Historic Paddle and Explore


This flat water paddle is a wonderful way to discover a little history about how the river was used for transportation, the building and uses of the C&O Canal and Goose Creek Canal.

Get ready for a new adventure this spring with our friends from Fish and Explore (FAE). Certified guides are ready to show you an excursion that is informative, enjoyable and safe for all skill levels. Get close to nature with a wide variety of wildlife who call the Potomac River their home such as bald eagles, red-tailed hawks, great blue and green herons, ducks, pileated woodpeckers, deer, turtles, beavers, and many fish! All Paddle and Explore trips include transportation to and from one of our local launch points. You will be dropped off right back at the main entrance of Lansdowne Resort and Spa. All gear needed will be provided as part of the experience with transportation to Algonkian Park.
