The confluence of the Espous Creek and the Hudson River framed by the majestic Catskill Mountains in the background is only the beginning of what can best be described as the most beautiful kayak excursion available in Ulster County.

We were a bit undecided what to do on our last day then came across Gail's website - we loved the personal approach on it, so decided to book a 2 hour trip. It was fantastic - we were running a little late - a quick text to Gail - no problem. Once we arrived (late) we realised we had... More

We wanted to experience some kayaking while in Saugerties and decided to take a chance with I PADDLE. Gail, the proprietor, took us under her wing and taught us the ropes! The trip was so serene and passed the Saugerties Lighthouse. We had a beautiful evening and would definitely paddle with Gail again! Gail was a great instructor and even... More

Made reservations via email with Gail...she made us feel very welcome right from the beginning. We found her easily at the meeting point. Before we arrived, even though it was a warm and sunny day, we were aware of the strong winds. She talked to us once we got there that we may need to alter where we were planning... More

A perfect way to spend 2 hours on the Esopus Creek out of Saugerties kayaking with Gail and I Paddle. Never did it before, and was sure I wouldn't be able to get in and out of the kayak or keep up with others. What a surprise and pleasure to find out it was easy, comfortable, and even relaxing!

The best kayak outfitter ever. We rented two kayaks. Both were in excellent condition and the seats were certainly comfortable. Gail is the best ever. she is knowledgeable of both paddling and of the area. After a wonderful afternoon on the water Gail recommended several area attractions as well as where to dine. Highly recommended.

My dad and I had an awesome time Kayaking with I Paddle. The kayaks were in great shape, the views were beautiful and the owner, Gail was a big help. The trip was relaxing (and good exercise). We saw hawks, badgers, incredible rock formations and more. I definitely recommend I Paddle.
