If you are considering a SUP adventure in the near future, you know that the location is absolutely what makes the trip worthwhile. Even though many people believe that the waters of New York City are too cold, you can still have a great time with your inflatable SUP in this area as long as you pick your location carefully. New York City is the biggest city in the country. Therefore, there are plenty of incredible places where you can give stand-up paddleboarding a try. What are a few locations you should add to your list? Take a look below!
SUP The Shipyard Marina In New York City
First, lets take a look at the Shipyard Marina. Even though this is technically located in Hoboken, New Jersey, this is still very easy to access from New York City. It has a beautiful view of the skyline of New York City, so you should definitely bring your camera. Even though the port is busy, you can also find calm spots to try SUP yoga, take SUP lessons, and even go on a few tours. If you want stunning views of New York City, including the Empire State Building, then you should give this marina a try.
SUP The Hudson River and the Waterways of Manhattan
Of course, when you are in New York City, you have to check out the Hudson River. Specifically, you should consider bringing your SUP to the Hudson River Park, which has more than five hundred acres of park area. There are numerous water experiences available, including opportunities to go stand-up paddleboarding. Keep in mind that there is a current on the river, so this is not necessarily a good place for beginners; however, if you are experienced, check out Manhattan’s waterways!
The Salt Marsh Center and Marina SUP Adventures
Next on our list of places to SUP in New York City is the Salt Marsh Nature Center and Marina, located in Brooklyn. Salt Marsh Nature Center is the largest park in Brooklyn and has a wide variety of flora and fauna that peeks out from this urban landscape. You can float through some quiet creeks and marshes for a few miles. Then, you can paddle all the way out of the Atlantic Ocean for an epic day on the water. Because of the wide variety of available options, this is a great place to sight-see on your inflatable SUP. You should also bring your camera with you because you will see a wide variety of birds as well.
The Brooklyn Bridge Park Is a Great Scenic SUP Day
You may also want to take a closer look at the Brooklyn Bridge Park. This offers some of the most scenic locations in all of New York City. The park was recently redeveloped, creating a beautiful atmosphere in which you can experience the river. Even though they do not offer rentals, you can launch your own inflatable SUP from the shores. There are lots of peers from which to choose, so why not try a few different launch points for different experiences?
The Rockaways and Jamaica Bay SUP For Sunset Watching
Finally, you may want to take a closer look at Jamaica Bay. Jamaica Bay is a great spot to give stand-up paddleboarding a try. Here, you can paddle out to sea and watch the sunset. Whether you live in Queens or are simply looking for a change in scenery, you will also have access to a beautiful Wildlife Refuge. With more than 18,000 Acres of wetlands available, you may be able to start a wide variety of marine and bird species. The waters are relatively calm, so make sure you keep your eyes focused on the water.
