Hoboken Boat House: Free Kayaking Day

Hoboken Boat House: Free Kayaking Day

Posted on 25. Jul, 2009 in Health & Self, Leisure

I finally got the chance to take advantage of the free kayaking this weekend in Hoboken. Yes, I came in contact with Hudson River water and did not turn into a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle! And overall, I have to say it was one of the most relaxing activities I’ve done in a long time in town. Once you get into that river, you can paddle your way to a clear, relaxed mind and of course, get some much-needed exercise. Last day to kayak for free until next summer is on August 15, so be sure to check it out!

Kayaking

The Hoboken Cove Boathouse is a non-profit public boathouse for the people of Hoboken. For the past six years, the boathouse has been sponsoring free kayaking in partnership with the City of Hoboken and Downtown Boathouse in New York City, serving over 3,250 paddlers. As a completely volunteer-run non-profit organization, they provide free kayaking and small non-motorized boat access to the Hudson River.

Located at uptown Hoboken by Maxwell Place Park on the east side of Sinatra Drive, Hobokenites can enjoy the peaceful, historic waters of the Hudson River. It’s disappointing to see that the last day of free kayaking is August 15th and won’t happen again till next summer! Hopefully, next year, we’ll get enough Hobokenites to volunteer so we can have free kayaking events everyday next summer!

Kayaking

Kayaking days are free, open to all and require no reservations. Trained kayakers will be on-hand to provide tips for new paddlers. For all participants planning to kayak, please be able to swim (a must), come prepared to get a little wet (bathing suit, sandals, etc) – and don’t forget your sunscreen! Hoboken Boathouse will provide all necessary equipment (kayak, paddle, life jacket).

Here’s more photos from this past weekend! Enjoy!
