Paddle To The West Village’s Little Island & Gansevoort Beach

From the Pier 84 Boathouse in the Hudson River Park, we paddle past Chelsea Piers to the West Village. The Island is spectacular from underneath – only reachable by sea kayak or SUP. After ogling, we continue paddling to the beach at Gansevoort Peninsula. Choose to lie down in the sand or walk around to Little Island and Pier 57’s Rooftop Park and Food Market. On select dates, we add an extra hour to visit the Whitney Museum! After enjoying the urban exploration, we get back on the water and paddle home during sunset. We cover 4 miles round trip.
