You'll suit up and after a brief instructional session with your guides, you'll be ready to embark on a leisurely paddle down one of the most beautiful stretches of the Delaware River.

"Overall a good day, although it dragged a little at the end -- we hung around at the winery for over an hour after the tasting, which meant getting caught in some very bad traffic into Manhattan and finishing very late. Not anyone's fault, but we could definitely have spent a bit less time at the winery without diminishing the experience. Kayaking was great, although I was very surprised by our guide: the lead guide disappeared into the distance rapidly and didn't hang back to check anyone out. We were at the very front of the people kayaking and couldn't even see him! Even though it's a fairly easy river to kayak down, I thought the point was for him to lead the group. If any of us had gotten into trouble I'm not sure whether he would have noticed."
