Kayak Tours

Explore the Hidden River on a professionally guided kayak tour from the Walnut Street Dock to the Fairmount Water Works! Tours include equipment rental, instructions on how to paddle and safely operate the kayak, and a little over an hour out on the water. Kayaking on the tidal Schuylkill requires moderate exertion.  Kayak tours are $40/person and moonlight kayak tours are $50/person.  Groups of five or more receive a $5 per person discount on regularly scheduled tours, so get a group together! Private tours are also available. Call Hidden River Outfitters, the kayak tour operator, at 267-588-3512 or email them at [email protected] for more info.
