The Next Public Paddle Is October 5!

The 2019 Public Paddles are going on at Manhattan Avenue Street End Park!

North Brooklyn Boat Club’s 2019 Public Paddle series really takes the paddling to the public! And October 5 is the last scheduled Public Paddle for 2019!

Through the generous partnership of NYC Parks, we are holding our 2019 Public Paddles in the Manhattan Avenue Street End Park at the very top of Greenpoint. Come join us for fellowship with your friends and neighbors and paddling on the waters of New York City!

At these free, informal paddles, YOUR community boating organization, North Brooklyn Boat Club, welcomes walk-up participants to Manhattan Avenue Street End Park to join to join trained NBBC guides for short trips on Newtown Creek and often out toward the East River, where we pause to take in the view of Manhattan. Using our new fleet of 29′ canoes, everyone on the paddle works together under expert instruction to forge a unique NYC experience, seeing the city in a new way.

Paddle instruction before hitting the water!

Public paddles are free and open to everyone. We especially hope to welcome our Brooklyn neighbors to see the city the way we love to see it — from the water. In particular, we are proud to welcome other nonprofit community organizations to join us and relax from the hard work of making the world a little bit better.

We will try to get everyone who shows up on the water, but the earlier you arrive the better your chance of going on a paddle. All our voyages are led by certified trip leaders and include some of the best views of the city. This is a great way to check out the neighborhood and get a chance to explore the local waterways. Paddling is free! Our public paddles are child and pet friendly.
