This month, the New Jersey Park Service will be offering kayak “eco-tours” exploring the Hudson River estuary, local wildlife habitats and the habitats of Caven Point.

Tours will embark from the canoe/kayak launch located at the south side of Liberty State Park near the Park Office.

Trips will run approximately two hours and will include a brief safety and paddle instruction. No prior paddling experience is required however participants need to be comfortable navigating in relatively deep water. Life Jackets will be provided and are required.

All participants must be at least 16 years of age.  Participants must also complete a waiver prior to their scheduled eco tour.

Space is limited and pre-registration is required. Participants are limited to register for one kayak tour per season and can reserve a maximum of four spaces per reservation. No spaces can be reserved until registration and/or payment is received. For more information or to request an application for registration, contact the Liberty State Park Nature Center.
