Be surrounded by the best views in NYC by kayaking on the Hudson River!

Get a quick lesson, then paddle out for the most scenic views of Manhattan with professional guides. Get light exercise, pause for reflection and photographs, and escape the tourist crowds. No need for swimming or paddling experience.

We begin near the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum. Iconic sights include One Times Square, The Hudson Yards, Central Park Tower, the entire west side of Manhattan and the Statue of Liberty on the horizon on a clear day. We pause on the way to highlight NYC history and architectural wonders. Experts skip the lesson and cover up to 6 miles.
