We now meet at Danville Fish & Boat Commission Access. Shuttle to the Bloomsburg put-in leaves promptly at 1pm, so if you have personal boats to transfer to our trailer, or have not completed the paperwork/payment for the trip, please arrive with sufficient time to resolve these details before 1pm.
In Bloomsburg, we’ll unload gear and Canoe Susquehanna Lead Guide, Allan Quant, will deliver his epic, headlining, always sold-out, roll-in-the-isles laughing, critically-acclaimed river safety and paddling instruction presentation! An historic event in and of itself!
Once on the water, keep alert for sightings of bald eagles and herons. There will be opportunities to swim and cool off new friends with our complementary water blasters. Our guides will be pointing out canal remnants as well as old eel weirs in the river bottom.
On a 10-mile trip, you may get hungry! Be sure to bring a bag lunch to eat on our ‘cruise.’
Cost is $55 per person. If you plan to use a Canoe Susquehanna kayak, please review the Boat Choices page to help you decide which model you would prefer to use.
