Experience kayaking without a full day commitment.
Beginner’s Hudson River Kayaking Tour
This program is designed for people with limited or no paddling experience and for experienced paddlers looking for a short day of paddling.
Depending on the conditions of the day, exploring Black Creek, Esopus Island, and Mills Mansion are all possibilities, as well as sighting the occasional bald eagle. On most summer weekends, this Norrie Short Tour starts at noon.
The area is beautiful and there are many things you can do with the rest of your afternoon within the Park or take a tour of one of the historic mansions along the River. Rhinebeck and Hyde Park both have nice restaurants for lunch or dinner.
*Note: This is an adult program, but we will allow kids 12 and older on this kayak tour.
