Description

Fulbright NY Goes Kayaking on the Hudson

Join your fellow Fulbrighters for an outdoor adventure kayaking along the Hudson River! Get eye-popping panoramic views of Manhattan's famous skyline while spending time with other fabulous Fulbrighters and friends. We'll be gathering at Pier 84 Boathouse, where Manhattan Kayak's instructors will first teach us paddle strokes on land, then we'll embark on easy sit-on-top kayaks. It's a mix of a good workout, serene environment and stunning skyline! Wear water-friendly bottoms and bring your camera, if you desire. No experience is required.

All are welcome (friends of Fulbright/guests too) but space is limited, so make sure to RSVP!

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ):

What should I wear?
Be prepared to get wet (although you might not). We HIGHLY recommend that you bring a change of clothes for afterwards, because your clothes may get soaked. Your paddling clothes should be water-friendly, like a swimsuit, spandex, synthetic, or Dri-Fit materials.
Don’t worry about your feet: either bring water shoes if you have them or go in your bare feet. Cotton clothes, jeans, or flip flops aren’t recommended. Remember to bring a reusable water bottle, snack, and sunscreen. Manhattan Kayak sells waterproof phone cases, sunscreen, sunglasses straps, and water-friendly t-shirts/shorts/hats if you need them, and they also provide a lock for your locker.

What if the weather is bad?
We'll be watching the weather and will email you at least 2 hours before the outing if it’s going to be cancelled. While a light rain is ok (after all, we'll be getting wet anyway), high winds (15+ mph winds) or lightning can be dangerous, so in the event that this kind of weather occurs, we’ll offer you a refund.

Is it safe?
We will have a guide from Manhattan Kayak, so when going out on the river, our guide will be nearby and watching over us. Each paddler will wear a lifejacket and must listen and stay near their guide.
