Rent in Intrepid Bay

Rent in Intrepid Bay

Rent Kayaks & Paddleboards: Resuming on Saturday May 26!

Renters paddle in the 220,000 square foot Intrepid Bay. Walk-ins only, no reservations accepted.

The Intrepid protects renters from wind, tidal currents, boat traffic and wakes. 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, contact us for a guided trip.

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.



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