Newark Bay - Hudson County, NJ (Intermediate)
From the confluence of the Hackensack and Passaic Rivers to the Shooters Island bird sanctuary 5.5 miles to the south, Newark Bay is tucked away and seen by few people outside of its immediate area. Being one of the busiest commercial ports in the United States we are sure to see some big ships bringing their cargo in from overseas as we paddle and navigate the surrounding waters. Add in some historic bridges, cool industrial ruins, and a surprising amount of nature and you have a great day of exploration on the water.

Note: If you are going to use your own kayak on this tour it must be at least 13 feet long.

Raritan Bay - Middlesex County, NJ (Challenging)
Directly south of Staten Island and east of the mighty Hudson River delta, Raritan Bay is an often overlooked, yet great kayaking destination. Numerous shoals, its proximity to the ocean, busy shipping channels and strong river currents feeding it make this bay a challenging place to paddle. With limited shoreline access come out and explore an area best seen by boat.

Note: If you are going to use your own kayak on this tour it must be at least 13 feet long.

Tour dates: Sat. Oct 6
Cost: Single kayak $90, Tandem kayak $135, Own kayak $60

Sandy Hook Bay - Monmouth County, NJ (Challenging)
We know about Sandy Hook's great beaches but how many of us know about its cool bay shores? In our kayaks we'll explore islands, coves and estuaries seldom visited by others. We'll also get a chance to see old military ruins from a time when Sandy Hook played an important role in protecting NY Harbor. A bay crossing will offer some rougher water and interesting paddling conditions for experienced paddlers and if conditions are favorable we may even round Sandy Hook point for some fun in the ocean.

Note: If you are going to use your own kayak on this tour it must be at least 13 feet long.

Also, see Intro to Open Water kayak class/tour on the classes page for an instructional kayak tour to the point of Sandy Hook.
