Canoeing on Gowanus Canal

Canoe the Gowanus? #youcandothat

Meet RP and the Dredgers at the boathouse for a short safety presentation at the shoreline, where you will be outfitted with safety gear before starting your adventure.

Then, embark on a sunset voyage filled with questions and conversation on how recreation can have a positive influence on improving and encouraging environmental awareness and activism in an urban setting.

Paddle along the Gowanus Canal to see a hidden side of New York, including the underside of bridges and a transforming industrial neighborhood. Discover the fun of canoeing as you explore the history of this Brooklyn neighborhood’s rich past, present, and future.
