Join Red Hook Boaters for another year of guided kayaking adventures for a cause! Their expert guides will lead you on a tour leaving from Valentino Pier in Red Hook.

Paddle toward Governors Island – the largest car-free green space in New York City – where you’ll dock and stretch your legs. This year bring cash if you’d like to indulge in some late afternoon oysters.

Upon return to the beach, there’s wine and one of the best sunsets out there as it sets directly behind the Statue of Liberty.

Please note: Kayak tours are subject to weather conditions. In the case of extreme weather we’ll rescehdule but if possible we will adjust course slightly to get you out on the water (exploring the Brooklyn coastline perhaps). Rain date is June 8 at 4:30PM
