Rentals begin again on May 11, 2019
If you're an Advanced paddler, join our Winter Trips.
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.
Kayak or SUP? 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.
