Jersey City, NEW JERSEY. (July 25, 2019) - Three brothers, Kevin Murray, 33, Patrick Murray, 31, and Brandon Murray, 27, celebrated the grand opening of their second kayak and paddleboard rental location, Urban Paddle, on July 25th, 2019 by a ribbon-cutting ceremony with Mayor Steven Fulop. 

Urban Paddle Kayak Tours, located at Liberty Harbor Marina in Jersey City, NJ offers scenic guided kayak tours of the New York City skyline. 

“We’re excited to bring paddling to the Hudson River in Jersey City, NJ with Urban Paddle. Our goal is to get corporations, families & friends on the water together for a remarkable experience touring the New York City skyline and the Statue of Liberty” says Kevin Murray.

The tour includes basic instruction and starts at $50/hr per person. “Each customer is given a proper paddling instruction and fitted for Personal Floatation Devices equipped with whistles. Our employees are CPR certified and trained to operate our on-site safety boat” according to Patrick Murray. 

The three Murray brothers opened their first location, Sandy Hook Kayaks, in May 2012.  Sandy Hook Kayaks, located at Lot C on the bayside of Sandy Hook Gateway National Park (Hartshorne Dr, Sandy Hook, NJ 07332), provides kayaks and paddleboards for patrons to rent hourly and also for purchase. Hourly kayak and paddleboard rentals at Sandy Hook Kayaks start at $20/hr, and can be reserved directly on or on a walk-in basis.

What sets both Sandy Hook Kayaks and Urban Paddle apart from competitors is their high-quality equipment. “We work very hard to make sure our water-sport equipment is of the absolute highest quality and exceeds each customers expectations. Our fleet is replenished with new inventory every year. Top brands that we carry include BIC Sport, Ocean Kayaks, and SIC SUP” according to Brandon Murray.
