Mountain Valley Guides has three locations for great Hudson River Kayaking.  Our base of operations is located in Cornwall-on-Hudson, NY located just 14 miles north of Bear Mt. 

We also offer kayak tours from our Hastings-on-Hudson location.  Hastings is located in Westchester County and can be easily reached by Metro North (Hudson Line).  Our launch site is only a 3 minute walk from the train station.

Our newest location from the Newburgh Waterfront was a success in 2016.  This location is the launch point for our Paddles & Pints Tour along with Sunset Paddles and tours to Dennings Point.  Enjoy a kayak paddle and the stroll next door to the many bars and restaurants along the Newburgh Waterfront.



 All of our kayak tours include gear, kayak, instruction and guide.  There are no hidden costs. Mountain Valley Guides will celebrate our 15th year on the river this Summer.  Join us on our FAMOUS Sandbar BBQ (private bookings only) or a Sunset Paddle or a paddle to Bannermans Island or the Palisades Cliffs.  So many tours to choose from you can kayak with Mountain Valley Guides all summer long.  Check out our Summer Kids programs including our Kayak Academy for kids 10-15, a five day long kayak program on the Hudson River.
