Atlantic Kayak Tours is the most experienced kayak outfitter on the Hudson River with over 30 years of running kayak programs. Norrie Point Paddlesport Center is located in the upper Hudson River Valley of New York.
The Hudson is about 80 degrees so a fun time of the year to paddle
Labor Day Weekend will be busy with Short Tours, Evening Tours and a Norrie to Kingston intermediate tour. Saugerties Sunset and Skill Sessions are still going on. We offer kayak rentals for paddlers with previous kayaking experience and rescue knowledge. Norrie Evening Tours will continue to run on most Saturdays.
Norrie Point Paddlesport Center is located in Norrie State Park in Staatsburg, 4 miles north of Hyde Park and south of Rhinebeck. Kayak tours, kayak instruction and retail kayak equipment are available.
We offer a full range of kayak tours with programs for first timers to skilled paddlers. With Norrie as our home base many programs are out of there. We also run "away programs" from many other areas. .
Once you get out on a tour it's time to start thinking about instructional programs. We offer instruction for basic skills to rough water and rescue programs. We also run a few skills refreasher programs out of Saugerties.
Experience kayaking without a full day commitment. The Norrie Short Tour from the Norrie Paddlesport Center is designed for people with limited or no paddling experience. Depending on the conditions of the day, exploring Black Creek, Esopus Island, and Mills Mansion are all possibilities.
This is a wonderful short kayaking tour. If you want a shorter version of the Norrie Short Tour or to paddle later in the day this is the program to do. Starting at 4:30 and paddling for about two hours it a nice way to end a Summer day.
Are you a kayak with experience and want to go paddling without a guide? We offer kayak rentals for skilled paddlers. Do you have a group you want to take kayaking? Set up a private program for any size group of adults or children. It can be from one hour to a full day tour. Private instructional programs can fit individuals needs allowing you to progress at your own pace.
