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 the paddle and boat, then you’re off for 45 minutes! Enjoy the calm water between the Pier 84 Boathouse and the Intrepid Aircraft Carrier.

Renters stay in the supervised cove and don’t paddle into the Hudson River. It’s a commercial waterway and requires local expertise to go safely. For this, join the Skyline Kayak Trip or NY After Dark Trip or qualify for Intermediate Trips.
