Catskill Creek Canoe & Kayak (7/9)
Enjoy a gentle, peaceful day on the water in Catskill Creek. This beginner canoe trip will take us past forests and rural areas until we return to the lovely town of Catskill. We'll have plenty of opportunity to stop and take pictures, enjoy wading on the shorelines, and more. Our guides will offer paddling and fishing instruction for everyone who is interested. After our trip we'll stop to enjoy a local restaurant or ice cream stand.
