Few experiences compare with being on the open water in New York City.  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. 

Enjoy a peaceful paddle in the wetlands of Jamaica Bay and view the incredible birds in this habitat.  

Please note: For ages 8 years old and up. This is an intermediate canoeing trip. Participation in a mandatory safety review led by a trained Ranger is required.
