Fun and knowledgeable guides, beautiful scenery kayaking on the river, and local breweries amount to a perfect way to spend the day. We kayaked just under an hour at a relaxed pace to get to the first brewery where we enjoyed pints and BBQ. Going with the current made for a quicker trip back and a short walk to the second brewery. You don’t have to be athletic or in amazing shape to participate, and the guides make sure no one is left behind. Really a great way to fill in a Saturday.

I'm an avid kayaker, but I wanted something different, so took my wife to Cornwall-on-Hudson for the sunset tour with a small group in July 2018. The tour guide was Ben, a nice and knowledgeable college student, who took a group of about 8 out for a 2-hour tour. We learned about the local area and he kept the group together pretty well despite a variety of different skill-sets. The tour was fun, provided a nice challenge of kayaking for most of two hours, and we witnessed an amazing sunset. Ben also recommended having dinner at the Newburgh water-front, which worked out well! Definitely recommend for something different and a memorable experience.

Recently had a friends and family kayak trip and a picnic on the sandbar. Mountain valley guides provided great food, music, and fun! I also did my husband’s 50 th birthday party with mountain valley guides. Everyone loved it!

We tried the Sunset Kayak Tour from Newburgh, NY. Our guide Colin was great. We were a family of 4 brand new kayakers, with 8 total kayakers in our tour group. Colin explained how to row/steer and checked all our gear before we set out on the water. My sister tipped over within minutes of leaving the pier, and ended up in the Hudson River. Colin was great and helped her get back to the pier and into her kayak, calmly and safely. It was smooth sailing from there. The views are gorgeous! I can't wait to try one of their other tours from their 3 total departure points. They suggest that you bring a change of clothing and shoes, which came in handy. Here are no lockers or anything, so bring only what you feel comfortable leaving in your car. Colin secured our car keys, so no worry about them getting wet.

I had pre-booked our doggie paddle vacation and the booking process was very easy. I was making a special request for my party and Mountain Valley Guides were very accommodating and communicative and when we arrived, everything was arranged as planned. It was great to not to have to worry about equipment or set up or destination. Our guide Dylan was great. As the only experienced kayaker in my group, I thought the kayak distance was too short - but since the paddle was really for the dogs, I was really pleased to have had the time on the sand bar with the dogs and allow them the time and freedom to run and play. The kayaking was definitely the highlight of our trip.
