Our Story

About RTO
Rivertribe Outdoors provides outdoor adventures, entertainment, and education through guided and unguided trips, events, classes, workshops, and more, primarily along the Schuylkill River.

To cultivate fun yet educational, easy, and affordable outdoor access and experiences to new and seasoned enthusiasts and adventurers, promote the use of Southeast PA's outdoor resources sustainably, while advocating for their equitable and long-term use and care.

We offer guided and self-service river trips on the Schuylkill River, French Creek, Perkiomen Creek, and beyond.

We currently offer canoeing, kayaking, tubing, and rafting trips by reservation only on weekdays and a mix of on demand and reservation based trips on the weekends.

We can run trips out of these locations (and more), including:
  • Reading (and above for select trips)
  • Gibraltar / Exeter
  • Birdsboro
  • Monocacy
  • Douglassville
  • Pottstown
  • Phoenixville
Lastly, we’re available for guided trips, rentals, and instruction elsewhere upon request.

Our owners and team have been renting boats and guiding trips on and off the Schuylkill River and elsewhere since 1995. We are an independently owned and operated small and local business.
