How should we prepare for our day away?
A few things to consider before heading down for your day away:
Do we need to know how to swim in order to rent?
Yes - participants must be confident and capable of swimming in the unlikely case they need to.
During your visit
Is an hour long enough?
An hour is plenty of time to enjoy the Rondout creek. Best part is we offer some of the best views the Rondout has to offer within an hour paddle. The name A Day Away comes from the fact it takes about a day to see everything the creek has to offer, explore a little bit of the Hudson and start working your way back.
After your visit
Do you offer group rates or discounts?
Yes we do! We offer group discounts for recurring group outings as well as one-time sponsored events. To learn more, message us!
