Wat je gaat doen
I'll bring you on an adventure down a local creek in a canoe. I have most everything you'll need. We'll meet either at my house, or creekside. You are welcome to bring your own kayak if you wish. I can usually have the shuttle back to your car all set, but once in a while guests may have to drive me the ten minutes back to my car. This experience can be a short, hour-long paddle, or a 4 hr leisurely float with some fishing and a picnic, or a stop at The Outpost Barbecue for lunch or dinner. The water is clean so taking a dip is recommended in the hot summer. Birders... bring your binoculars! Fishermen... bring your rod. Sunbathers... bring your sunscreen. Depending on the section of the creek, there are basically no rapids but there is always some sort of flow. Each season varies a bit, but provided we've had enough rainfall, this creek, though shallow in some spots, can be floated without hitting the bottom at all. At times, especially in late summer, be prepared to step out onto the slippery rocks and float your boat over a shallow section. Departure time is variable so please inquire first before booking.
I've spent a month canoe camping in the Boundary Waters of Minnesota, paddled 350 miles from Burlington, VT to Long Island and have done all the local creeks and rivers, many times and in all seasons. As a licensed NYS outdoor guide, former canoe/kayak sales rep and fisheries biologist, I know most of the plant and critter species we might see, as well as have the experience to know how to be comfortable and safe along the way. I love to share my skills and knowledge with other folks with a goal of just showing them a great time, or teaching them about the nature in this area, usually both.
Wat er is inbegrepen
Subaru with a boat rack. I may ask for you drive me back after I leave my car at our departure location, but I usually have…
Canoe, paddles. I do have personal flotation devices for you as well as a few dry bags. I will have a first aid kit with us.

Waar je naartoe gaat
We'll be in the Rondout Valley west of the Shawanagunk Ridge which is home to both the Mohonk Preserve and Minnewaska State Park. The Rondout Creek is one of the small rivers that New York City dammed in the early 1900'ds to make reservoirs for NYC drinking water. The reservoir is only about 15 miles upstream of where we'll be paddling. The creek runs along a historic D&H Canal and many remnants can still be seen along the trip.
