Experience the Hudson River’s wild shorefront and cliffs

Head to the scenic cliffs of the Palisades across from upper Manhattan and the Bronx. We’ll land in Alpine, the most untouched and natural part of the lower Hudson River. Look for bald eagles diving for fish galore. We’ll cover 28 miles.

This is the farthest north our trips go. Next, head south into the challenging NY Harbor on the Statue of Liberty Trip, then Red Hook Trip, then Manhattan Circumnavigation.
