 Low Cost Kayak Rentals on The Hudson River

Lighthouse Navigatiopn provides low cost kayak rentals featuring Perception Acadia.  Our kayaks are specifically suited for the changing conditions on the Hudson River.  Touring class kayaks provide a more stable ride than recreational models. Sealed stern bulkhead with storage hatch for safe dry storage of your gear.

You get an affordable kayak with lightweight paddle. What you do not get is an undersized boat with a heavy arm tiring paddle. You also will not get a boat that is too big and too expensive for weekend of paddling fun. Lighthouse Navigation wants you to have fun on the river or locallakes and streams. That is why we picked rental kayaks that are the perfect blend of advanced design and affordablity.

Lighthouse Navigation only offers rentals  models that are right for Hudson River conditions.

 Located in Athens, Greene County New York, and old ship building village on the Hudson River, Lighthouse Navigation provides direct access to the Hudson River along Middle Ground Flats. Middle Ground Flats is unique in the fact the entire western sdie of the flats is out of the shipping lane. This gives you almost three miles of beautiful river to explore without the worry of large ocean going vessels upsetting your experience.

Do not just limit yourself to the river! Our kayaks are perfect for lakes and streams and your favorite fishing hole.

We will not rent our kayaks for whitewater or ocean use.
