American Canoe-PA Kayakin the Upper Yough

In 1976, Wilderness Voyageurs (WV), a Martin family founded and operated company, opened a kayaking school in Ohiopyle, PA. Though WV was the first place, today it’s not the only place to learn kayaking on the Youghiogheny. You can learn how to nail your roll with Ohiopyle Trading Post, or enjoy the more leisurely experience of being guided in small groups of rec kayaks along the Middle with Laurel Highlands. In other places in PA, such as the Lehigh River, you can get the basics over a day or two, or schedule for more advanced instruction. You can enjoy the various water in state parks in various kayaks—skirted, inflated, rec, sit-on-top, and pedal-drive. From Ohiopyle to the Nockamixon, find the right place and stop thinking about it and start kayaking!
