The Gowanus Dredgers boathouse is available for hosting corporate, community and educational meetings or events, followed by a team building guided canoe voyage (a $375 value) along the Gowanus Canal during our season so please contact us for pricing and to reserve dates. 

Our public dock at 2nd St at the Canal is available to the public from dawn until dusk to launch canoes, rowboats and kayaks. The Dredgers use Old Town 158 and 169 canoes that are sturdy, stable, easy to handle & perfect for beginners to learn canoeing.

All of our lifejackets (PDFs) are US Coast Guard approved and we adhere to all policies and regulations of New York harbor. We replace much of our equipment annually.  Our waterfront facilities need of maintenance and we ask that you consider a donation to finance new equipment purchases and boathouse upgrades.

Donations of used equipment are also welcomed and you will may be eligible for a tax deduction for your contribution. If you have a paddle, life jacket, marine radio or other equipment that you don't need or use, please contact us so we can coordinate a donation and thank your for your support!
