NO, we don't rent anything with motors! But, we do have a couple of captains that will take you for a nice yacht or sailboat cruise.
Anywhere! Just be back by closing time and STAY OUT OF THE WAY OF BOATS!!!
You are leaving from the boat dock inside a marina, so you must be careful of boats. You will paddle out towards the white ferry terminal building and then turn left to go out into the harbor (right will take you thru an industrial area that ends at a waterfall under a bridge). While in the boat channel you must stay to your far right in the shallow area so that boats can use the deeper middle part. You will return on this same side, near the marshy area and buildings and away from the boat docks.
Once you are out into the harbor, immediately to the right is Mercadante Beach, Hempstead Harbor Yacht Club (private), and then Garvies Preserve. We love to send people to the beach at Garvies because it is usually very quiet. Beyond that is a rock jetty and Morgan Park, which is also a nice beach to visit. If you have perfect conditions and lots of stamina, you could make it to Crescent Beach or Pratt Beach at Welwyn Preserve. Across from the jetty at Morgan Park is Sands Point, the preserve is a bit further out, a long trip but doable in great conditions.
If you go left out of the boat channel (look for boats before crossing) you will see beach behind private homes, the Sea Cliff Yacht Club, and then the Sea Cliff Village Beach (residents only). Continuing past the village beach is the boardwalk and beautiful cliffside homes, then Tappan Beach. The Beach Bar Grill at Blu Iguana is a popular destination, but you'll need a few hours to eat, drink and kayak there! Across from Tappan is Bar Beach in Port Washington,
Coming out of the marina and going straight across will land you on beach behind private homes in Sands Point/Port Washington North. Looks closer than it is! Most beaches are public below the high tide line, please be respectful.
Under 16 years old must be accompanied by an adult. We have safety equipment for all ages and small children can go in a double or triple kayak or canoe with their parent(s). Safety is our primary concern, we are located in a marina and you travel thru a boat channel, so parents must be responsible for keeping kids out of the way of boaters.
Please pay attention to your route and conditions. Current and wind may work against you coming back and it could take longer. We don't have a rescue boat! We are constantly monitoring weather and won't send you out in unsafe conditions. Things can change quickly on the water, go to the nearest shore and seek shelter if you hear thunder or see lightning.
Paddling is a watersport, so be prepared to get wet! Quick dry clothing is best and shoes that can get wet. We have bathroom and changing facilities so that you can hang out and go to the restaurant afterwards. Sure you can bring your phone, but you should put it in a waterproof case (yes, we sell them). You can bring your dog, but they need lifejackets too.
We have lots of equipment, so you can just show up when we are open. Some weekends there could be a little wait, but it is a fun place to hang out! If you have 6 or more, it is good for us to know ahead of time.
