About Paddle Boston - Charles River Canoe & Kayak
Enjoy an outing on one of the most scenic sections of urban river in the country. An experience on the Charles River from our Boston location in Allston/Brighton is a wonderful respite from the surrounding city, with parkland on both shores and rowers plying the waters. Head downstream and you'll encounter local colleges (Harvard, M.I.T., and B.U.) and eventually the Esplanade (a great picnic spot!) and the unforgettable Boston skyline.This nine-mile stretch of river has no current, allowing painless round trips. However, renters can also enjoy one-way trips to or from our Cambridge location in Kendall Square — a unique way to see the city!

We had a great day kayaking, launching at the boathouse at Nahanton Park in Newton (free parking, clean facilities).

We went on the harbour tour last weekend and it was excellent. Lots of fun facts and interesting anecdotes. It was great to see the city from a different angle. As we had a small group we went quite quickly and got to see a couple of extra bits, but there was options for those that wanted a rest or slower pace too - definitely would work with a larger group in terms of making sure everyone can keep up and is looked after. Had a wonderful time and will definitely recommend to anyone I know going to Boston :D

My husband and I went on the evening Skyline Tour (5-7 PM), just as something different to do. We both have paddling experience but still consider ourselves beginners. Katie was an excellent guide! A perfect way to spend a summer Saturday evening.
