Sleepy Hollow Tour
Description: This is a great venue for beginning and skilled paddlers to experience the Hudson River. In his legend, Washington Irving wrote of a little valley and enchanted region known as Sleepy Hollow. He described it as a place where ghosts and goblins roam through haunted fields, brooks, and bridges. He talked of the terrible Headless Horseman who raced through the night by the Old Dutch Church. The Pocantico River now runs through the graveyard where Irving is buried. We begin each tour with basic instruction and continue our teaching on the water, tailoring to individual needs. All of our guides are well trained, and are eager to help you improve your paddling regardless of your skill level. On this tour we paddle south, past “Kidd Rock”, a large rock outcropping that was, according to legend, used by the infamous pirate Captain Kidd for illegal trading activities with local landowner Frederick Philipse. The trip continues past the historic 1883 Tarrytown Lighthouse, which is on the National Register of Historic Places and once protected steamships from the shoals along the eastern shore of the river. We will then head towards the Tappan Zee Bridge, a three-mile long cantilever style span that links Westchester and Rockland Counties. On a clear day, the Manhattan skyline is visible from this area of the river. This is our most popular tour and a fantastic way to get into kayaking. Amazing views of the palisades, The Tappan Sea, Croton Point, and Hook Mountain abound. If the tide allows we may be able to paddle up the Pocantico River to see the old mill at Philipsburg Manor from a whole different perspective.
