Brought to you through a partnership between Hackensack Riverkeeper and SUEZ Water, Lake Tappan Paddle Day is a family-friendly day of paddling on Lake Tappan Reservoir in Old Tappan, NJ. The event supports Hackensack Riverkeeper’s mission to protect, preserve, and restore the Hackensack River.

The Paddle Day consists of four paddling sessions. Paddlers are encouraged to bring their own boat or rent one from Riverkeeper’s fleet! You can choose a single-person kayak, a tandem (two-person) kayak, or canoe. Space is limited; paddlers are encouraged to register online.

Fishing from kayaks is permitted, if registrant presents a valid fishing license.

Weather: Lake Tappan Paddle Day is rain or shine. In the unlikely event that we have to cancel the paddle day, registrants will receive an email on Friday, August 10 and a voucher, which can be used at either of our paddling centers or 2018/2019 special event.

Refunds: This event is a fundraiser, with all proceeds going directly to Hackensack Riverkeeper to help continue our mission to protect, preserve, and restore the Hackensack River Watershed. Your registration is a donation to the organization and is non-refundable. Thank you for supporting our work!
