Venue: NY Harbor, East River, Hudson River
Distance: 12-18 miles
Price: See Price Page
We start from Liberty State Park and paddle past the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island, crossing busy New York Harbor to lower Manhattan.
There we’ll find some interesting conditions before we slip past the ferries to get a view of South Street Seaport and the East River bridges.
We’ll ride the current to Valentino Park for lunch. Later, we play in strong currents near Governors Island before returning across the harbor. This area is well known for rough conditions, strong currents, and heavy traffic. Due to the currents, there are few opportunities for rest stops.
Throughout the program we look for conditions to play in and run short skill sessions. You’ll love this trip if you’re a strong paddler.
