Paddle to where NYC meets the Atlantic Ocean

We venture south from the Pier 84 Boathouse down the Hudson River and into the NY Harbor. Our group paddles past Ellis Island, Liberty Island, and Staten Island. We drift under the Verrazzano Bridge, the 4,260-foot double-decker bridge spanning Brooklyn and Staten Island. Just in time for lunch, we land at a hidden beach. We picnic on the beach then head back home. We cover 25 miles round trip. Next, only if this trip was easy for you, go on any Expert trip.
