Community Rowing allows New Yorkers of all ages to explore the Bronx River aboard student-built wooden row boats accompanied by Rocking the Boat staff who give them a chance to go rowing and introduce them to the beauty of New York's only fresh water river.

Community Sailing offers the unique opportunity to sail on the Bronx River. Over five weekend days throughout the summer, the general public is invited to board Rocking the Boat’s fleet of catamarans and sail with Rocking the Boat's high school Sailing apprentices.

Community Birding brings birdwatching to the shores of the Bronx River. Participants identify and learn about local species with the guidance of knowledgeable guides. Binoculars, spotting scopes, and field guides will be provided.
