Manhattan Community Boathouse is a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing free public access to the Hudson River. 

We offer free kayaking as an introduction to the recreational boating opportunities in Manhattan and to help connect the public with the New York City waterfront. 

Our organization is made possible by public donations and the efforts of our all-volunteer staff.
