     Kayak, canoe, raft or tube the Delaware River 200 miles from Hancock, New York to Trenton, New Jersey!

   
On any summer day many thousands of canoeists, kayakers and other boaters can be found plunging through the rapids or lazing along the eddies of the beautiful Delaware River.  Some segments of the river offer a near-wilderness experience, yet are with easy reach of the cities and suburbs of the Mid-Atlantic region.  The Delaware is surely among the most popular rivers for recreational boating in the United States.

     There are more than 40 public access points for boaters on the Delaware. A dozen outfitters will provide the craft of your choice -- kayak, canoe, raft, or tube -- and shuttle you to and from your car.  Public and private campsites along the way offer a place to rest for the night and enjoy the company of fellow river travelers. 

     A river trip typically takes paddlers through calm "eddies" punctuated by exciting Class I and II rapids.   The riverbanks everywhere are clothed in hardwood forest.  Paddlers are often treated to wildlife sightings: abundant eagles, waterfowl, beaver, deer and black bear.   

     A best-seller in its first editions (formerly Canoeing the Delaware River), this revision by author Gary Letcher is the definitive guidebook to  the Delaware River. All-new and updated for novices, experts, and armchair adventurers alike.  Like having a personal guide on board -- Amazon.com

     Happy paddling, and we'll see you on the River!
