Open to novices starting on May 1st.
Sign up for pre-season offers on our home page now.
Intermediate trips run through October and Advanced trips run all year. To join those trips, take Kayak Basics 1-4 or Paddle Board Basics 1-4 first. No experience is needed. Ages 18+ only. Classes run from May 1st through mid-October.
The formula for success: 4 two-hour sequential classes. We recommend one class per week and one Rental in the Cove between classes to practice. You’ll use sea kayaks or touring boards to go farther and faster than beginner-style kayaks and SUPs. Or learn through private lessons.
Basics graduates are eligible for Intermediate trips. After finishing the Manhattan Circumnavigation, store your own vessel at the boathouse and go any time. Work out with the tidal currents and catch the ocean breeze.
