Black Creek is one of the most serene and beautiful kayaking experiences you will ever enjoy in the Hudson Valley. Nestled in the wetlands of Highland, NY this winding stream will bring you past amazing sights and historical places.

Here’s How it Works:

  • You can take the 8:45am Metro-North train or drive to meet us at the Poughkeepsie train station at 10:48am. (specific meeting instructions will be sent when you register)
  • Your guide will meet you at the station and bring you to the Black Creek Hudson Valley Kayaking Trip
  • Along the way we will stop for lunch.  Bring your own or order from a local shop.
  • Before departure we will stop by a local farm stand for fresh berries, veggies and fruits (and maybe  hard cider!).
  • Space is limited to 6 people.
  • You will be back on the 5:50pm train at the latest.
  • Please note that if we do not get to do Black Creek because of low water levels we will choose another destination.
