OFFERED BY STORM KING ADVENTURE TOURS
Step foot onto Pollepel Island to visit the famous Bannerman Castle! Begin your adventure by taking a leisurely paddle across the Hudson River, then circle the island by kayak before stepping ashore. A Bannerman Castle Historian then directs a tour along the walkways of the island alongside the former arsenal and residence. Guests are advised to bring a light lunch or snack that they can enjoy while taking in the stunning views of the Hudson River from the Bannerman Castle residence. Light hiking and many stairs are apart of this tour.
As part of our ongoing collaboration with the Bannerman Castle Trust, these tours help contribute to their preservation efforts of the site.
