Your tour starts at the Hudson River Greenway, just a quick walk from Times Square. Meet your guide at the MKC Boathouse and learn about proper safety procedures of kayak usage and get outfitted with lifejacket, paddle and easy-to-use kayak. Beginners can start by paddling around the boat dock. Or head straight for the Hudson River to begin amazing sightseeing.
Kayak for about a half a mile from the riverbank at a pace you’re comfortable with. And don’t forget to turn around to get the incredible views of the center of Manhattan. Look out for the Chrysler Building, the Bank of American building, the Conde Nast Building, the New York Times Building, the Time Warner Center and, of course, the Empire State Building, as you float on the river near the neighborhoods of Hell’s Kitchen and Midtown.
An hour later, let your guide help you get out of the kayak. Guests are allowed free use of the company’s showers and changing rooms.
