Free Kayaking at Penns Landing

Free Kayaking at Penns Landing!!         Penns Landing, Philadelphia

The free kayaking program will begin July 11th (anticipated start date). It will offer Philadelphians and visitors the opportunity to paddle around the Penn’s Landing Marina under the supervision of trained kayak staff. Kayaking will be offered Thursday and Friday evenings from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. and on Saturdays and Sundays from 12:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. on a first-come, first-served basis.


Location: The marina is south of the Seaport Museum. Head down the river walkway (called the quay) to the Dock Master booth. You'll fill out some paperwork, learn a little about what to expect, and get your PFD (lifejacket).  Then you'll head down to the docks where safety staff will help you into the boat and supervise kayakers on the water.

6 solo kayaks and 1 tandem are available. PFDs and paddles included.
