Free Walk-Up Paddling

October 26 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

A woman sits in a canoe in a tunnel. The text "Walk-up canoeing" is in green below her.

Stop down and launch a canoe for a self-guided paddle from our floating docks at the Gowanus Dredgers Bunker Launch Site!  Limited to the mouth of the Gowanus Canal to 9th Street and Free (donations encouraged). Please note, this activity is NOT at our 2nd St Boathouse.

Bring a friend and we’ll outfit you with equipment and give quick navigation instructions at the dock. Self-guided voyages can be limited to 15-20 min. if there’s a crowd but otherwise, we expect you to return to the dock 15 min. prior to closing.  Upon request, we will provide gloves and bags so you may remove trash found along our estuary.  We launch from the end of 19th St / off 3rd avenue and it is first come, first served.

Weather (wind, waves or evidence of storm) may cancel programming with one hour advance notice. Meet at the Gowanus Dredgers Canoe Club 19th St. Launch, 2 19 St, Brooklyn, (off of 3rd Ave.), wear sunscreen and bring a bottle filled with water. Close-toed shoes are recommended, and wear clothing you don’t mind potentially being splashed. Use a restroom before arrival, as we have limited facilities on-site. All paddlers must sign a waiver, minors require guardian signature on site to authorize canoeing.
