October Rentals: Weekends from noon to 4:30pm
Renters paddle in the 220,000 square foot Intrepid Bay. The Intrepid protects you from wind, currents, and boat wakes.
Rental prices (per 30 minutes, per person):
• Kayaks: $7
• Stand-up paddleboards: $15
• Ages 10 and under FREE with guardian
What to Wear: Your clothes should be comfortable when soaked. Cotton clothes and flip flops aren't recommended. We highly recommend bringing a change of clothes because your clothes will get soaked.
What to Bring: Remember to bring water, snacks, and sunscreen. We provide lifejackets, lockers, locks, and eco-plastic bags for your wet clothes.
What to Expect: You'll start at our front desk and choose from a single or double Sit on Top kayak or SUP. Then, you will lock up your belongings and our staff will help you into your lifejacket and boat. You will get a brief overview of protocols and how to paddle. Finally, you will enter the Bay and enjoy 30 minutes in the supervised Intrepid Bay.
What Boat to Rent: A double Sit on Tip kayak can be the perfect choice if your partner needs a confidence boost. SUPs are best if you have good balance. Ages 3-10 ride free in the same boat with their guardian. Children ages 11-18 can go on their own and their guardian must be present. The weight limit for all paddlers is 250 lbs.
Kids Love Kayak + SUP
We have kid-sized boats, paddleboards, and paddles! This mini-sized equipment helps kids maneuver more easily so they can have the most fun. Just remember that they need to be 11 years or older to ride alone in a boat.
Trips on the River
To get onto the moving water, go with a guide. Guided trips for beginners are The Skyline Trip and New York After Dark, both use Sit on Top kayaks. The minimum age for trips is 13 years old.
