Wilderness Canoe Trips is a complete service canoe and kayak trip outfitter, with more than 30 years experience planning and conducting canoe and kayak trips on the Brandywine River. They offer canoes, tandem and solo kayaks along with transportation to and from the river, safety equipment and advice. You can also grab an inner tube and let the river move you on a warm, lazy afternoon when you don't feel like moving a finger.|
Pick a date, decide if you would like a 2 or 4 hour trip (canoes and kayaks), they only offer a 2 hour tubing trip, and call 302-654-2227 for a reservation. That done all you need to do is drive to their Wilmington, DE location at 2111 Concord Pike and they'll do the rest. They take you to the river, drop you in for your canoe, kayak, or tubing trip, and pick you up before 5p.m. at their take-out location and bring you back to your car. Summer hours are 9 am until 5 pm seven days a week.
