Sunset on the Schuylkill: Evening Guided Kayak Tour

June 22 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Join us for an evening guided kayak tour of the Schuylkill River below the dam (falls at Water Works). Kayaking on the tidal Schuylkill offers a whole new perspective on our city and its water source.

Tour departs from the Walnut Street dock along the Schuylkill River Trail and heads upriver to the Fairmount Water Works, where you’ll experience a rarely seen perspective of these historic structures from the water below. You’ll also enjoy spectacular views of the Art Museum and the city skyline! Experienced kayak guides will share plenty of interesting info along the way.

No gear or kayaking experience necessary — kayaking equipment and instruction provided by Hidden River Outfitters.

TICKET PRICES:  Pay what you can – $40, $50, or $60
