Lakes & Water Adventures

Get outside and explore New York's greatest water adventures. From vacations on the shores of the Atlantic Ocean to canoeing or kayaking trips on lazy upstate lakes, you'll love to dip into New York water. You'll also discover tour boats on almost every large lake and waterway in the state, where you sit back and enjoy the scenery. If the romantic notion of a magnificent castle only accessible by water on Heart Island excites you, you'll love Boldt Castle and the tale of its origins. Adirondack Water Ski and Wakeboard School's certified instructors make New York water activities fun and safe with all levels of lessons for Lake George skiing, wake skating/surfing, barefooting, tubing, and more! For high river adventures and family fun, try whitewater rafting at challenging upstate rivers, water skiing at Daggett Lake, or fly fishing on Ausable River.
