My husband and I went for the one hour kayak trip. So glad we went. This place is great fun for groups or couples. Peaceful and cool. We are going back for tubing with the kids next time.

To start, we were provided with old fashioned yoke-style vests that were wet and smelled of mildew. No self-respecting outfitter uses those vests any longer. "There will be 2 portages, maybe 3, but probably just 2" we were told. Yeah, right. There were 5. One...More

Make a reservation a week before. Welcoming staff. Visit their web site for details. Reasonable price. Beautiful Brandywine waterway to float down. Many length of trip options to choose from. Relaxing and fun.

We visited yesterday and traveled the Brandywine Creek via the tube option. There are also canoes and kayaks as well. We went on a busy day and we found it to be well organized. We opted for the 2 hour trip which was closer to...More

We rented 2 single kayaks and 2 tubes with our kids (9 and 12). We had a great time and felt it was a good value for the money. The water was refreshing for a hot summer day. The equipment was in good shape and...More

Did a trip with one canoe and 3 tubers so we could pack a lunch and eat on the way. The staff warned us that the canoe would track faster than the tubes so we'd have to back paddle quite a bit. We were prepared...More
