What You’ll Do

Framed by Storm King Mountain and Breakneck Ridge, the vast, burbling waters of the Hudson River feel like a far cry from the hustle and bustle of New York City. During this day-trip, you’ll explore the river’s scenic surroundings with a four-mile kayaking journey through open river and backwater environments. The route concludes at a private sandbar on Plum Point, where paddlers can unwind at a barbecue replete with music, horseshoes, frisbees, kites, and other games.

  • Roundtrip Transportation
    Groups will meet on the steps of the US Post Office across from Penn Station. Snacks and breakfast served en route.

  • Four Miles of Kayaking
    You’ll circle Bannerman’s Castle—an early 20th century landmark on Pollepel Island—and explore the coastline near West Point.

  • Barbecue on a Private Sandbar
    Quench appetites earned on the river with hot dogs, veggie burgers, beef sliders, pasta salad, and skewers of marinated shrimp and chicken, as well as plenty of cold soft drinks and water.
