Hudson River Park's Pier 84

New York, NY, US, 10013

For the first time we’re combining the popular Sunset Fishing with Oyster Restoration and Intro to Stand Up Paddleboarding into one JAM PACKED night of helping, playing and loving the Hudson River.

After your evening of outdoors, head to Filson Happy Hour Perdition NYC to enjoy a refreshing Sierra Nevada brew with other adventurers and the folks from Filson. The best part? The first round of drinks is on Filson (just bring a copy of your Eventbrite ticket).

 —

Here’s how it works – there is ONE ticket price ($50) and it includes access to all three activities. You will pick your “group” at registration and that group will have a specific rotation (see more on that below). That means, if you don’t think you’ll get out of work until late and you *really* want to go fishing, choose Group 3, as that’s the group that rotate to fishing last.


There are three groups:

Group 1

Group 2

Activities:

A. Oyster Restoration

Oysters are more than just delicious. New York City is restoring oysters to filter water, engineer reef habitat, and stabilize shorelines.  Work alongside Park staff to restore oysters and learn how these bivalves benefit the health of the River. (Consumption of NYC oysters is illegal and dangerous).

B. Stand Up Paddleboarding 101
