Marsh Sunset Couple


Some of the best kayaking on the Hudson happens around sunset.  Typically the river is calmer, winds are minimal and the sky is magical.  Sunset Tours are offered at Cornwall, Newburgh and Hastings on Hudson.  Our Cornwall location offers a $30 special on Wednesdays and Fridays.  Grab a bottle of wine and pack some snacks and come have a relaxing end to your day.


Join MVG on one of our Doggie Paddles.  MVG is the only outfitter on the river that offers exclusive kayaking tours for dogs and their owners.  Dogs must be friendly and sociable.  Our tour typically heads out to a remote beach to let dogs run and play in the river.
