Hey all!!! We are happy to announce that we now offer canoe and kayak tours on the Catskill Creek, Hudson River and surrounding lakes. Come take a sunrise or sunset paddle with us and check out some beautiful riparian areas and amazing wildlife. You can observe Bald Eagles and Osprey along the Hudson River. Or catch the Great Blue Heron fishing along the Catskill Creek. Check our Facebook page for exciting events and specials that we will be offering or contact us directly to schedule a private tour. Kayak rentals are available.

As well as guided trips we will also be offering a Hiker Shuttle for anyone looking to do the Devil’s Path, Escarpment Trail, Burroughs Range, The Long Path or any of the Catskills longer through hikes that require spotting a car or potential bail-out pick ups. Please contact us ahead of time for availability and pricing if you’re looking for shuttle service or would like a guide on any of these Catskill’s challenges.
