This 3 plus hour tour is a great way to acquaint yourself with kayaking and the Hudson Valley. From the Annsville Creek we paddle north towards the Bear Mountain Bridge. This program has you on the water longer than our novice short tour and will hope to move at a pace friendly to new paddlers, but with the possibility of moving faster for some, and working on a few skills.
A two hour guided kayak tour on the Hudson River from Annsville Creek Paddlesport Center. This program is a great first step into paddling. The pace is comfortable and a very good way to become introduced to kayaking. Enjoy a couple of hours of kayaking and learn the very basics as the guides move around to help everyone have a good time
A big circular tour with many possible places to explore. Heading south to the Kingston Rhinecliff Bridge, we cross to the eastern shore. We can explore South Tivoli Bay and see the Sawkill Creek waterfall at Bard College or stop on Cruger Island for a break. Continuing north to Tivoli we can turn back to our starting point or head to the Saugerties Lighthouse.
The Catskill Mountains offer vistas of scenic beauty to the legendary land of "Rip Van Winkle." We run a north and the south trip. On the north route we paddle past Rogers Island to Hudson-Athens Lighthouse. On the southern route, we paddle to Germantown Landing for lunch. Along the way, there are a few of the prettiest creeks on the river to poke around. If time allows we can explore Ramshorn Creek, also know as Little Amazon.
We have a few options for our lunch spot in the Kingston area. The conditions of the day will determine how far we travel and the optional side trips. We can paddle up the Roundout Creek to see downtown Kingston or land on the sandy beach at Kingston Point Park. Kingston Point Park is a nice place to get wet and practice your skills.
