Service Policies

Craft Capacity

CANOES: Our canoes are designed to carry two people. It is possible to have three adults in a canoe with the third individual sitting on the floor of the canoe. You may also have two adults and two children (under 10 years old) in one canoe.

We consider anyone age ten and older as an adult and will NOT let any child under the age of two out for safety reasons. Also for safety there must be one adult per child in a canoe.

KAYAKS & TUBES: Both our kayaks and tubes are single person crafts. You must be 10 years and older or four feet and above to use these watercrafts. There is absolutely no doubling up on these watercrafts for your own safety.

The Brandywine Creek is a natural waterway with many things that can injure your feet. We require that each participant wears secure footwear. This means something that ties or straps to your feet. Water Shoes, Sandals with a heel strap, crocs etc are acceptable. No flip flops! For those that need, we do sell good water shoes at a good price. If you have questions please call.


We have had hundreds of successful group outings ranging from corporate events to family reunions. We host school trips, scouting events, Church programs along with camp and youth groups. If you have a group that wants to enjoy the Brandywine River, we are able to help.

Groups of 10 or more crafts REQUIRE reservations. Payment in full must be received 7 days prior to the scheduled trip and numbers finalized. If your group cannot make the trip you schedule, no refund is given; however, we will work with you to reschedule your trip for a different date.


Alcohol is not permitted on trips and will not be tolerated on the company property Pennsylvania law prohibits watercraft operation while under the influence of alcohol or a controlled substance. Alcohol and controlled substances are strictly prohibited in our parking lot, picnic areas and watercrafts.


We offer $10 off canoe and kayak rentals on non-holiday Fridays and buy one get one rentals on canoes and kayaks on non-holiday Tuesdays and Thursdays.

Through out the season coupons can be found in local papers for our canoe and kayak trips.

Don’t forget to bring your “Just the Canoe of Us” post cards for $2 off any trip. These can be used one per craft (including tubes) and are given out at the end of our trips. You may have one already.


We do not offer refunds as a standard policy. Weather during outdoor adventures can change throughout the course of the day. Though we try to make sound predictions about the weather Mother Nature has a mind of her own. In the event the weather turns inclement prior to your launch, we will be happy to reschedule your trip for another day.
