Brooklyn Kayak Guides

Explore the exciting New York waterfront by kayak or stand-up paddleboard.

Our home base in beautiful Brooklyn Bridge Park provides a fun environment to explore kayaking and standup paddleboarding within New York Harbor. We offer kayak and SUP trips, individual and small group instruction, and open paddle sessions—as well as kayak trip opportunities across the country through our paddlesport network.

Whether beginner or expert, we’ll help you find the kayak or standup paddleboard adventure that’s right for you. We provide equipment, top notch instructors and the information you need to have a great time.

We work with The Brooklyn Bridge Park Boathouse and other East River and Hudson River based organizations to expand paddling opportunities and promote safety and environmentally sound public policies to sustain kayaking and human-powered boating in New York harbor.

    Nearby Transportation

    There is indoor public parking at the One Brooklyn Bridge Park residential tower. Free parking in the neighborhood near the park is extremely limited and cannot be counted on, but you could try. We highly recommend taking public transportation, biking or walking to the park. BBP is accessible by Subway: A/C to High Street, F to York Street or 2/3 to Clark Street train station Bus: nearest buses are the B25, B61, B63, B67, or arrive by East River Ferry or NY Water Taxi google for schedules.


    If biking is your preferred means of transportation then the Brooklyn Bridge Park is the perfect place for you. Whether you enter from the North or South Entrance of the park, there's a bike path that will lead you to Pier 4.
