Founded in 1995, Manhattan Kayak Company is NYC’s premier place for kayak and SUP.

Manhattan Kayak’s team of experienced guides takes a core-centric approach that helps kayakers and SUPers to explore New York City in unique and healthy ways. Daily programs are offered from Beginner through Elite levels.
