Annsville EasyAnnsville Easy

This 3 plus hour tour is a great way to acquaint yourself with kayaking and the Hudson Valley. From the Annsville Creek we paddle north towards the Bear Mountain Bridge. This program has you on the water longer than our novice short tour and will hope to move at a pace friendly to new paddlers, but with the possibility of moving faster for some, and working on a few skills.

What we do will be dependant on the currents, wind and the group. We can head south where we will pass a few places which offers opportunity for a rest stop on a 6 mile trip. A four mile trip can cross to the eastern shore and explore South Tivoli Bay and stop on Cruger Island for a break. The third option is to head 2.5 miles north to the Saugerties Lighthouse. Whatever we decide to do, this is a nice part of the Hudson to paddle and a great way to end the day.
