Ready to try out your sea legs? At Paddle Penn’s Landing, run by the Independence Seaport Museum ( 211 S. Columbus Blvd., 215.413.8655, phillyseaport.org), aspiring sailors get their feet wet on rented paddleboats, swan and dragon boats, rowboats and kayaks. For a little more instruction, Schuylkill Banks ( 215.574.3550, schuylkillbanks.org) takes groups and individuals on kayak tours, which include a half-hour of instruction and an hour out on the water. At Bartram’s Garden ( 5400 Lindbergh Blvd., 215.729.5281, bartramsgarden.org), Saturdays are made for boating with paddlers navigating the Schuylkill by canoe or kayak. Those looking for a bit more of a workout test their agility with stand-up paddle boarding lessons from Hidden River Outfitters ( 267.588.3512, hiddenriveroutfitters.com), a company that operates outposts on the Schuylkill River at the Manayunk Brewery dock and under the Walnut Street Bridge.
