Harpers Ferry Canoeing
River and Trail Outfitters provides quality canoes and the widest variety of rental trips in the area on the Potomac and Shenandoah Rivers as well as the Antietam Creek. For novice boaters there are scenic mellow water trips. For more experienced boaters there are a variety of whitewater runs in and around Harpers Ferry only one hour from Washington DC on the Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia border. For those people who have enjoyed the beauty and challenge of white water rafting, to canoe or kayak affords a more personal experience with your boat, your companion, and the river.

For your maximum enjoyment, we recommend that at least one person in each boat has basic paddling and steering skills. You can expect some riffles and rapids on all of our trips and rentals-rivers are not lakes and moving water requires attentive paddling. Lessons providing basic instruction are suggested for first timers and those looking to improve their canoeing and kayaking skills. Certified guides are also available for those wanting a guided tour.

"Thanks a bunch for teaching all us girl scouts how to canoe. We all had lots of fun. We will always remember what you told us for years to follow…I can't imagine any of us going home and not asking for a boat of our own… you made our learning so much fun. We can't thank you enough."
