WALKING: The Pier 26 Boathouse is located on the southern end of Hudson River Park on the Westside Highway just north of N Moore St. The nearest subway stops are the #1 at Franklin St. and the A/C/E station at Canal Street.
KAYAKING: The Pier 26 Boathouse and dock is the first pier south of the Holland Tunnel Ventilation Towers and is the second pier north of Battery Park City…
DRIVING: Driving, Drop-Off, and Parking are not permitted anywhere on Pier 26, but there is usually free street parking available in the neighborhood on Sundays and evenings.
We offer free sit-on-top kayaks for public use in protected Hudson River embayments at each of our locations throughout our season (May-October). We give brief instruction and provide all necessary safety equipment as well as changing rooms, lockers and locks, bike locks, sun block, and first aid equipment.
This is by far our most popular program for adults and children alike. It provides an opportunity to create a personal connection with our waterfront, regardless of age, income or location, and it also serves to educate our communities about how far we have come in cleaning up the Hudson River.
Last boat goes out half an hour before closing
