Established in 1994, the Downtown Boathouse in Tribeca is an all-volunteer nonprofit organization dedicated to providing free public access to the harbor in New York City through their kayaking programs. Their mission is to encourage safe public use of the harbor waters of New York City and thereby provide residents of this space-constrained city with increased recreational opportunities. Since the start of their kayaking program, they’ve launched nearly a half million people on the water, for free!
