Harpers Ferry Kayaking
River and Trail Outfitters provides quality kayaks & canoes and the widest variety of rental trips in the area on the Potomac and Shenandoah Rivers as well as 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 whitewater rafting, 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, river safety 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 kayaking skills.

"thank you again for a wonderful weekend of whitewater kayaking over the Memorial Day weekend. I attended the two day kayak lesson and had a fantastic time…Valerie, Mike, and Curry were excellent guides, instructors, and motivators. I can't wait to come back!"
