Welcome to the 2019 Season!

Hope to see you on the water with us!

The Long Island City Community Boathouse is an all-volunteer, non-profit group dedicated to free kayaking and environmental education and stewardship on the East River. Read more here.


What we do

We have several programs that we run that include public walkup paddles in Anable Basin and Hallets Cove, as well as trips – some open to the public and others exclusively for volunteers.  We offer a variety of Instruction & Training programs for a range of skills and involvement.  In addition to boating activities, we have a group that is dedicated to environmental work.


I’d like to volunteer with you!

GREAT! We are always welcoming new volunteers. We ask that you fill out this form so we add you to our database. Also, make sure to sign up for our newsletter. You don’t have to be a kayaking expert to join us. We are always in need of talent to help us run the programs – anything from planning trips to taking photos and greeting people.

Can’t wait to see you on the water,
