Prepare for kayak tours in NYC and around the world

 

The Atlantic Ocean floods into and ebbs out from Hudson River several times daily. The water is always moving and will literally sweep away any unguided kayak in NYC. So if you’re a Novice, go with a guide and get the best views of the NYC skyline on the Skyline Kayak Tour or New York After Dark. Guides keep the group safe while paddling out to the best views. We use easy sit-on-top kayaks for Novice tours, therefore no experience is needed.

Or, go faster and farther using a proper sea kayak. We teach skills to last a lifetime in Kayak Basics. There are boundless NYC adventures for sea kayakers who practice strong technique. After Kayak Basics 1-4, try Intermediate tours. We provide the guide, Tsunami kayak, and logistics. In order of difficulty, they are: Secret Beach, Sushi Trip, Surf City, GW Bridge.

After Intermediate tours, try Advanced tours. Take them in this order: Freedom Tower, Palisades Picnic, Liberty Quest, Governor’s Island, Brooklyn Beach. These are intense multi-hour journeys with a friendly group.

After Advanced tours, try Elite tours. Take them in this order: Red Hook Ride, Manhattan Circumnavigation, Alpine Adventure, Staten Island. These tours prepare you for expeditions around the world!
