NYC Kayaking and Wine Tasting – Day Trip from New York
After hanging up your life preserver for the day, feel free to shower and change at the river take-out. Once dry, enjoy a hearty picnic lunch before heading off to one of our favorite local vineyards, either Warwick Valley Winery or Crossing Vineyards & Winery (depending on dates). There, enjoy your choice of an included wine tasting or just decide to get a full glass and take it from there. Like anything you tasted? Feel free to purchase a bottle – or a case – to split with friends to remember the day.
Our Kayak & Wine Tasting New York is one of our most popular day trips from NYC and an awesome day.
