Tour Boston Harbor by Kayak  

Experience the thrill of paddling through the Charles River Locks into Boston Harbor in kayaks, while being entertained with the history and stories of the area. After a quick introduction to kayak strokes, we'll launch our double kayaks and paddle toward the Museum of Science. We'll glide through the old locks of the original Charles River Dam, then paddle past the Nashua Street Park and under the Zakim Bunker Hill Bridge. We'll navigate the locks at the current dam and enter Boston's Inner Harbor, and paddle to Charlestown Navy Yard to view the U.S.S. Constitution, U.S.S. Cassin Young, and other ships berthed there. From the Navy Yard, we'll enjoy the amazing waterfront skyline view, including the Old North Church and the Financial District. On our return we'll explore the narrow, winding channels at North Point Park and break for a snack before heading toward the Esplanade. Paddlers of all levels are welcome; please be prepared to cover a moderate distance and paddle for at least two hours. Tour information will be emailed upon registration. Discounts or waivers do not apply.
