Manhattan Kayak

Founded by Eric Stiller, who documented his journey kayaking and bicycling around an entire continent in the book Keep Australia on Your Left, Manhattan Kayak spans a team of instructors who lead kayaking and standup-paddleboarding instruction and tours beneath the city's glittering skyline. Veterans of the fitness industry, MKC's instructors use the dynamic currents of the Hudson River to train paddlers of all skill and fitness levels in the body-first method, which emphasizes paddling from the core. Atlantic Super Girls Julieta Gismondi and Louanne Harris, are long time instructors and guides who paddled two Stand Up Paddle Boards 1500 miles from NYC to Miami last year and earned SUP magazines Expedition of the Year. In addition to leading instruction and tours, MKC's crew also leads fitness classes including SUP Yoga, challenging participants to flow through poses while floating atop a paddleboard, aiming to boost participant health and learn the skills to earn the Statue of Libertys respect.

I and my friend had a enjoyable time kayaking in the Hudson. Manhattan kayak were very friendly and efficient. However I only think its worth it if you get discount.

Great experience! The staff was great! They kept us well informed, explained kayaking technique thoroughly (especially helpful for a beginner like me), and started right on time. Besides those things it is also a great way to get really unique photos of the city...WIN WIN!!
