CANOE / KAYAK FLOAT or FISHING:
We offer a variety of trips on several local rivers. You may choose from a leisurely float down a slow winding river or a trip that includes some faster water. Add in a little fishing if you wish, or we can concentrate our attention on the fishing. Depending on the particular river we would usually be targeting trout, smallmouth bass, and walleye. There are roads that roughly parallel most of these rivers and several access points are available where the roads and rivers run next to each other. This allows us to alter the distance traveled to meet the needs of various trips. These excursions travel through areas in which we often see wildlife, including Bald Eagles. Fall trips, when the leaves are changing, are nothing short of spectacular.
DATES: We do not have specific season dates for canoe/kayak trips. They will vary depending on the water conditions and the type of trip. Dates for fishing trips would also depend on fishing regulations.
A link is provided to the New York State DEC where you can obtain information about fishing regulations and licenses
RATES: Minimum current flat rate for up to 3 participants - 150.00. 4 or more participants - 50.00 each.
( If we supply fishing equipment, please add 10.00 per fishing participant.)
We also rent our boats to responsible individuals that wish to challenge our local waterways on their own. This is a beautiful area with several rivers and some nice flat water available for your enjoyment. We have included Rowboats, Canoes, Kayaks, and Small Sailboatsin our Rental Program. All rentals include paddles/oars and life jackets. Please note that in the past the NYC Dept. of Environmental Protection has only permitted fishing from shore or rowboat on the local reservoirs under their control. They have been expanding the recreational use of their waters by allowing canoes, kayaks, sculls, and small sailboats, (with a removable dagger board), in specific areas and providing they meet certain requirements. This has greatly increased the amount of local flat water open to the public. All of our rentals meet their requirements. If you are unable to transport your rental, we have the vehicles to transport them for you. RATES are dependent on the type and quantity of boats rented, the number of days, and transportation arrangements.
