Family Owned Since 1955
It all began in 1955 when Bob Lander, a young boy from Brooklyn, fell in love with the Delaware River. A New York City boy, Bob, used to travel to Ten Mile River Scout Camp in the summer, first as a scout and second as a summer employee. Bob became an electrician in Brooklyn and kept dreaming of the times he had spent on the Delaware River. In 1955 Bob decided that it was time to make his vision a reality. Bob and his wife, Joan, bought Ten Mile River Motel, an oversized bungalow and turn it into a rustic lodge complete with a pool. Bob purchased just ten canoes and began renting them on the Delaware River. He named his new canoe business, Bob Lander’s Canoes.
Bob and Joan started a family and it wasn’t long before they had incorporated kayaking, rafting, and camping into their business. In 1983, Bob changed the name of his river business to Lander’s River Trips before passing away, wanting his vision to continue with his son, Rick.
Today, Rick Lander and his wife, Lisa, keep the family tradition going with their four children, Heather, Sarah, Alex, and Richard. Rick and Lisa have grown Lander’s River Trips to encompass more than 70 miles on the river stretching from Hancock to Port Jervis.
The Lander Family serves all types of adventure-seekers from rapid runners to fisherman from April through Columbus Day.
