Solidify your kids’ love of the outdoors!


At Manhattan Kayak, we balance water education and fun. Children learn to appreciate the outdoors while gaining confidence on the water and making new friends. We infuse our programming with a sense of playfulness while ensuring safety and supervision as the children become navigators of the Hudson River.

Each class includes 1.5 hours of kayak or stand-up paddle board instruction, followed by an hour of boat handling games, SUP yoga and dance, marine life education, or boat maintenance lessons.


  • Ages 8-14 years old only.
  • Swimming skills are required in case of capsize.
  • Children must be able to listen and follow directions.
  • Your child must be able to follow our COVID Protocols at all times.
