Short paddles leave the Philadelphia Canoe Club at 9:30 a.m. and return by noon. This is a recreational flat water paddle of about two hours on the Schuylkill River, leaving from and returning to Philadelphia Canoe Club.
We may paddle upstream to Manayunk or downstream toward Boathouse Row. Both kayaks and canoes are welcome. Paddlers should have previous experience. Bring a brown bag lunch to enjoy at the club after the paddle. Non-members are welcome and equipment is available upon request. There is a $10 charge for boat/paddle/PFD if needed. Both canoes and recreational kayaks are available. There is also a $5.00 insurance coverage charge to all participants.
This is NOT a training class and some prior paddling experience and/or training is required. You must be able to swim.
We are limited to 8 kayaks but have a few Canoes, so first come first serve-Sorry.
