The Gowanus Dredgers Canoe Club is offering a 40% off discount to Mappy Hour members (who register early) to join a secret, one of a kind, personal sunset cruise in canoes above Brooklyn's Gowanus Canal.
Paddle along our Gowanus Canal to see a hidden side of Brooklyn, including the underside of bridges and our transforming industrial neighborhood. Discover the fun of canoeing as you explore the history of our Brooklyn neighborhood’s rich past, present, and future.
Meet at the the Gowanus Dredgers Bunker, at the end of 19th St / off 3rd Ave, 11232 - NOT our 2nd St. boathouse. After a short presentation where you and your crew our outfitted with safety gear, we embark on a narrated voyage filled with questions and conversation on how recreation can have a positive influence on improving and encouraging environmental awareness and activism in an urban setting.
Close-toed shoes and a light jacket are recommended, and wear clothing you don't mind potentially being splashed. Use a restroom before arrival, as we have limited facilities on-site.
Due to EPA cleaning of Gowanus, voyage will head towards the 9th St bridge and return to Gowanus Bay and our new South Gowanus Bunker.
If raining or threatening weather by 5 pm, we may reschedule to 8/15. Rain both days cancels & no Refunds.
Early Bird / Discount: $17
Late Bird / Normal Price: $28
