Kayaking changing to a Rafting Trip

  • Jun 15, 2013 · 10:30 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

The details of this event are essentially staying the same but due to the high water levels Adventure Sports will not allow kayaks on the river but they will allow rafts. The price is pretty much the same. We will have 4 to 5 people per raft which will make paddling a lot easier. If for any reason you would rather not go rafting instead please change your RSVP. It is still going to be a great day!

Hi Everyone,

It's my birthday weekend! What better way to celebrate than to spend the day kayaking on the Delaware!! This part of the river isn't very rough but still fun and relaxing with only class 1 rapids.

The trip: We will be taking the Bushkill Launch to Smithfield Beach. This is a scenic 10 mile trip with an estimated paddle time of 3.5 hrs. without stopping. I figured we can stop at a campsite for lunch which would add about an hour to the trip time!

Rental prices for single or two-person kayaks depend on the # of people going.

1 - 9 people: $46.00

10 - 19: $38.00

20 +: $34.00

*THE MORE PEOPLE THAT RSVP, THE BETTER THE RATE.

Price Includes: kayak, paddle, life jacket, river maps, and FREE shuttle transportation for people, luggage, and boats.

What to bring/Wear:

- Plenty of Water! I'd say at least two bottles per person.

- packed lunch in plastic zip locked bags.

- trash bag, napkins etc.

- Sunscreen/sun protection (hat, sunglasses,etc.)

- appropriate clothing for the weather

- dry change of clothing (You will get wet)!

- sneakers or river shoes (your feet will get wet)

- towels

- camera/binoculars (I usually keep mine in a ziplock when I am not using it just in case.)

Cancellation: The event will be cancelled if there is a steady rain. Please let me know if you are going to cancel due to weather or other circumstances at least 48hrs. before the trip. Once we are on the water, there are no refunds.

We meet at: Adventure Sports - GPS Address - Route 209 & County Bridge Road, East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania 18301

Phone:[masked] Website: www.adventuresport.com

Directions: From the East (NYC and NJ) - Take I-80 West into Pennsylvania. Get off Exit #309 (Marshalls Creek). You can only go one way (209 North). They are approximately 2 miles on the left. Please check the website for more directions & further information.

*IMPORTANT INFO.* Please try to be there at least 15 min. early to fill out paperwork (wavier form), pay, etc. **Please bring enough cash for the $46.00 Kayak Rental. We will know the actual price closer to the event.** I will be collecting the money and wavier forms since we must pay as a group. To make it easier and faster, you can download the waiver form from the website: http://www.adventuresport.com/waiver.php

*After we meet at Adventure Sports to pay we will then take a 10 min. drive to Smithfield Park Beach where we leave our cars. There is a $10.00 parking fee. We cannot leave our cars at Adventure Sports. I would recommend carpooling to make it more affordable. If you see or know anyone in your area you'd be interested in car pooling with, please don't hesitate to contact them (via-email).There will be toilet facilities at both starting & ending points.

*If everything goes smoothly we should be on the river around 11:30am and back around 4:30/5:00pm. We need to be off the water no later than 6pm.

DISCLAIMER: Your attendance on this trip is strictly voluntary and you assume full responsibility of your own safety. By RSVPing “Yes” and attending this meetup you agree not to hold me or any other member of this group liable for any accidents or injuries.

Feel free to text or message me with any questions![masked]

I can't wait to get on the water!!

      I will ask when I call to make the reservation. I don't see why not. I don't know if they will drive you back to your car though.

      It's more likely they'll haul the kayak to the launch point.
