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.

Free Kayak, Paddleboard - Open to everyone!

Hoboken Cove Community Boathouse

FREE kayaking and stand up paddle boarding in our protected cove (basic swimming ability is required). All of our programs are donation based. If you are able to make a donation of any size it would be greatly appreciated! Your donations go directly to helping us continue to provide this program. We are run 100% by volunteers. Everyone is welcome even your four-legged family members. There is no minimum age, however each child under 16 years of age must paddle with a parent or an adult guardian. Sign a waiver at the front desk, put on a life jacket, head to the beach for a short lesson, then start paddling. It's that simple! You will get wet in our boats, bring quick drying clothes. Our program is available on a first come first serve basis. Don't worry everyone gets a chance to paddle. Last boat leaves 30 minutes prior to our closing time.
