Called the “great waters constantly in motion” by the Lenape Indians, the New York Harbor offers kayak and stand up paddle boarding (SUP) enthusiasts opportunities for adventure in the midst of breathtaking beauty.
Extensive conservation efforts made in the last thirty years have restored the New York harbor, where eagles soar overhead while fishermen routinely catch large striped bass against the iconic backdrop of the NYC skyline. New York kayakers and stand up paddle boarders sweep through large schools of fish and flocks of birds that have returned to their natural environment.
Many of our knowledgeable instructors and guides started as students with Manhattan Kayak Company and specialize in instructing new and seasoned kayakers and stand up paddle boarders. Our NY kayak and stand up paddleboard programs are easy, fun and available all week long during the boating season.
The more you paddle with Manhattan Kayak Company, the deeper and richer your experience with this fantastic sport will be. Come on down to the Pier 66 Boathouse at West 26th St. and the Hudson River or register for your tour or lesson online to get started right away.
