JERSEY CITY, New Jersey -- Paddling on the iconic and scenic Hudson River has never been easier.
Urban Paddle, a kayak and paddleboarding company based in Jersey City, New Jersey, is guiding paddlers of all experience levels through a unique water adventure.
"Our philosophy is to get more paddlers out on the water to awaken their love for paddling and kayaking," said Kevin Murray, owner of Urban Paddle.

From standup paddle lessons to sunset tours, and night LED kayaking, Urban Paddle is familiarizing clients with a new sport and the wonders of the Hudson River.
Beginning with one hour guided tour, guests are taught the basics of paddling and kayaking to ensure a fun and safe experience.
"We show you where to go, where not to go, how to pilot correctly, and safe paddling techniques," Murray said.
Located on the lower part of the Hudson, known for being a safer setting than the waters farther north, Urban Paddle hopes that through this exciting water sport, visitors will gain an appreciation for this body of water and the wonders it has to offer.
"We're the introduction to get people out on the water. Come paddle with us and see the Hudson for its beauty and stunning views of New York City," Murray said.
