Believe it or not, we can also pick you up, too, and shuttle you to your destination at the start or end of your ride. Our delivery service has an 8-bike minimum and is available for full-day rentals only.
