About Kittatinny Canoes
Kittatinny Canoes opened in 1941 when owner Ruth Jones’ parents purchased riverfront property that came with a few boats and canoes. Today the business has grown to become one of the largest fleets of canoes, rafts, kayaks, and tubes in the world.
Reservations run on the hour. Participants are asked to arrive early to fill out release forms, put on gear and check-in. Walk-ins are accepted, but a reservation will ensure a specific trip. In the off-season, guests are asked to call ahead for times.
Whitewater rafting is available all year long. No experience is necessary, and rafting makes a great activity for groups or families. Enjoy amazing views of the Pocono Mountains as you paddle by rock formations and cliffs. With tours lasting around 2-3 hours, it’s the perfect way to cool down during the summertime. Tubing is a 3-mile long tour. Persons interested in canoeing will find whitewater for experienced paddlers and calm areas for beginners. There are many different trips planned out by Kittatinny based on experience. Canoers can choose from an 18-mile adventure to a 6-mile day trip for beginners.
