  • Beautiful place and everyone at Hudson River Expeditions was great. Super friendly from check in to boat launch. Constitution Marsh itself is gorgeous, definitely worth exploring. Just make sure to look up the easy to find access times on the HRE website. As it is a marsh, exit and entry times depend on the tides (low tide there's not enough water to prevent grounding). If you're not planning on a marsh visit, your schedule is more flexible.
  • Went out with my family. It was our first time. We took a canoe. The guy said it didn't matter who sat where when it clearly did . No briefing on anything. Long story short. We got caught in a current. We flipped over with my 7 and 9 year old girls. The guy who towed us was excellent and soothing. A nice kayaker stayed by us until we got towed back. Worst experience!
  • Hudson River Explorations team ran a great kayaking on the Hudson. Lunch could have been better for the price. Bannerman island staff didn't have their act together
  • Great time! I was a first time kayaker and nervous; breast cancer survivor. Your guide was great about calming me and encouraging me; he offered great tips and directions but also let me get the feel before offering help.
  • On the day of our visit we were advised against taking a baby on the river due to windy and we were glad we listened to the staff's advice. We have rented from them once before, and the staff was consistently friendly and helpful. We will be renting from them in the near future.
