Founded in 1902, Inwood Canoe Club is the oldest canoe and kayak club in Manhattan.
"Seasons Come and Go, but Inwood is Forever"
Every Sunday from Memorial Day weekend to Labor Day weekend, the Inwood Canoe Club invites members of the public who can swim to join us for a guided, 20-25 minute kayak tour of the Hudson River just north of the George Washington Bridge. We paddle from 10:00 to 12:00, but guests are asked to arrive between 9:30 and 11:15 to ensure they get a spot. No prior experience is needed, and all equipment is provided.
The Inwood Canoe Club has evolved a lot over the last couple of years – partly due to unforeseen events such as Hurricane Sandy, and partly because of changes in the neighborhood and along the waterfront. Read on to get an update from the Commodore, as well goings on in and around the boathouse...
Founded in 1902, the ICC is the oldest canoe and kayak club in Manhattan. While we are now a recreational club, the Inwood Canoe Club was once a training ground for canoe racers. Between 1956 and 1984, seven members of the ICC proudly represented the U.S. in the Olympics.
