Next Meetup

Free Outrigger Canoe Lessons at Pier 66 - 3
Experience outrigger paddling for free. This event is open to the public on a first come, first served basis. RSVPing to this meetup does not guarantee you a spot. However, your acknowledgement helps us plan our day to make sure we get you on the water as quickly as possible! A completed waiver is required for participation. Click here to fill out the waiver. We paddle rain or shine except when there is lightening. Remember to wear sunscreen and to bring a bottle of water in the canoe to stay hydrated. You are free to wear whatever you want provided you do not mind the possibility of it getting wet. You may want to consider bringing something dry you can change into afterwards. Assume anything you bring in the canoe will get soaked and/or lost. The novice sessions will involve a half hour introduction on the dock to familiarize you with the technique, commands and safety protocol of the canoe. This is then followed by a 30 to 45 minute session on the water. More details can be found at: DONATIONS: One final note, you may already know that we are a non-profit 501c3 educational organization and fully volunteer based. Any cash or check donations – while not required - would be greatly appreciated and go towards funding our efforts to continue providing New Yorkers with the experience of outrigger paddling in New York City. Any donations can be given your land training instructor. In addition, you can donate via our website by clicking on the "Donate" button.
