The Croton River is rich with wildlife such as Osprey, Hawks, and Herons and runs passed the Historic Van Cortlandt Manor, a pre-revolutionary estate. For more experienced paddlers that can demonstrate appropriate rescue techniques it is possible to enter into the Hudson River in the Croton Bay and paddle to Teller's Point (Croton Point) where we will take in great views down the Hudson River and even get a glimpse of the Tappan Zee Bridge. Fishing is permitted but you have to bring your own equipment. Reservations for touring kayaks at the Croton River are recommended but NOT required.

It is recommended that participants successfully completed a basic kayaking course with Hudson River Recreation OR be able to describe and/or demonstrate (depending on itinerary) appropriate paddling and rescue skills. Participants that successfully complete either our Introduction to Sea Kayaking lesson or Rescue Clinic instructional program will be given a voucher for a 1-hour rental to offset the costs of the lesson.
