Tidal Paddle on the Bronx River!


Canoeing the Bronx River is a unique and interesting way to explore the only freshwater river in New York City.  From May - November, the Recreation Program offers a full calendar of public canoe tours along all eight miles of the Bronx River within the Bronx





Tidal trips are run in the estuary section of the river, which is affected by the tide. This means that twice a day the level of the river rises and falls approximately eight feet. At low tide, the bottom of the river is exposed, just as the beach “grows” when the tide is out. The exposed areas are muddy and occasionally have a strong smell. This is a very interesting part of the trip as it exposes crabs and other organisms.

When weather events bring heavy rainfall, the river swells and trips may be cancelled if it is deemed dangerous to paddle. In event of rainfall, please call 718-430-4665 on the morning of the event from 7:30 AM on. 

For more information on what to expect on a canoe trip/ what to bring, click here.

Filling out and bringing a waiver with you will save time as we prepare to get in the water, both adult and minor waivers are availble by clicking on the appropriate links. 

Most importantly it is important to bring a smile. Our trips are as much for public education as they are pure recreation and enjoying this hidden gem of the city
