Details

Join us on the southern branch of the Great Egg Harbor River, a 7+ mile trip. Notice the 10 am start time.

We will start at the Weymouth Furnace Park and head down the Great Egg Harbor River. We will cross Lake Lenape and paddle around to the boathouse and beach area.

This is a good trip for intermediate paddlers, not recommended for new folks due to debris, hazards and current water height. Guests are welcome! This is typically a 4 hour paddle trip, approximately 7 miles.

The river is winding and running high. There haven't been many portages on this section of the river, but we may need to cut down debris. Always strainers on the Egg, so life jackets are a must.

There is usually beautiful flora and fauna along the way and historic sites to be seen. We will be stopping along the way for lunch and dipping in your toes.

REQUIREMENTS:
-water
-sunscreen
-hat
-lunch
-pfd (life jacket) -- this is mandatory!
-change of clothes
-hand sanitizer or wipes
-face mask (for when not on the water)
-personal pen for signing in
-a flexible approach to the new normal!
