After our first month of Gowanus Canal canoe tours sold out incredibly quickly, so we’re bringing them back by popular demand! We have new dates starting this evening, with several tours this week and into September. Join Untapped New York and The Gowanus Dredgers for a secret, one of a kind, personal sunset cruise in canoes on Brooklyn’s Gowanus Canal.
Paddle along our Gowanus Canal with an expert guide to see a hidden side of Brooklyn, including the underside of bridges and the transforming industrial neighborhood. Discover the fun of canoeing as you explore the history of our Brooklyn neighborhood’s rich past, present, and future. This tour gets you outdoors and socially distanced — a whole boat away from others!
After a short presentation where you and your crew are outfitted with safety gear, we embark on a narrated 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. The Gowanus Dredgers has implemented many new health and safety measures as well. For example, the life vests get disinfected and isolated for at least 72 hours between uses. This is a great experience whether coming solo, with a group, or on a date!
