Basic Canoeing

Sunday, June 3, 2018

11:00 a.m.2:00 p.m.

Few experiences compare with being on the open water in New York City. The rhythm of the waves, the sun on your face, and the exhilaration of slicing through the water all add up to an experience you’ll never forget. 

Our trained Urban Park Rangers will lead you on canoe adventures that range from the gentle waters of protected lakes to the challenging open waters of rivers and bays. All canoe programs are for ages 8 years and older. Participation in a manadatory safety review led by a trained Ranger is requied.

This basic canoeing program is great for all skill levels. This program is first-come, first-served. Due to demand, line may close prior to end time.
