Paddle Penn's Landing

Thanks for a great 2019 season! See you on the water in May 2020!

Paddle your way around the Penn's Landing basin in a kayak, rowboat, swan or dragon for the perfect outdoor recreational activity. We're excited to announce that a flamingo and yellow duck (both four-seaters) are joining our fleet this season! Located near Spruce Street Harbor Park and the Hilton Penn's Landing, Paddle Penn's Landing is a unique afternoon adventure with family and friends or a memorable date with your sweetheart on the Delaware River in Philadelphia.
