The New York City Harbor Excursion

You are invited to join Outward Bound USA on Sunday, June 4, 2017 for a sailing or kayaking excursion on the Hudson River.

The New York City Harbor Excursion* is a wonderful way to come together with a community of Outward Bounders for a day on the water. Climb aboard small performance sailboats (J-24s) or paddle in sea kayaks to travel down river and around Governor’s Island to explore the New York Harbor and skyline in classic Outward Bound Style. Outward Bound instructors lead team-building initiatives and our partners, Hudson River Community Sailing and Resilience Adventures, lead guided sailing and kayaking tours.

An after party to follow with food, drink and exclusive giveaways for participants and friends of Outward Bound at the Patagonia store in the Meatpacking district.
