A Private Guided Trip will give your group the exclusive attention of our guides. Whether your family wants to spend time together exploring local waterways in kayaks or your group wants to experience the team-building qualities of paddling big canoes or 4-person kayaks together, a Canoe Susquehanna Private Guided Trip is a great adventure.

Any of Our River Routes can be scheduled as a private trip at a time that fits your schedule. See our Private Trip Pricing below for all the details. Discounts may also be available for groups who wish to make their own shuttle arrangements or can help shuttle our guides at the end of the trip.

We can accommodate groups as large as 20 in Big Canoes, 50 in Single-Person Kayaks, 68 in Multi-Person Kayaks and 10 on Stand Up Paddleboards.

We also offer a generous discount of $5 per person to groups of 10 or more who join one of the public trips on our Calendar.
