Affordable Adventures: Canoeing Down the Delaware River

DELAWARE WATER GAP, MONROE COUNTY (WBRE/WYOU)- For our next Affordable Adventure in the Delaware Water Gap, our crews decided to canoe down the Delaware River.

Our first stop was a free hiking trip by the falls in Dingman's Ferry, next was swimming at Smithfield Beach, our final stop was at Chamberlain Canoes.

Canoeing down the Delaware River is the perfect activity to end a fun-filled day. Chamberlain Canoes has one of the best rates at the Delaware Water Gap.

Two adults and two children can take a trop for under $100.

"People show up, we help them choose a trip and get the equipment they would like," says Brad Sweeney, the owner of Chamberlain Canoes. "We get them started as soon as humanly, and we constantly rotate around to and from the river to get people to the river all day long."

And the best part is, you pick your departure time and return time, and the cost is the same no matter how long you decide to stay on the river.

Don't be scared off if you've never canoed before. Although it can be a great form of exercise, you can choose to just relax and let the river's flow move you down the Delaware.

"We put out many novice canoers on a daily basis all summer and generally very few issues at all with anybody," says Sweeney. "Just as long as they know how to swim or are capable of swimming with a life jacket on things have been very safe."

The total of canoeing for a family of four is $92. Remember every Thursday morning throughout the month of July, we'll be featuring another local Affordable Adventure.
