Enjoy a casual float in the cove along the Intrepid!

An ideal and affordable outing for families, kids 3+ and dogs. We give a quick lesson on how to use kayak or SUP, then you’re off for 45 minutes! Enjoy the calm water between the Pier 84 Boathouse and the Intrepid Aircraft Carrier in Manhattan.

Renters stay in the supervised cove and don’t paddle into the Hudson River. NYC’s scenic waterways require local expertise to go safely. Join our Skyline Kayak Trip or NY After Dark Trip for a scenic guided trip. Or, take lessons to qualify for Intermediate Trips.
