Take Me To The River

ShawneeInn-explore-river trips

Our river trips offer the best way to experience the wild and scenic Delaware River. Whether you slip away for a few hours or set off on a full-day adventure, a trip along the Delaware will be a memorable time. As you paddle your way across the river, you’ll have the chance to see some of the area’s exotic fauna, including birds of prey soaring above the trees. A river trip is truly a can’t miss activity here at The Shawnee Inn and Golf Resort.

Some of our popular River Trips include guided kayak tours, canoe and brew for the beer lovers, and sunset paddles that includes a cozy fire, s’mores, and music. A Shawnee River Tour includes less rowing and more relaxing, as guests will journey down the river within a guided pontoon.

All trips are either 3 miles, 6 miles, or 10 miles.

Rates include canoes, kayaks, or rafts, as well as paddles, required life jackets, orientation, shuttle transportation, and parking. Please note, children must be at least 4 years old and weigh 40+ pounds to participate. Safety is our first priority.
