    Hey guys, what's the ride like through the C&D Canal? I was thinking of trying this in reverse launching from Pennsville, NJ. Looks like a convenient way to get to the Chesapeake. Is the canal a no-wake zone as it looks like a 17 mile ride through the canal?

    Hello River Rider,


    Typically it is a smooth ride you just have to watch the posted No Wake Zones throughout the Canal. It is a lot of fun and a lot of different things to see. There is also places to fuel and eat if that is something you are interested in. By the way please feel free to check out our big Freedom Ride advertisement here on Green Hulk. It's the 2013 Operation Helping Hero's Freedom Ride. You can always check out our calendar on our website to find out where we will be riding this season as well as we will be posting our weekely rides and events on here.



    Thanks

    No, thank you for the information. Checked out your website and saw you're going there early June, do you have to be a member to ride or can I just tag along?

    Do you launch out of the Pennsville ramp? What's the Delaware like down there, I've never been south of the Commodore Barry.

    Went up the C&D yesterday and after a certain point it says no jetski. Is it illegal to travel across the C&D canal?

    I ride thru the canal all the time, never saw such a sign. I launch out of Flying Point Park in Edgewood on the weekends and ride to Fairlee Creek or Chesapeake City.
