Green Building Kayak Tour

Join GBA on the water and take in Pittsburgh’s green buildings from a different vantage point!


Join us as we paddle along the Allegheny River, enjoying the natural beauty the waterway has to offer.  Led by GBA staff members, this adventure will be a trip both into the city’s past and future. Paddling northward from under the Roberto Clemente Bridge, we will stop along the way to point out various green buildings visible from the river and share insights into the city’s green development.

Don’t worry if this is your first time kayaking, as this is flat-water (NOT white-water) kayaking and even easier than riding a bike.  There are no rapids, the boats are very stable and easy to steer, and the waters are not infested with sharks or piranhas.

Space is limited, so register today to see Pittsburgh from a completely new angle! (This trip may be cancelled if we have low registrations, and participants would be refunded or re-scheduled to another trip.)

We will launch from Kayak Pittsburgh, which is located on the North Shore directly under the Roberto Clemente (6th Street) Bridge.

Please note: Due to unpredictable summer weather, we have pre-scheduled a rain date for this kayak trip. The rain date will be Monday, June 11th, 2018. If inclement weather causes us to call off this kayak tour, we will notify participants on the day of, and all participants will be automatically be re-scheduled for this trip’s specific rain date.
