More Information

On this tour, we explore the unique river valley nestled between the cities of Corning and Elmira, NY. Over 6 miles we'll view wildlife, discover local history, learn to kayak, and have a whole lot of fun!

We start at Bottchers Landing. The tour begins with a safety orientation and a paddling lesson from our experienced guides. Once we're on the water, we'll pass a small island with a few riffles as we reach the palisades. These high cliffs, carved by glaciers, dominate the right side of the river. Keep your eyes peeled for the resident bald eagles! Past the palisades, the river meanders around several small islands before reaching our destination at Fitches Bridge.

Park your vehicle at Bottcher's Landing at least 10 minutes prior to your tour's scheduled start time. We'll provide a shuttle bus ride back to your vehicle at the end of the tour.

We run awesome guided kayak tours, here in New York's Southern Tier. Paddling is what we do and love. Our company embodies the values that define us as guides and as people. We take the time to get to know our guests and keep tour groups small enough that we can remember names. We take good care of our gear and know no greater satisfaction than teaching someone to kayak for the first time. Combined, we've spent more than quarter of a century leading paddling trips. We can't wait to kayak with you!
