Kayaking on the Hudson

Located off the West Side Highway at 44th Street—and just a stone’s throw from Times Square, you can enjoy a decidedly non-New York experience on the Hudson River itself in the calming vigor and isolation of a kayak.

Sandwiched between the glaring tourist attractions of the Intrepid Museum and the Circle Line, the humble, pristine, and inviting Manhattan Kayak Company (MKC) offers a wide variety of boating escapes from the crush of City crowds—from a half hour on a kayak in the MKC embayment, to an hour skyline tour, to a three hour nighttime tour, to an overnight trip to Governor’s Island!

Prices are fair, too—for just $7, you can enjoy a half hour escape on a kayak; for $60, you can kayak down to the center of the Hudson, taking in the skyline, bridges, and Statue of Liberty! For those serious kayakers in the City, all-access membership and storage are available, as well.

So escape the crowds and take a tour of the City from an entirely new vantage point.
