Dogs galore

Yappy Hour is a great way to get exercise outdoors with your dog. We guide you through outfitting, learning basic strokes, and launching at the Pier 84 Boathouse. Then, paddle for 30 minutes alongside the Intrepid. We’ll be on the water to help you.

We welcome dogs of all size. Owners pick up after their dog and manage aggressiveness. It’s okay if your dog is shy of the water. Yappy Hour is an easy way to try and see what happens.
