Weather Conditions - Leonardo, NJ

Please check the weather the day of your trip. We will sometimes close for unsafe kayaking conditions, especially high winds. 

We watch the winds for both speed and direction. Generally, any wind under 10 knots (about 11.5 mph) is safe for kayaking. An offshore breeze makes it difficult to paddle back, especially on a paddle board. Even when wind is in the safe range, gusts can increase the water choppiness.

When the the wind is around the 12 knot mark, less experienced kayakers should stay close to shore. When the wind is above the 13 knot mark (around 15 mph), we will suspend rentals.
