Paddle and Explore the History of Weehawken and Hoboken!

Discover the intriguing past of Weehawken and Hoboken from Hamilton’s duel to Poe’s true-crime novel inspiration. We start with an hour presentation at the Pier 84 Boathouse Classroom that’s free to the public. Then, Intermediate-Expert paddlers go with a tour guide across the Hudson River and along the New Jersey waterfront. The tour finishes at Castle Point. After a snack on the water, paddle back with the guide. We cover 5 miles round trip.
