READY FOR ANOTHER SEASON ON THE WATER? WE OPEN IN JUNE
Kayaking at the Independence Seaport Museum is back for another year! With reimagined destinations, each excursion offered is directly connected to one of our award-winning exhibits. Your ticket provides you not only with certified guides and equipment but also access to explore the building either before or after your time on the water. Keep reading to learn about each excursion and the exhibit it is inspired by.
Want to get out on the water but unsure where to start? Join us for Kayaking 101, where we will show you the ropes (or should we say paddle?) on how to kayak, all while staying in our protected boat basin. Interested? Check out the particulars below:
- When: Summer Tuesdays
- Time: 2 – 8 PM
- Price: $25 per boat (price includes a 1-hour-long boat basin rental)
Quantity is limited, so reserve your spot early!
Paddling times depend on weather conditions, tides, experience, and guided stops. Return times are estimates. Please arrive 30 minutes early. We will be leaving promptly at departure time. Paddles may be canceled for inclement weather events, such as wind, excessive heat or excessive rain, and registered attendees will be notified ideally 12-24 hours beforehand.
Kayaking excursions at Independence Seaport Museum were financed in part by a grant from the Community Conservation Partnerships Program Environmental Stewardship Fund under the administration of the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, Bureau of Recreation and Conservation administered through the Pennsylvania Environmental Council’s Pennsylvania Water Trails Partnership Mini Grant Program.
