Rent in Intrepid Bay

Rent in Intrepid Bay

Rental Hours:

Tues-Fri 2-5 pm, Sat-Sun 12-4:30 pm

Rent a kayak or stand-up paddleboard. Either stop by or call ahead on the same day. We only take reservations for the same day.

Renters paddle in the 220,000 square foot Intrepid Bay, named after the aircraft carrier towering over it. The Bay protects renters from wind, tidal currents, boat traffic and wakes. To go outside of the Bay, paddlers go with one of our friendly guides. Because of the water's technical nature, there are no rental establishments in NYC that allow unguided renters outside of a bay.

To paddle outside of the Intrepid Bay, please join our fun daily guided kayak and SUP trips. See the schedule and sign up here.

Rental prices (per 30 minutes, per person):

 • Kayaks: $7

 • SUPs: $15

 • Giant SUPSquatch: $15

 • Children ages 12 and under paddle free


Kids Love Kayaking and SUP

Kids ages 12 and under rent for free! Kids under 7 need to paddle with an adult. Kids ages 7-12 can paddle on their own using our kid-size kayaks and SUPs. If these boats are full, our staff will determine who can paddle alone on a regular-size boat, based on height and paddling experience.

Woof! Dog Heaven


Woof! We welcome friendly dogs to hop onto your kayak or SUP rental. Use the boats here to experiment and see if they can do it. Small dogs are easy to put on board. Big dogs can destabilize you if they jump off. We have dog lifejackets (no charge) and dogs can use the outdoor shower afterwards.

Kayak into the NY Harbor and Hudson River


To get onto the moving water, go with a guide. Guided trips for beginners are the Skyline Kayak trip and NY After Dark Kayak trip.

Plan ahead - these trips usually fill up a few days in advance.



If you have a group of 3 or more, SUPSquatch is a riot to try out...and it can double as a private island.
