You can row a boat in Central Park... if you're looking to quickly become star-bored. For a truly enjoyable, on-the-water experience in the big city, look toward the Hudson -- and this sweet deal from Manhattan Kayak Company in Chelsea. Pay $40 (regularly $80) for the 50- to 60-minute, guided Fun in the Sun kayak tour of the Hudson for two people; this aquatic adventure starts with a 15- to 20-minute clinic in the protected waters in front of the boathouse to teach you the rudiments of paddling and boat safety. For those with a little more skill and a love of early-morning excursions, pay $40 (regularly $80) for an advanced-beginner Sunrise SUP tour for one that begins at 6:30 a.m., and comes with a buffet-style continental breakfast and the chance to shower at the boathouse. If you're a true newbie to stand-up paddleboarding, you can pay $45 (regularly $95) for the 90-minute SUP Basics lesson and river tour for one that helps you become an expert of the wildly popular sport -- all while having a hull of a good time.
