Kayak on the Hudson

  • Free

Nothing says "Dad" like wading into water and trying your hand at some outdoorsy sports, so bring Dad along to kayak on the Hudson. You'll get to go out on the water for 20 minute sessions, and furthermore you'll have a lifetime of memories of him (probably) grumbling after you (definitely) splash him in the face with some Hudson water. You know. On accident. 

  1. Riverside Park, Pier I W 70th St, at the Hudson River
  2. Sat Jul 26 - Sun Sep 28
