Marsh-Sunset-Couple-1 (1)


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 and Newburgh locations.  Our Cornwall location offers a $30 special on Wednesdays.  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.

bn-kids-kayking (1)


Kids only kayak adventures from our Cornwall on Hudson location. We offer different kids only tours and host youth groups and camps up to 100 people.


On our Family Kayak Tours we let the smaller paddlers bring moms, dads and older siblings out on the river.  This two hour paddle follows close to the shore line in shallow, calm waters.  Ideal for families with kids ages 7-12.  Some tandems kayaks are available but most kids paddle their own kayak.

Sanbar BBQ


Our Sandbar BBQs are like taking a mini vacation.  This 4 hour adventure starts with a kayak tour to and around Bannerman Island.  We then head to the Sandbar Island for a tasty summertime BBQ.  You will enjoy great food, cold beverages, amazing views, music and games while on the island.  As the tide starts rolling in the island will become smaller and smaller and it will be time to make a short 20 minute paddle back to our launch site.


Our season runs from Mid May through mid October. All of our guided kayak adventures use the highest-quality kayaks and gear, and our tours include instruction, kayak, gear, and guide.
