Buffalo Creek Guided Canoe & Kayak Trip

Paddle Buffalo Creek with Canoe Susquehanna staff and members of the Buffalo Creek Watershed Alliance. Buffalo Creek is an outstandingly beautiful paddle in the spring. Narrow, with a canopy of trees, the character of Buffalo Creek contrasts quite a bit with the more wide-open feel of our Susquehanna River paddling trips.

Because of low summer water levels, we aren't able to guide trips on Buffalo Creek later in the season. So, don't miss your chance to experience this unique tributary. Be sure to sign up for one of our Buffalo Creek Trips today!

Before we launch our canoes & kayaks onto Buffalo Creek each trip, Allan Quant & Jeremy Quant will share information about paddling techniques, safety issues, etc.

Creek conditions permitting, we will begin each trip at Cowan.  A lot of folks have been anticipating paddling this section, so sign up early!

For the April 6 trip, please keep in mind that "early season" always means cold water and may well mean cold air temps.  Although our staff will try to reduce the size of the worst strainers, one always needs to be able to turn one's kayak/canoe quickly when paddling Buffalo Creek.  If you can't turn your kayak/canoe in current, please come with us on a later trip.

Update on March 31, 2014:  

As I am sure you all aware Spring weather has been slow in arriving this year.  
As you may be aware, one easy safety guideline for cool weather paddling is this: 
water temperature + air temperature ≥ 100ºF or wear a wetsuit.
Although the weather today and tomorrow is forecast to be lovely, the forecast for the rest of the week and weekend is for much cooler and grayer weather.  
We know that many of you do not have access to wetsuits and that the creek is such that we can expect some spills and chills, but we do not want to put anyone at risk for an unpleasant or unsafe cold experience.
Therefore, on the basis of everyone's safety and enjoyment, we are canceling the upcoming April 6 Buffalo Creek trip.
I am so sorry to disappoint all of you and hope that you can join us in a few weeks on Buffalo Creek on Sunday, April 27 &/or Saturday, May 3.
On those dates, we will begin paddling at Cowan, Mazeppa, or Strawbridge Road, depending on Creek conditions.

These trips benefit the Buffalo Creek Watershed Alliance.
