What we're about

Attention watersport enthusiasts, come join us for a paddle on the Hudson River!

We are a free paddling group located at the Hoboken Community Boathouse (http://www.hobokencoveboathouse.org/directions/) on Sinatra Drive, Hoboken, NJ.

All of our activities are FREE and open to the public. Our kayaking season (http://www.hobokencoveboathouse.org/season-schedule/) at Maxwell Place begins in late May and runs through September.

The Hoboken Cove Boathouse is a non-profit boathouse for the community of Hoboken and surrounding areas. We are a dedicated group of volunteers. Many of us are experienced kayakers and enjoy sharing our love of the Hudson river. See you on the Hudson soon! Jon and Eileen.

Intermediate Volunteer Trip - Mitsuwa - 10 mile round trip

Hoboken Cove Community Boathouse

*Timeline is not final*

It's Sushi Time! Let's eat some delicious food at Mitsuwa Market Place.

This trip is not a technically difficult one – as we head north, there is less commercial traffic and challenging water than on a southbound trip. However, endurance is essential. You must be able to paddle steadily for 1.5 to 2.5 hours at a time, then do the same on the return trip.

The landing is tricky because there are pilings and mud. Sturdy water shoes are required.

1) volunteered in 2021
2) completed at least one 5+ mile trip in 2020/21
3) attended 2 trainings in 2021 including a "wet exit"

Trip Leader: Maddie
Guide: Oscar

*Bring a mask
Water in a reusable bottle
*Must have sturdy/neoprene water shoes with grip for landing. Flip flops will not work.
*Cash/credit if you plan to eat in Mitsuwa
*Anything else you may need to spend 3 hours on a kayak under the sun.
