We remind everyone to wear a properly fitted and fastened life jacket while recreating on or in the river.

The Delaware River may look calm but it has a swift current, steep drop-offs, sudden changes in depth, and underwater obstacles and hazards.

Wearing a properly fitted and fastened life jacket is the number one thing that one can do to stay safe around the river.”
