Sunset Potomac Kayaking Tour
Sunset kayaking tour on the Potomac River near Harpers Ferry, WV
Sunset Paddle: Wildlife & Waves
Paddlers should have previous experience kayaking
Although it doesn’t happen often, please know there is a possibility of flipping over. Only single kayaks are available to rent on this trip as the put-in requires double carrying the boats down a gravel hill. Shoes with good traction are required! To make this trip a fun and convenient overnighter, make reservations at the Brunswick Family Campground which is the launching spot for the trip. Show up a bit early to set up your tent or camper before you take off down the river. Cabin rentals are available with a two night minimum.
Beach cruiser bikes rentals are also available, and peddling to Harpers Ferry or farther on the scenic, tree-lined pathway of the C&O Canal offers a great opportunity to experience more of the area before your trip.
