After selecting their vessel, groups take a shuttle to a launch point along the lower Stonycreek Canyon. Guides go over the necessary kayaking or rafting techniques and hand out gear, including wetsuits in colder weather. They then lead groups on a full 11-mile run of the river. Rafters and kayakers paddle their way through Class I, II, and III rapids. Guides also supply a light lunch.
Once deemed an eyesore, the winding, 46-mile-long Stonycreek River has undergone a transformation. Today, it abounds with natural life, such as beavers and smallmouth bass, as well as the longest stretch of continuous rapids on the East Coast. With its fleet of inflatable kayaks and tubes, Coal Tubin’ provides a variety of ways for customers to experience the area’s scenery. Knowledgeable guides lead group tours inside inflatable kayaks, whereas inner tubes leisurely float under bridges and down gentle waters lined with pine trees and perplexed coal miners who took a wrong turn. Outdoors adventures also unfold on land, where guided hikes trek to nearby vistas.
