Adirondack Canoeing Guide

Spring/Summer/Fall Guided Day Paddle List

Food, Clothing & Gear

It is recommended that the following items be brought along on our Adirondack day paddle trips. Our weather tends to be rather unpredictable, and changes without warning. Isolated thunderstorms are a common occurance. Even though we venture into the outdoors not expecting to deal with an accident or injury, they do occur. Please be sure to pack what you would need to keep yourself dry and warm in the event of an unexpected delay during the journey. Hypothermia can occur during any season.

All paddlers are required to wear a properly fitted PFD while on the water, regardless of swimming ability.

  • Day pack large enough to hold the items on this list if you plan to bring your own
  • "Water" shoes, preferably ones that cover the toes for protection when portaging canoes (NOTE: bare feet are not allowed for safety reasons)
  • Expect to get wet feet when entering & exiting the Hornbeck canoe
  • For cooler weather paddles, neoprene water boots help keep the feet warmer
Food & Water:
  • Lunch, snacks, and a minimum of 1 liter of drinking water or other non-alcoholic beverage. NO GLASS CONTAINERS PLEASE!!!!
Clothing: (Please avoid cotton clothing in cooler weather conditions!)
  • "Water" clothing, preferably quick dry types like nylon, techwick, polypro, fleece
  • Rain gear** or poncho (We are subject to Adirondack weather!)
  • Long sleeve top and bottoms (for warmth and to protect from sun, as necessary)
  • We recommended that you pack dry clothes in plastic bags to keep them dry inside the pack we provide.
Food, Clothing & Gear
Other Items:
  • Towel in the event you need to dry off
  • Small plastic bag for your personal trash & wrappers
  • Paddling gloves for those prone to blisters
  • Small amount of toilet paper & a lighter in a Ziploc bag
  • Whistle (loud!)
  • Sunscreen
  • Bandanna
  • Sun hat
  • Sun glasses with glasses "leash"
  • Insect repellent
Optional Items:
  • Binoculars (Nice for viewing wildlife)
  • Camera & extra batteries (in a water-proof or Ziploc bag is recommended)

** In regards to rain gear - we recommend a waterproof rain top & bottom as well as a poncho for day trips. Rain suits can be used for warmth over a wool or fleece top and also as a windbreaker in windy conditions. Ponchos tend to catch wind and branches along the trail but are appropriate for most maintained trails. They can also be used to keep your pack dry during wet conditions.

Please avoid cotton clothing. It retains moisture that promotes a loss of body heat when wet. It's always a good idea to bring a complete set of warm, dry clothes for changing into in the event of an injury to yourself or another group member. Hypothermia is a risk any season.

In regards to water - the guide will have a water filter and should be able to replenish water along the way.
