Peace of the Susquehanna
Due to a family health emergency and the resultant life changes, retirement is unexpectedly upon us and we will not be offering any kayak trips in addition to those currently listed on our Trip Calendar.
Please feel free to register for one of our remaining Public Trips or Special Events including the May 27 Peace of the Susquehanna for Northcentral PA Conservancy (register with us), the 2018 Schuylkill River Sojourn (register at https://www.schuylkillriver.org/sojourn.aspx) and the June 23 Loyalsock River of the Year (register at https://afitevent.formstack.com/forms/sunrise_sunset_susquehanna).
If you've been on a trip with us in the past, and haven't yet downloaded your Trip Photos, please do so. They will no longer be accessible after May 10, 2019.
Check back here later this summer for information on boat, equipment, and trailer sales.
A heartfelt thank you to all of our fellow paddlers, friends, and supporters; it's been a great (river) run...
- The Quants
(P.S. If you want a guided kayak tour and can't join us in May or June, we're sure you'd have a great time with our friends at Southern Tier Kayak Tours (NY), Take It Outdoors Adventures (PA and Switzerland), Blue Mountain Outfitters (PA), and The Bad Adventure Company (CO and Worldwide).
This trip is 7 river miles from Montgomery to Watsontown with an island rest stop mid-way. We begin our river trip across from remnants of the canal, then paddle past a peregrine falcon nesting site, under an old railroad bridge & around the end of a WWII-era dam.

This trip is 7 river miles from Montgomery to Watsontown with an island rest stop mid-way. We meet at the Montgomery river access where you will park your vehicle, check-in, gather snacks, water, etc., claim your kayak, & receive entertaining paddling instruction.
