A little bit about the Hoboken Cove Boathouse! This is a totally free program and the Hoboken Boathouse runs off the donations and generosity of the community. These Kayaking event embayment program days take place close to shore, near the Maxwell Place beach. These are not river trips. These are free kayaking programs in a small bay area at Maxwell Place Beach. For all participants planning to kayak, please be able to swim (a must), come prepared to get a little wet (bathing suit, sandals, etc) – and don’t forget your sunscreen! Hoboken Boathouse will provide all necessary equipment (kayak, paddle, life jacket). No reservations required–first come, first served. Kayaking Days offer a unique opportunity for Hoboken residents and visitors to experience the city from the Hudson River. The programs are free, open to all, and require no reservations. Trained kayakers will be on-hand to provide tips for new paddlers.

The boathouse is located in Maxwell Place Park near the intersection of Sinatra Drive and Maxwell Place (metered parking is available on the east side of Sinatra Drive). Hoboken Boathouse – in partnership with the City of Hoboken and Downtown Boathouse of New York City – has sponsored free kayaking in Hoboken for the past six years, serving over 4,000 paddlers. The Hoboken Boathouse is a non-profit organization supported by volunteers, boathouse space from the City of Hoboken, and borrowed kayaking equipment from the Downtown Boathouse.
