“Paddle into Learning, Explore the Wonders of Nature!”

Only 10 kayaks are available per trip, so sign up now!

Groups will meet at Bordentown Beach

Embark on a journey of discovery with our educational nature kayak trip!  Designed to blend adventure with learning, join us as we paddle through serene waters of Blacks Creek, uncover hidden ecosystems, and delve into the secrets of the great outdoors.

At the heart of our program lies a commitment to environmental awareness and conservation.  Learn about preserving fragile ecosystems for future generations. We encourage those residents who live in communities along the river to register for a trip.

Our nation’s First People and colonial founders lived alongside waterways because they provided sustenance and transportation. Explore hidden coves, lush vegetation, and Blacks Creek’s industrial history as you paddle alongside our knowledgeable instructors. Each trip will provide an enriching experience that sparks curiosity and ignites a passion for environmental stewardship.

Our kayak trips integrate discussions on birding, water quality, watersheds, and chemistry. Through education, participants develop and foster a deeper understanding of our precious waterways.

Experience the beauty of nature and the camaraderie of fellow paddlers with our certified ACA kayak guide.  

Your safety is our top priority. Before each excursion, we conduct thorough safety briefings, covering essential topics such as proper paddling techniques, safety procedures, and a warm-up. We provide each participant with a kayak and paddle, dry bag, life jacket, safety whistle, and bilge pump for every two kayaks.

Reserve your spot today and join us as we paddle, learn, and explore the wonders of nature together.  Do not miss this opportunity to turn learning into an adventure! For safety, age is limited to those 18 and older. All participants will be required to sign the American Canoe Association Safety Waiver.

“We cannot protect something we do not love, we cannot love what we do not know, and we cannot know what we do not see. Or hear. Or sense.” ~ Richard Louv, author of ‘Last Child in the Woods’.
