Tailored to You
For more social distance and privacy, do privates. No experience is required. Take private lessons and trips at the boathouse on your own schedule.
Private Lessons: This is the best way to learn and improve your kayaking or paddle boarding with a conscientious coach. It’s virtually impossible to learn correctly alone. Our popular Basics class series can be taken through a series of private lessons for 8 hours total.
Private Trips: For beginners, go for a private Skyline Kayaking Trip. We start with a 10-minute lesson then spend 1-hour out on the river for spectacular NYC views. For experienced paddlers, we arrange multi-hour guided trips.
Cost Per Person: Private sessions are $80 per hour for one person, $70 per hour for two people, and $65 per hour for 3-6 people. 10% discount off each additional hour. For groups above 6 people, check out the Private Groups page.
Scheduling: Our schedule fills quickly. Plan at least 5 days ahead. Billing information is required to secure the reservation.
