Hudson River Expeditions

14 Market St, Cold Spring, NY, 10516



A great way to experience the beautiful scenery of the Hudson Highlands is directly from the Hudson River. You can rent kayaks, canoes, and stand-up paddle boards from Hudson River Expeditions. The company also provides lessons and a variety of guided tours to different points on the river, including one to West Point and another to Bannerman Castle on Pollepel Island.

Hudson River Expeditions is relatively new to Cold Spring. (They opened in 2014.) They rent kayaks, stand-up paddle boards, and canoes by the hour, half day or day and do guided tours. Two great ones are their 4th of July Fireworks Tour and their tour of Bannerman Castle on Pollepel Island. You can see the castle remains from Little Stony Point, but you can’t get there by land. Never kayaked before? They’ll teach you—just sign up for a lesson.
