Boston Area Kayaking

510x350 kayak2
Kayaking is a very popular activity in the Boston Area. We offer both flatwater (lakes & ponds) and harbor paddling adventures from a number of different locations throughout the Eastern Massachusetts area. Basic kayaking lessons are available at Sweat Beach on Lake Pearl and require advanced booking unless otherwise indicated. Lessons are prescheduled at the beginning of the season (calendar of dates available online); but private, group and family paddling days are also available upon special request. Kayaking tours are available from June through September at various locations throughout Eastern Massachusetts. These are also prescheduled (check dates online) and great for anyone looking to venture out into the harbor and usually last for 3 hours. No previous experience is required for paddling programs and all equipment is provided for programs at no extra cost. We just ask that you arrive dressed appropriate for the weather (paddle shoes required, no sandals please) and bring snacks and water for the day. In addition to years experience and local knowledge, all kayak programs are taught and led by American Canoe Association (ACA) Certified Instructors. Kayak Instructors also hold CPR and first aid certification.

Eastern Mountain Sports also provides Kayak and Stand Up Paddle Board rentals for all to enjoy this great paddling destination. Come take advantage of one our great paddling opportunities and see why people rave about this little New England Gem.
