Support us on when you shop on Amazon

Did you know that shopping on Amazon supports the Brooklyn Bridge Park Boathouse? Amazon Smile donates a portion of their profits from your purchases to organizations like us. All you have to do is make sure you shop at and list the Brooklyn Bridge Park Boathouse as the non-profit organization you’d like to support.


Book a private paddle

Private paddles are great ways for groups to enjoy kayaking together outside of our free public hours. They can be setup as casual kayaking in our embayment or as a friendly game of kayak polo at the Pier 4 beach. They’re great for team building or corporate social events. We can tailor a private paddle to the size and needs of your group and every private paddle includes time for kayaking instruction, equipment and on-water safety boaters.

Send us an email at if you’re interested in setting up a private paddle.
