This section of the Schuylkill has a very slight current. There are very few places along the route to stop/rest but it is an easy paddle. with some awesome statues, artwork, a few bridges and the Philadelphia Skyline.
Be ready to launch by 6:30 pm. We will paddle towards Boat House Row to watch the sunset.
If you cannot make the start time do not worry!! Paddle towards Boathouse Row and you will be able to find us easy!

Be aware this paddle is in Philly (can be crowded, not so clean in some places, we are there in the dark at the end of the paddle. You can thank Candie Leusner and A Good Paddling. This was one of the best paddles in 2021. Don't want to miss it in 2022.
This area of water is monitored for unsafe paddling water conditions I apologize for mankind Green is good.
