Private Sessions

Private Sessions

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.
