Canoe ~ Kayak ~ SUP ~ Raft ~ Rescue


The keystone state is the paddling state. In PA there are more ways to paddle than there are places to boof on the Upper Yough. Find the native rhythm of our state canoeing and kayaking rivers and lakes like the Nockamixon. A beginner but you don’t want a baby of a river? Enjoy the challenge of Class III rapids. Raft down the Lehigh River Gorge, swoll with white knuckle white water adventure. You can SUP, you can fish, you can learn swiftwater rescue, and you can find opportunities for all under adaptive paddling. Listen to the water calling: there is a paddle craft, a river, and an adventure company for you in Pennsylvania. Get paddling!
