Kayaking & Rafting — It’s what we do

Dean and Lynn Fletcher are the owners and operators of Connoquenessing Outdoors. We are located in Ellwood City, PA. We offer whitewater rafting & guided kayak trips on the Connoquenessing Creek. Dean, a Certified ACA River Kayak Instructor, also offers classes for river kayaking instruction.

Over forty years of canoe and kayak experience has provided us intimate knowledge of the Connoquenessing Creek. The ‘Conni’ is full of beautiful scenery, history and wildlife. Beginner or experienced kayaker, the Connoquenessing Creek is known for its friendly rapids and river features.

Dean and Lynn have experienced peace and joy admiring God’s fingerprints of design and truth in the river environment. As followers of Christ, one of our favorite verses, Psalm 98:8 says, “Let the rivers clap their hands and the mountains sing for joy before the Lord.”
