Hudson River Expeditions maintains a fleet of rental kayaks, canoes, and paddleboards for touring on the Hudson River. Paddling is a great way to experience the natural beauty that is so abundant along the Hudson River.

Tours launch from Long Dock Park in Beacon, to the charming village of Cold Spring, and on to the Peekskill waterfront, create perfect launch locations for paddlers with a variety of skill levels.

There is an intangible magnetism to being on the water and connecting with the water, removing one’s self from the blacktop and concrete. There is serenity in paddling, feeling the push and pull of the current as you guide yourself along this historic waterway.

The Hudson Highlands region’s grandeur and glorious vistas delight the adventurer. Hudson River Expeditions wants you to experience this connection and tour the same routes that famed explorers journeyed; be surrounded by the region that fills our history and embrace the majestic Hudson River as the national and natural treasure that it is.
