Kayak and Paddleboard Rentals

Walk in Rental Hours:

Tue-Fri 2-5 p.m. & Sat-Sun 12-4:30 p.m.

Drop by to rent a kayak or paddleboard in the embayment by the Intrepid Aircraft Carrier. Call us at 212-924-1788 to reserve same day or just walk in. We don't reserve before the day of. 

Renters must stay in the Pier 84 Intrepid embayment. Why? The Intrepid protects renters from wind, tidal currents, boat traffic, and wakes. The River's tidal currents - determined by our moon - can be very strong and easily sweep beginners away.

If you want to paddle outside of the embayment, please join our guided Kayak and SUP tours. We schedule them specially for when the tides are weak. Tours happen daily (except Mondays). See the tour schedule and sign up here.

Rental prices on the half hour per person are:

 • Kayaks: $7    

 • SUPs: $15    

 • SUPSquatch: $15

We Love Kids

Kids 13 or older can paddle on their own with their parent or guardian present. There is no minimum age for kids paddling with an adult.

Woof! We Welcome Friendly Dogs

Woof! We welcome friendly dogs to hop onto your kayak or SUP. We have a limited supply of dog lifejackets for you to use.

Kayak to Dazzling Views of New York


Look at our full schedule of beginner's kayak tours. These sightseeing tours are the Skyline Tour and New York After Dark Tour.

Plan ahead - these tours are booked weeks 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.
