It’s free to attend but donations are encouraged and reservations at 0-$20 are available for the front two rows & one complimentary beverage.

In the mid 1800s, Creekers & Pointers were terms used for rival gangs of the Roosters, a band of thugs that frequented South Brooklyn and Gowanus. This season, the Gowanus Dredgers are reconnecting Gowanus regulars and visitors with events at our Canal and hope to offer free canoe voyages. We hope to offer Saturday voyages before shows south of the active EPA cleanup (location : TBD) but stop by our boathouse for some hootin’ good times as the sun sets.
