The Tidal Delaware Water Trail is an accessible recreational trail! We encourage kayakers, canoers, sailors, and motorboaters to share the water.

Types of Boat Access

Below are some boat access locations. Larger scale crafts should refer to the “Boaters” list, while kayakers and canoers should refer to the “Paddlers” list. Keep in mind that these access points are both publicly and privately owned, and available information is subject to change. For “Boaters” please follow the links to the Pennsylvania Fish & Boat Commission for any updates. For “Paddlers,” please investigate your stops ahead of time, as most are sunrise-sunset hours and some have locked gates. If there is no associated entity to call ahead, please choose an alternative access site as a backup.
