5-day easy canoe camping around your own private island!

OK, so it really won’t be your own private island and we’re not actually renting out an island. But because of the timing, there’s no campground reservations required and no one else is camping because schools in session, families are working, and the only way to get to our campground is by paddling, which locals mostly stop doing in the fall for some reason. We take advantage and enjoy almost 100% privacy and ridiculous northeast colors.

Here’s what our week looks like:

  • It’s a full day’s roadtrip with a supply stop. Then a paddle out to our campground. Then camp set up, campfire, and chill.

  • Next day Tuesday, we explore islands, tributaries, creeks, everything via canoe, with some portaging involved, as far as we can go, using our campsite as our very own personal HQ.

  • Wednesday, we explore areas we missed and/or other activities like fishing, swimming, etc.

  • We head back Thursday.

The itinerary is fluid, meaning we get there when we get there, we get started when we get started, we wrap up when we wrap up. If you’re signing up to this trip, I hope you’re OK with that. This trip is a bit on the pricier side, but consider that you’re getting a roadtrip, fun times, good vibes, awesome activities, and a chance to unplug and relax on an (almost private) island in the middle of a gorgeous lake in heart of the Saranac region in upstate NY for a week. Not that pricy anymore, right?

Your fee includes a seat in the minivan, your canoe rental for 4 days, along with paddle, map, and personal flotation device. Your fee does not include food and drink, but remember, we’re making a supply stop and we’ll have a cooler. Your fee also does not include camping gear, but rental gear is also available at the rental shop for an extra fee. This trip is rated Beginner. Word.

Beginner Sunset Kayak Tours In Calm, Protected South Oyster Bay

The paddlers of Long Island decided that their bays were too good not to paddle on, so they created the Blueway, an 18-mile paddling route traversing West Bay, Middle Bay, East Bay, and South Oyster Bay. On the section of the Blueway you’ll be doing, you might see any number of the 270 different species of birds or 49 different fish that are native to this area. The water gets to the 70s in the summer and is 3 to 30 feet at its deepest. Paddlers paradise. Word. But it’s tricky. Everything from conditions, to trip length and time, to navigation all require different skill levels.

So, if you’ve never been, you’ll definitely want to go with a guided tour and we got your tours right here! Kayak, paddle, flotation devices, and basic instruction are all included and provided to us by the operator of this trip. Clear up your Wednesday night and leave work a little earlier to watch a ridiculous sunset in the company of awesome people and epic views. #NoStress. Watch videos of how we paddle, then sign up.

Kayak to a F_ckin' Waterfall on the Hudson!

Sit down fam, 'cause you're 'bout to get schooled. You live in NY and enjoy all it has to offer. Except probably the Hudson River. The "river that flows two ways" isn't just Manhattan's river, it's NY's river, stretching 315 miles from the Adirondacks all the way down to the Atlantic Ocean. And despite how badly NY'ers have screwed it up over the centuries, we're also spending billions of dollars to clean it back up, spurring the creation of non-profits with names like Riverkeepers, Clearwaters, and Scenics who monitor everything that goes into it. Thanks to them, corporations, and other community groups, working collaborative with local, state and federal governments have been working since the 90s to continue to keep it clean so we can enjoy it by sailing, fishing, diving, and yes, paddling it. You can pretty much paddle anywhere on the Hudson. But if you don't own your own gear, or don't know the rules of the river, (or how to paddle... or swim...) it's best to go with an experienced guide.

So, now that you know that, know this: there's a secret waterfall that you can only get to by paddling under a railroad track right off of the Hudson River, through a protected marshland, and into a hidden creek. And when you get there, you can swim in a cool, refreshing pool, followed by a healthy lunch. And that’s how we roll… err, paddle. Word. Kayak, paddle, flotation devices, guide, instruction, and lunch are included. This activity is rated Beginner. Watch videos of how we 'yak, then sign up.
