New York’s most active public boathouse offers free walk-up 20-minute kayaking sessions (including equipment) in a protected embayment in the Hudson River on weekends and some weekday evenings. Longer weekend three-hour trips usually go from the Midtown location at Clinton Cove ; there’s another boathouse at Riverside Park on the Upper West Side; and a summer-only location on Governor's Island .
