Charles River Canoe & Kayak

Nominated for: BEST Water Sport Rental

Multiple locations (See Map)

Paddle in the heart of Boston and Cambridge from our newest location in Kendall Square! Treat yourself to a phenomenal view of the Boston skyline and the Esplanade, as well as other nearby landmarks like the Zakim Bridge, MIT, the Museum of Science, and Boston University.

We offer hourly rentals of canoes and kayaks so you can enjoy the river on your own, and you can even paddle one-way to or from our Boston location on Soldier's Field Road! If you have your own canoe, kayak, or rowing shell you can store it on outdoor racks near the new dock in Broad Canal.

Experienced paddlers can satisfy their adventurous side with an excursion into Boston Harbor! We offer hourly and daily Boston Harbor rentals so you can venture through the locks and explore the harbor on your own.

You can also experience wonderful guided tours from our Kendall Square location. We offer daytime and evening Skyline Tours that explore the Charles River and the Esplanade, and Boston Harbor Tours that give you a taste of paddling in Boston Harbor. No matter how you get on the water, you'll see Boston from a whole new perspective!

One of the cheaper alternatives. Don't go with a klutz (like my husband, who tipped the canoe and made me ruin an expensive pocketbook and phone...). It's not hard to do either, the exercise is great, and the views are spectacular. Buy a disposable waterproof camera before you go!

Of course the best. Look for the Groupon and get a membership. You won't regret it!
