Discover the Robbins Reef Lighthouse

Participants must have comfortably finished the Surf City Trip or Palisades Trip this year.

We paddle south from the Pier 84 Boathouse to the Robbins Reef Lighthouse. Now automated, the light has a storied history, its most famous keeper being Kate Walker, who took over after her husband’s untimely death. After 5 years of marriage, he died of pneumonia and compelled her to “Mind the light, Kate” and she did so for 33 storied years. We’ll pay tribute to Kate, explore the Bayonne waterfront, then break at Black Tom before paddling 2 hours back. We’ll cover 15 miles round trip.

After this, join the Red Hook Trip.
