Strong currents and relatively shallow waters around Governors Island provide fast moving, bumpy waters for fun and games!

We launch from Valentino Park in the Red Hook area of Brooklyn.

Depending on conditions, we may circle around Governors Island and run up the East River, or up along the Battery before lunch. After lunch, the currents east of Governors Island will be ready for us!

Throughout the program we look for conditions to play in and run short skill sessions. And all of it in the shadow of those magnificent buildings of lower Manhattan. You’ll love this trip if you’re a strong paddler.
