Lake Lenape Sunset Tours

     

Just a short distance from the world of shopping and traffic is a wonderland of nature waiting to mesmerize and seduce you. As your paddle dips into the placid waters, your everyday world will disappear into the lake airs. Centuries have passed, but the lake and wildlife pleasures remain to thrill and enchant all who take the time to visit.

 

Our trip will include a visit to the new beaver lodge in Turtle Cove. Besides the multitude of turtles in the water, we have seen a few really large turtles seemingly playing "King of the Hill" sunning themselves atop the beaver's enterprise. Approach slowly and quietly for an interesting close up view. The evergreens that line the shore will make you think you are in deep woods Maine. Wading birds such as Great Blue Herons and Egrets are seen along the shore banks.


We will proceeding up river a short distance toward the Bald Eagles nest. In a tall pine at the water's edge, the size is amazing. Also along the way is Beaver Slap Island, were beavers have greeted us with loud tail slaps as we pass by.

 

The north end of the lake is also a favorite with river otters, who have been saying hello on occasion. There are many flowering plants and trees that line the shore. White swamp azaleas love the wetlands all along the trip route. While in bloom June thru August, their fragrance is intoxicating.

 

This is a trip that you will want to take more than once!

 

Paddle Shack guided sunset lake tours will interest novice and experienced kayakers. Trips will include basic safety and paddling instruction. 


Your kayak for this 2 1/2 to 3 hour excursion will be selected based upon your experience  and preferences. Paddle Shack offers the Heritage Featherlite 12, Necky Manitou Sport, as well as more advanced touring kayaks. Stable, speedy, and maneuverable, these sit in kayaks offer a great platform for observing nature. To help with nature watching, you may request waterproof binoculars and a waterproof bird identification chart.
 

Tours will leave from the sand beach at the parking area located at the north end of the vehicle access trail just above the campgrounds.

 

Bring your own liquid and munchies, perhaps a shirt or jacket in case you chill easily, occasionally insect repellant is helpful. Waterproof dry bags (available at Paddle Shack) are recommend as additional security for items you wish to keep totally dry.

 

Dates / Times: 

Generally, tours are available every day during the summer and early fall starting about 5 PM. Start and end times will vary with the time of year. We are required to be off the lake before dark.
